banner‘‘The monsters I thought about are those that don’t fit in…’’

Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo has a vision, and it’s already keeping me warm as the fall approaches at a fast pace. As he redifines the boundaries of what fashion can be, Rei Kawakubo’s latest collection involves huge knitted extension that distort silhouettes and leave an impressionnable mark on the eye. Challenging the norm, this collections rejects all that can be ‘‘ordinary’’ while hinting on the extreme’s in today’s humanity. These beautiful monsters stand tall and proud and express the true artistic vision behind Comme des Garçons.

“The monsters I thought about are those that don’t fit in—those who think differently from the majority, the people of exception, outsiders. I wish that society would place more importance and value on these kinds of monsters.”—Rei Kawakubo
