The collaboration of the week : Gosha Rubchinskiy x Comme des Garçons
The young Russian designer famous for his photographs and his unusual masculine sportswear launches a first unisex perfume with Comme Des Garçons.
Inspired equally by Russian youth, skate culture and urban architecture of post-soviet Russia, Gosha Rubchinskiy launches a fragrance directly in line with his inspiration field and his fashion designer work. If the perfume seems fresh, it distills warm and tar breezes of asphalt burning under the warmed up wheels of a skateboard but also some colder notes from grey minerals along the cold sea. Collaborating since 2012 with Comme des Garçons, this olfactive association around a perfume bottle makes complete sense. A cohesive collab, since the perfume is very Comme des Garçons but also extremely ruchinskiyian. A voluminous compilations of photographs from the designer comes with this olfactive project.
Gosha Rubchinskiy X Comme des Garcons, Eau de toilette, 76 euros for 100 ml. Perfume Book, 30 euros. Available at Comme des Garçons Parfum, 23, place du marché saint-honoré, Paris Ier.
