Comme des Garçons announced today that one of their sub-labels, Tao Comme des Garçons, will close. Designed by Tao Kurihara, the womenswear line was founded in 2005; its spring 2011 collection, which was shown in Paris in October, will have been its last. “Tao wants to have a change of lifestyle and prefers to concentrate her creative energies on the ever popular label Tricot Comme des Garçons, shown in Tokyo twice a year,” a Tao spokesperson told WWD. Kurihara has worked closely with Junya Watanabe at Comme des Garçons since she graduated from Central St. Martins in 1997. Tao was her first line for the company.
