PFW: Comme des Garcons

“Kawakubo, sees endless possibilities to subvert and send up said narrow genre of clothes-cutting, often beautifully so, as she did with her spectacular fall collection.” (WWD)

With a collection based in menswear, containing structured and heavy fabric items, the details however were extremely feminine, with rosettes, ruffles and bows. There were also feminine prints such as houndstooth, pinstripes, and multicoloured prints.

Starting the collection off were solid buttoned up blouses, over were heavy blazers and matching pants/skirts shredded at the bottom and decked in oversized fabric rosettes, the silhouette’s then progressed to oversized sleeves and shoulders with fur showing out of the blazers. The colours then turned softer, but the volume of the garments just enlarged, with large bows, and more volume in the shoulders especially. Hints of velvet and bright multicolored prints ended the show.

Overalls, a beautifully constructed collection with some surprises, something we are used to seeing from Comme des Garçons
