The first Comme by Rei piece that I was ever aware of was a huge wool smock dress , with large shirring on the chest , modelled by a deaf american actress for a newspaper interview in the early 80s .It was TOTALLY unlike anything I had ever seen before .
I remember BROWNS in London sold Comme exclusively at first , and then the franchise was taken over by a danish entrepreneur - Peder Bertelsen - who was opening name boutiques all over the place ( eg Armani etc. ) .
Browns got the franchise back after he downsized , and kept it until Dover Street Market opened .
