Do you mean the Witches collection? It's AW 2004. I think Style has it.

All black coll might be old indeed. You might want to take a look at the Japanese coll. from the 80s thread. There are a lot of info there:-) Hope it helps:-)


Ballerinas, might be this? SS05

Comme Des Garcons: Lumps and Bumps collection
I have read about Comme des Garcon's Lumps and Bumps collection, but have seen very few pictures. Does anyone have any information on it? Pictures would be wonderful. Maybe even a video? Anything!

Comme des Garcons Collection Pictures from the 1990's

I'm sure you could find it using the search function
Try use "search titles" and put their name there --it helps

cheers

if you search for "comme des garcons" on youtube, there's a japanese documentary on rei, and you can watch quite a chunky piece of that collection (and a few others)...

the documentary is uploaded in 6 parts and unfortunnately I can't remember in which one this collection is analyzed, but it's definitely worth your time and you can certainly watch parts of this colletcion as well as several fashion people commenting on it in english (the documentary is in japanese and I so wish someone would translate it in english...)
