Do you ever look at your emoji options and think, My, what an expansive array of images that somehow better convey an emotional response than words ever will, and yet, I wish they were more chic? Have no fear, Rei Kawakubo has your back (as she always does), with a new collection of Comme des Garçons PLAY logo emoji.
The heart with eyes has proved to be a coveted creature, appearing on all sorts of CDG items (as evidenced by an in-store installation in Tokyo to celebrate the new stickers). It was only a matter of time before the expressive little guy donned an array of facial expressions—and props, and hats—to be sent in lieu of picking up a phone and actually talking to people. Even FU's EIC, Katharine K. Zarrella, who is staunchly anti-emoji, but deeply pro-CDG, would consider using them, which is all the endorsement you need. And honestly, what better way to text your friends about the forthcoming Comme des Garçons Met exhibition than with a happy little black heart?
The new emoji’s are available now on Apple, for $0.99.
