Japanese fashion house Comme des Garçons taps French glass artisans Baccarat for a special collaborative event. To welcome summer, the duo are launching a pop-up with a special edition piece of stemware.
Reimagining the Harcourt with polka dots.
Having recently dipped into the world of Japanese fashion courtesy of fragment design, Maison Baccarat is no stranger to inventive creations. This collaboration, however, isn’t a new shape – instead, Comme des Garçons tweaks one of the iconic classic Baccarat creations.
The Harcourt wine glass has remained a staple of Baccarat’s line-up since the Maison was founded in 1841, simultaneously highlighting the house’s knack for elegant design and its equisite attention to detail. Sleek lines inform the glass, arcing down onto a brilliantly simple hexagonal base.
Comme des Garçons’ collaborative edition places branding on the base and Comme des Garçons’ preferred polka dots across the bowl, yielding a glass that is equal parts progressive and classic.
Joining the $415 Harcourt glass, a commemorative T-shirts will drop at the special event hosted inside Comme des Garçons Aoyama, which begins May 31.
