The Japanese fashion house announces a new brand, set to launch in July, and drops a preview capsule collection only available in New York City.

This week, beloved Japanese fashion house Comme de Garçons announced the launch of a new brand: CDG. The venture will drop its first full collection in July (sold at Dover Street Market Japan and on a website designed by the house's visionary founder Rei Kawakubo) and then will expand to other markets in September.

However, to tide Comme de Garçons devotees over until the full CDG line hits—and give them a taste of what's to come—the house also released a preview capsule collection entitled Breaking News, which will only be available in New York City (at the brand's store in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood and at Dover Street Market New York).
