All that is Cosmic Wonder
Since a lot of things related to Cosmic Wonder don't fall into seasons or shows, and there are a lot of interesting visuals, I thought I'd start a thread for all things Cosmic Wonder.

These are some of my favorite fashion-related images at the moment.





Images from shiseido.co.jp

We have threads on CW already. Maybe we should merge them.

I don't know,though,maybe like that CCP thread we should have one on just CW in general.

I just read through google that he's having an exhibition(followed by a performance with his band)in the Netherlands called "Magic Village".

Here's some more images from his uber-cool presentations.

A/W 02-

This one had such an air of Hitchcock



While I do feel he makes beatiful pieces,I also feel a tremendous part of his work is extremely visual. I wouldn't deem it as art but certainly strong imagery.

i see no reason why cosmic woonder shouldn't have a general thread for info...it's a fairly unknown brand and maybe more people will learn about it this way if they can get a general overview...good idea...

*as long as we aren't re-posting everything that has already been posted over and over...

I guess I kind of get whatever image they're trying to portray, but I still don't see anything in the actual clothes. Every time I look at CW, I'm left feeling confused.

Well,the great thing about CW clothes is it's simplicity. Quirky as it is,there's still a certain ease to everything. And quite easy to mix with other things.

One thing that's distinct about Yukinori is the way he twists classical shapes and details.

Wow, Scott, thanks for that great link and the beautiful photos...they are my world for the next ten minutes.

I agree wholeheartedly that it's less about the clothes than...something else, although I couldn't say what it is. The performance, the presentation, the look altogether. I'm not sure that the clothes are so exciting by themselves, and they probably aren't that significant when considered in the context of fashion history. and while I hesitate to call what he does art, that's sort of the closest thing. Because it's not really fashion. Reminds me of Feral Childe, a duo of two New York-based artists who make clothes (for cash), but also art objects and large installations with performances...they are also practicing artists, one a painter, the other a video artist, so this kind of artistic creative energy pervades all that they do, even if not everyone would agree that it's "art" per se.
