Enigmatic. Comme Des Garçons SS18


As usual, Rei Kawakubo‘s Comme des Garçons leaves it open to your very personal interpretation. Many questions arise, for which no answer will be given in terms of a simplistic ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Why was the collection presented at the Brutalist building of Russian embassy in Paris? Why were some of the model’s garments and headpieces featuring Hello Kitty and My Little Pony toys? What was the idea behind clashing Arcimboldo’s 16th century painting with manga? Patchwork, graffiti, accumulation. Childishness, anxiety, volumes. Does Rei even care, you critics and bloggers?
