It does looks like a retrospective with all the lumps, bumps, knots and tutus. Nevertheless, it still has that delicate feel to it that makes you all soft inside. I wonder if ANY of these are translated into comercial pieces, or if they hold no relation to the end product.

I like it , I think but sometimes I feel she's trying to push things to a limit by just pushing things to the limit just becos she can ...

Pity the retailers trying to push this .

I know they will buy CDG s multitude of sub brands ....but these surely will end in being 50 to 80% off at some rack sale .

At times I think she's laughing inside .

It's definitely wearable....I mean, the models are wearing the garments...so they can obviously be worn......but......I just don't see this collection as being practical...or even functional.

How does someone sit down wearing wearing these, pieces...unless you want to stand all day??

All the pieces are wearable....I just don't see them as practical....or functional, aside from putting it upon one's body.

Waste not, want not.

Makes me think of the piles of clothing shipped to thrift stores - daily.

To me this feels like a statement about consumption. Or over-consumption.

I like that her collections give me abstract thoughts. It borders on poetry.

practical or not, i'm still blown away by how complex the construction is on some of these pieces. it's nice to see a collection where the clothes don't seem to have their place or their specific terminology in a fashion design textbook. there are so many clothes presented on runways that could be made out of simple sewing patterns, but not at comme des garcons.

I see that she let her monsters emerge as a trigger to defamiliarize the ordinary world/lay bare everyday grotesques familiarized as social routines.
"monster" as 'negative classicist'.
but this is the very heart of what designers like her, carol christian poell etc have been doing, expressed most straightforwardly ever. it crossed my mind that she is rounding off her career.

i have to say it looks really fantastic upon a closer view….and i tend to agree with the notion of over-consumption because as a narrative it literally looks like the kind of twisted up scrap heap you would witness at one of those garment factories….

again,wearable or functional,it does appear kawakubo is once again trying to wake up the industry….make it think once again.
