^ I was so sure that SS07 was the "lumps and bumps" collection, so I searched and came up with this via wikipedia
The 1997 spring/summer collection, often referred to the 'lumps and bumps' collection, was a much talked about show in Paris that season. It featured predominately tight tops and skirts that were swollen by goosedown-filled lumps which distorted the body shape. This led to a collaboration, also in 1997, between Rei Kawakubo and New York-based choreographer Merce Cunningham called 'Scenario'.
Then I found this article in The NewYork Times
Horyn introduces Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, the mastermind behind the innovative Comme Des Garcons house. Kawakubo, a clothier for nearly 40 years, is known for grappling with "problems of consciousness" through collections like her 1996 Lumps and Bumps, whose Quasimodo-like pieces challenged the boundaries of female form, volume and space. Kawakubo has also helped reinvent the fashion business, granting proteges Junya Watanabe and Tao Kurihara the freedom to develop distinct brands under the Garcons umbrella. Horyn paints a colorful, even awesome portrait of the designer, who maintains control in her studios while fostering creative autonomy.
Maybe we need another confirmation??? cause gius, you really made me doubt myself
