The response to Junya Watanabe — who solves the problem of his excruciatingly tailored shoulder line by stitching down the sleeves and turning his coats into trench-capes this season — is, as ever, enthusiastic, but not nearly as hysterical as the waves of applause that ensue at the end of the Comme des Garçons show. (As usual, no amount of stomping and clapping will induce the poker-faced designer to take a bow, or even peek out from backstage.) The models at Comme, emerging in dead silence in giant paper-doll-esque felt coats and frocks rendered in bright colors and huge kindergarten prints, seem to inhabit their own universe, a place where shape and size have a completely different meaning, but where the beauty of the vision is indisputable.
Rei Kawakubo reaffirms her genius with her fall 2012 collection in Paris.
Rei Kawakubo was backstage. Despite a forceful ovation at the École des Beaux-Arts on Saturday, she had remained rooted in place, all five feet of her, dressed in the black battle garb that had turned the Paris fashion soil 30 years ago. She had on black sunglasses, which made her look like a rock star — or rather, at almost 70, simply confirmed that she is one.
It's 9.30am on a damp grey Sunday morning on Redchurch Street in the East End and a gaggle of Japanese tourists wearing Comme des Garçons quilted coats is framed against a wall of the city's finest graffiti.
it's worth remembering that those who manage to sail through these shows relatively unscathed are truly impressive. Prigent reminded the audience that the subject matter itself should be keeping the industry light: "I think fashion is really fun, and it's important to show it that way," he said. "Even at Comme des Garcons they laugh, sometimes. I asked Rei Kawakubo and she said, 'I laugh when people fall.'
Je les pousse à rester indépendants. Sinon la mode n'avance pas. Certes, cela signifie plus de week-ends, des cauchemars et la peur de ne pas vendre... Mais je me souviens de Rei Kawakubo (Comme des garçons) qui prenait le bus pour se rendre à son défilé, d'Azzedine Alaïa qui dormait sur son matelas au pied de son mannequin de bois, ou de Jean Paul Gaultier qui recrutait ses copines comme mannequins. Tous ces gens ont réussi parce qu'ils avaient le "feu sacré de l'art", comme on dit en Italie. Ils n'avaient pas peur de voyager en 3e classe.
Shows at Haider Ackermann, Lanvin, and Comme des Garçons aim for the heart and the mind.
At Comme des Garçons, designer 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. And at Junya Watanabe, another brand under the Comme des Garçons umbrella, the designer played with the juxtaposition of typical menswear and womenswear fabrics, lining sweetly printed dresses with pinstripes and transforming khaki trenchcoats into capes. All of these tricks forced a furrowing of the brow, a quizzical expression, and the use of a little brain power to digest it all.
Among the guests settling in for Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des Garçons show on Saturday were a young woman and her daughter, who appeared to be about four. The mother dutifully informed the child of show etiquette, specifically, “No talking when the ladies come out on the runway.” Alas, the girl broke protocol with the very first look and a single word of wonder: “Wow!”
Des teintes de sous-bois égaient les collections de l'hiver prochain.
La palette la plus fraîche, la plus incroyable, est celle de Rei Kawakubo, fondatrice de la marque Comme des garçons. la styliste japonaise aux soixante-dix printemps dessine une garde-robe rose, lilas, vermillon, bleu électrique, loin du corps, comme celle d'un mannequin de carton, pour petite fille ayant arrêté de grandir.
