Comme des Garçons Autumn/Winter 2015

Expecting the unexpected, we discovered Rei Kawakubo’s Autumn/Winter 2015 show with an ambivalent feeling. This ice-cold beauty collection is mainly composed of lace, bow tie, black and white and seems to reinterpret the wedding gown. Fabrics are folded, enrolled and with holes. One of the pieces even takes the appearance of an elephant’s head. True to her deconstruction process, Kawakubo transformed the shapes and sizes of the clothes, making a dress look like a giant cone as big as the model’s body. Another dress takes the shape of a circle spread all around the body, giving the silhouette a vast volume. Once again, Comme des Garçons’ show brought a fresh and new perspective to the designing process. It proves that being a fashion designer is also being an artist. It enables to express one’s own way of thinking with fabrics, materials, cuts and shapes. Rei Kawakubo offered us a show that looked like a ghosty dance where models stride with elegance. Faces are painted in white and barely visible. Something mysterious comes from this collection, pushing once again fashion’s boundaries.
