Noir Kei Ninomiya

Kei Ninomiya quit school at the Royal Academy in Antwerp for a patternmaking position at Comme des Garçons in 2008 and has never looked back — especially after Rei Kawakubo greenlit the production of a line of his own within the world of Comme in 2012. Signatures of the Noir line include high-contrast silhouettes, ultra-feminine detailing, artful use of synthetics, and an exclusively black color palette.
