Who is dot.COMME?
Born in June 2013 dot.COMME (www.dotcomme.net
) emerged online with an explosion of Vintage/ Archival pieces from the designer labels; COMME des GARÇONS, Junya Watanabe, Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, Walter Van Beirendonck & Bernhard Willhelm. Pieces from the late 70’s and beyond have been curated by long time collectors Octavius La Rosa and Holly-Rose Butler. Currently the largest online showcase of these designers in the world, they are located in Melbourne, Australia but their clients reside all over the globe.
La Rosa is an encyclopaedia of Comme, naming a collection with the hint of just a button or fabric swatch, the passion for the designers and their work is so strong that he would travel half way across Italy in search of a jacket to his matching velvet suit pants (and did). The dot.COMME collection will forever remain in the cupboards and on the body’s of collectors and people that just want to look damn cool.
