comme des garcons 1980s





a marvelous example of construction and craftsmanship this sari dress is simply constructed of two wide panels of handwoven panels of a black, white and gray linen and cotton blend. the skirt is a basic pareo wrapped and tied at one hip which is sewn at the waist to the bateau neck top. the top dips and then turns inside out, in front and back, to form a simple attached scarf which can be worn draped over the shoulder on one or both shoulders. the fabric pattern is a basic homage to antique textiles and you just have to see the warp and weave up close to appreciate the construction. unlined and sporting the original comme Des garcons label. perfect barefoot on a smolderingly hot day or with cherry red jcrew wedge thongs - a summer staple - as you run to the corner store for newcastle and strawberries.

I found an nice excerpt about Japanese aesthetics:

The domination of aesthetic scruples over Japanese life has, as its culminating instance, the tea ceremony - a marvel of constrained social ballet - to the study of which whole lives have been devoted. Associated with this triumph of manners is an art of mood and evocation, in which significance is found in the small, concentrated gesture, the sudden revelation of transcendent meaning in what is most ordinary and unassuming. In the late 18th century Motoori Norinaga, a leading literary scholar, summed up the essence of Japanese art and literature as the expression of a touching intimation of transience, which he captured in the famous phrase mono no aware, meaning roughly “the sensitivity to the sadness of things.” Other aesthetic qualities emphasized by classical scholars and critics are en (“charming”), okashi (“amusing”), and sabi (having the beauty of old, faded, worn, or lovely things). In all such aesthetic categories, we can sense the resonance of the Taoist and Buddhist ideas of renunciation.http://www.compilerpress.atfreeweb.c...202003%20c.htm
