With the popularity of SSUR The Cutâ€™s â€œCOMMEâ€ collection now firmly solidified as a household idiom, it was only a matter of time until the flipped motif was reappropriated into a new colorway. For Holiday 2012, Hong Kong-based label CLOT has aligned itself with SSURâ€™s The Cut line for a limited edition, Christmas-inspired â€œCOMME des FUCKDOWN*â€ capsule collection.
Employing the decidedly tongue-in-cheek motif in recognizable bold white typeface hits, red is the predominant hue used across a range of hats, beanies, hoodies, coachâ€™s jackets and T-shirts. A nod to the traditional Christmas colors â€” and perhaps an indirect link to a color favorite of the Hong Kong label â€” the CLOT x SSUR collection makes use of the same black and white â€œCOMMEâ€ releases weâ€™ve seen in the past, just with an updated colorway. The entire collection will be made available from CLOTâ€™s retail brick & mortar shops, JUICE, as well as the JUICE online store beginning December 14.
