Rei Kawakubo, the enigmatic founder and current head designer of Comme Des Garçons, is the subject of a retrospective exhibition opening at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art – titled Rei Kawakubo/Comme Des Garçons: Art of the In-Between. To mark the momentous occasion, longtime collaborators Nike have helped to create a special co-branded make-up of the Pegasus 83 model that will be available exclusively at the event.
Comme have turned their hand to their hand to the silhouette previously, and the black leather panelling on this pair looks to be borrowed from that prior release. However, the ornate gold 'CDG' branding on the heel really sets this one apart as something special.
The Comme Des Garçons x Nike Air Pegasus 83 in Gold will be available on May 4 from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
