Comme Des Garçons Homme Plus SS99 “Secret Treasures” 3D Floral Tee. CDG’s reversible clothing is a signature of the label, however SS99 embraces Rei’s penchant for dualities. The outdoor runway featured models walking down a flight of stairs and circling a path among the audience in what initially seems to be classic CDGHP silhouettes. As the show continues, the models gradually show the reverse side of their clothing, initially styled in conjunction with other obverse sided clothing, then later fully reverse. The collection features extravagant patterns ‘hidden’ away inside what seems to be conventional clothing. The tee for sale here is embellished with carefully constructed floral patterns that resemble 3D roses.

Stephen Sprouse “S” 88 Multicolor Border Knit Sweater. For this season and a few seasons onward before his bankruptcy, Sprouse utilized his “xerox on xerox” designs which look were a staple in the late 80s and early 90s before it peaked as a cliche in the mid 90s. Stephen Sprouse pioneered his version of the xerox design at the Andy Warhol factory by xeroxing models/figures and creating a collage resembling the look in the advert pictured here featuring the border knit sweater. The hodgepodge presentation of subjects photographed individually in different contexts, yet grouped together by their essence through a curator, with thick borders, filtered photo degradation and accentuated sharpness as a byproduct from xeroxing the same image consecutively were ubiquitous in 90s youth media.9/10 condition.

Issey Miyake Tee with graphics by Takashi Murakami. From the Issey Miyake Mens collection released in ~SS1999-2000 entitled “Smoothed Edges.” Within this collection Issey and Takashi experimented with pre-shrunken silhouettes, giving the graphics a visibly worn texture. Takashi’s infamous character motifs, such as the “Flower of Joy,” serve as the focal point of this collaboration. This is one of the earliest Murakami collaborations with any designer or artist making these tees rather difficult to find.8/10 condition. Fits a slim M
