It was starting to look like Angelenos would need to spring for a New York trip in order to get in on Comme des Garcons' limited-edition BLACK line. But it turns out the collection, which is inspired by CdG classics, isn't limited to its own boutiques and a pop-up corner at Barneys in New York. Trendy Paris shop Colette has many of the pieces up for sale online.
Above, we've picked our favorite items, or the ones that most represent designer Rei Kawakubo's classics. Technically, if it's a BLACK item, it's already a classic, but nothing says Rei more than pants with half a skirt attached. The Colette shop is only around for two weeks, so enjoy the online shopping while you can.
