The Comme des Garçons PLAY Black Emblem Stripe Shirt is the Franco-Japanese label's classic collared shirt, cut from soft yet crisp cotton poplin.
If a global designer staple has emerged in the 21st century, it is Comme des Garçons PLAY. Launched in 2002, The line from Rei Kawakubo's avant-garde label has come to set a high standard for minimalist wardrobe basics. Each season, the endearing heart logo created by New York designer Filip Pagowski appears in fresh configurations on the label's line of t-shirts short and long-sleeved; cardigans; hoodies; and collared shirts. Whatever form it takes, the anthropomorphized heart emblem always speaks to the evocative power of the simplest iconography and branding.
