Comme des Garcons Homme Plus
1995

Comme des Garcons Spring Summer 1995 Sleep collection became infamous as it was interpreted as referencing Nazi Germany concentration camp prisoners’ clothing. Garments from the collection featured boot prints, stencilled numbers and outfits including striped pyjamas. Designer Rei Kawakubo withdrew the pyjamas from sale, though other pieces of the collection still went into production.
