For her SS2010 collection Rei Kawakubo designed perfect shoulders on her outfits. Except, they were all in the wrong places (around the breast or the upper arm). She also made leather shoulder braces, worn on top of some outfits. Could it be that she wanted to express some criticism towards the focus on shoulder-pads in many present-day collections? The models had colorful cotton candy hair and wore flat shoes. Their clothes had some sports references: tight cycle-pants were worn over black leggings. A lot of fabrics were interestingly mixed, from chiffon to leather to velvet. They came together in patchworked dresses. These dresses seemed somewhat Victorian influenced in the way they were shaped, fitted, draped and dragged. Throughout the whole collection Kawakubo brought back military influences and shades of nude. In this way she seemed to be reminding the public that she was one of the first designers to come up with these trends. (Tess van Daelen)
