Absolutely Brilliant:
Comme des Garcons Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

Rei Kawakubo Paris fashion week new look fashion show fashion Comme des Garcons From HotelFashionland: “Rei Kawakubo offered an intellectually playful collection of two-dimensional clothes — dresses that were flat as a pancake, jackets with sleeves that looked more like envelopes than like cylinders, and trousers that gave the models the physique of a chalk outline. In their bright plastic helmet bobs atop clothes cut big and flat, her models looked like a parade of beguiling, clownish paper dolls, their silhouettes as unfettered as preschool cutouts. It was fabulous. Structured fabrics in clear, dense hues set the tone, but Kawakubo also offered megapatterns, both dots and flowers. When she tired of flat textures, she went for shine, not of the chichi embroidery genre but a type resembling those giant iridescent gift bags you buy at The Container Store. And just when you thought you grasped this big-and-flat thing, that it was all in good fun, she sent out some girls in rose prints with their faces shrouded in matching executioner’s hoods, in fabric, for a trace of her signature subversive tension.”
