Dress, shirt-style, of black and white checked cotton, wool, and nylon. Main garment has long sleeves and center-front button closure. Falls to ankle. Attached at the bottom hem is a short jacket that forms a train; it can either trail behind, or loop back up to be worn over the dress, creating a shorter balloon hem.
Comme des Garçons' designs often contain elements of surprise. This "convertible" garment is made of two separate pieces joined at the hem -- a floor-length buttoned shirt with a short jacket forming the "train." The jacket can also be worn over the shirt creating a shorter balloon hem.
