Last we heard from Japanese clothing label Comme des Garçons, they were cranking out Converse Jack Purcell lowtops as part of the PLAY brand. The last one was over a year ago, and now their latest looks to help establish another CDG sublabel in more sneakerheads’ closets. The Supreme x Comme des Garçons x Vans Sk8-Hi features a unique blocking pattern whereby the lower half of the side panel of an ohterwise black/grey design sees the same stripes added that completely cover a pair of Era lowtops and a few different 5-panel camp hats. There’s a bunch more Red Box-branded apparel done in CDG SHIRT fabrics, and the entire capsule will arrive at Dover Street Market in Ginza, Japan on Friday, March 16th along with the four Supreme retail locations and their e-store, with the Vans arriving later in June.
