Comme des Garcons team up with The Beatles

Comme des Garcons has teamed up with Apple Corps, the music label formed by The Beatles, to produce a range of bags and clothing.

The collection, designed by Rei Kawakubo, features the distinguishable apple symbol made famous by the music label which controls The Beatles back-catalogue.

The range consists of bags, shirts and t-shirts and as well as apples, included in the designs are the polka dots synonymous with Comme de Garcons.

No real leather is used anywhere in the collection to come in line with the policies of Apple Corps.

A preview is scheduled to take place at Dover Street Market on Friday with a limited number of items available before the worldwide launch next spring.
