Hours after having witnessed the Comme des Garcons show we’re still confused about what we saw. With invisible clothes as a starting point Rei Kawakubo came up with a series (just twenty looks to be exact – see how that’s possible Rousteing?) of extreme outfits. Sculptural larger than life looks in which the model’s bodies completely disappeared. Heart shaped, polka dot and tartan prints made an extra statement as the materials were dark and heavy especially for a summer collection. But why would Kawakubo be concerned with seasons when she’s not even worried about making true clothing. You can even wonder if this line up is still to be called fashion rather than just art. No one (other than Gaga, who should really retire her freak show sooner than later) would leave the house in round pillow with Peter Pan collar. There’s not a woman out there who would really benefit from that large tartan blanket. And that black pleated elephant(ish) creation hardly does anything good for your body. Yet it’s that non fashion touch that seems to keep Comme des Garcons fans excited. Let’s elaborate a little more, while we wait for more wearable pieces to hit the stores.
