user500, the second group of pieces in post 487 and the first group in 488 are a/w 02

the one gius posted about (the red & black one w/white cutouts) looks like it might be s/s 92

here are examples of the s/s 92 cut-out designs. these are made of paper; the cutouts in user's picture look like fabric, but i still think it looks like the same collection. (the paper dresses were probably one of a kind handmade objects for the runway, whereas the stuff sold in stores would have been similar designs but of fabric).




Quote:
Dresses made of paper were worn in Japan during the Kamakura period (1192-1333), and during the Edo period (1603-1867( expensive paper dresses were considered extremely stylish.

This paper dress would probably fit nicely into Japanese tradition. Japanese stencil paper designers created the cut pattern known as goshoguruma and momiji. Kawakubo thought that this cut pattern, used during production, looked lilke lace, but thought it a shame that after its use as a stencil the pattern never came out in the open. The use of paper as a material for a dress, and the idea of using the cutout pattern itself as the main feature of the dress demonstrate Kawakubo's original point of view where fabrics are concerned.
from the book "fashion" (the kyoto costume institute collection)

this is the one user posted earlier, notice the white cotton (?) cutouts on the sleeves.

gius, yes it does not perfectly fit into the topic of the thread. half of it is from after 2000. i didn't find a better place to post...

the tao is from one of her latest collections.

the pic gius posted is from f/w 2001, i think. not sure of course.
fashion.fashoff, i am not sure if this sweater has cut outs. it looks more like a black and white wool sweater to me. the picture is a bit small, though.



underwear fabrics like satin and lace were used for outerwear. notice the bustier top.

you're right user. i guess she just re-used the white circular motifs in a later collection.

Such a GREAT thread! Thanks user500 for the "six" images; I´d never seen them before! Sublime.

Wanted to ask if there are used bookstores that sell old fashion promo material, like "six", those direct-mail cards from CDG & manifestos? Or is it just ebay etc where one has to turn to for those? Contact details?


Thanks in advance!
