Konnichiwa, Paris Fashion Week! No, I haven't gone ignorant and had french words mixed up, it's just that Japanese designers reign Paris Fashion Week.
I am loving Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons.
Comme des Garçons
The influence was obvious: Japanese. Rigid kimono tops, the rising sun symbol, and the geisha made-up faces.
I especially love the ballerina skirt pair-ups.
The first label by far to make black and white not boring. The perfectly imperfect cut pieces were exciting.
It was also androgyny of a different kind; more gentleman that boyfriend.
