Post Paris XXVII

A 'False Encyclopaedia' double feature with Christopher Shannon, discussing:
Comme des Garçons Fall/Winter 2013

Louise Wilson would say on the MA "It doesn't matter what you do, what's important is that you do it well", this really applies to Comme des Garçons. Without the great fabric, fit and finishing it could fall into scary BA collection territory. I'm always astounded by how well the pieces are made and the exploration and repetition of a few ideas. It's such a palette cleanser from the depressing abundance of hard lines, tight dresses and overly high shoes, so nice to see work that designers have touched. Still have no idea if anyone buys it though, apart from a few ageing gallery owners and art teachers.

Extreme tailoring, shredded and über-constructed. Of origami roses, bows and knots. Like the neurotic, twisted fantasy of a lesbian investment broker. With a surrealist power suit parade, Rei Kawakubo is introducing Japanese Psycho. And once again, it all is like nothing before.
