also now and then knots and concatenation have been there as if they were traces of resistance to the drive towards disintegration, amorphism.

let me not join you bearbrick, as I'd never force on you what it suggests to me. to make it clear, I have no problem with the way it appears to you even though her approaches to this line are actually more complicated, conflicted, dynamic in her studio than in your head, because thoughts are free, feelings are particular, and the work is there independent.

I find it funny that bearbrick posts only in Comme des Garçons threads or comments only in relation to Rei Kawakubo. I'm sure she would be flattered by all the attention.

I am surprised by your lack of research and accuracy before you posted such a silly statement .

It was obviously meant to be hyperbolic, but I'm glad you could still see the humor in it. No need to be defensive But if a vast majority of one's posts since 2008 are CDG-related, then a duck is a duck.

I agree with you runner. People should be free to make whatever associations they want to when it comes to approaching art and design. I see no point in resorting to censorship, shame or derision when it comes to another's opinion.

And ? Your point ? Censoring me , perhaps ? Defensive ? Ducks ? A vast majority vs the original, all ? I am glad you finally did some research into my responses instead of sprouting nonsense and the attempt at canvassing for support Surely you have better thing to do , surely .

i don't care to engage in the back and forth...
i just want to say to runner that i always enjoy your interpretations...
and you always have excellent visuals to back them up...
i confess, there are times when i do not immediately see what you see, even with your descriptions and visual references...
but, eventually, they start to come into focus and it's quite wonderful to be able to see a thing from another person's unique perspective...

it's almost like i have to look at it sideways with my head tilted and think about it and then think about it and then think about it again...
and then, finally...
there it is~!!!

and then i feel like this...
ah!...so, desu ne...

this just happened when i looked at the images runner posted in #31...
at first, i was distracted by the 80's look...
all i was thinking was how much i love that thing and how i wish wish wish to heck that i had owned that in the 80's and had it to wear all of these years since...
but, just now, i suddenly saw the twist in the image next to it and realized how similar they are to the twists in the 80's sweater and those are, of course, so similar to the giant twisted sculptural pieces from this collection...

yattah!
click!!!!.....it all just came into focus...
...

i LOVE when that happens...
thank you runner, dear...

good words-
i knew this oneamorphism
a characterisation of objects without form, or with random or unstructured form.

but this one is new to me-
seems like it's a mathematical or computer programming or SMS term?
concatenation
a series of interconnected things or events.
*seems to have something to do with string theory?

very interesting, sir...
interesting indeed...

i think whether one agrees or not,i appreciate any kind of food for thought…any time one can dissect and come up with theories and back it up much deeper than the oversimplified,vacuous fashion-speak i am all for. and i certainly don't think that's a call for mockery either.

I love this type of stuff. If Comme designed this way for men I'd wear it, but maybe not on public transportation...

thanks ma'am
I didn't know the word concatenation is such an infrequent appearance.
to be fair, there is this stuff, "the iconography of durer's knots and leonardo's concatenation" by a. k. coomaraswamy, and why I knew the word.
those and it could also have something to do with arabesque and grotesque patterns, labyrinthine universe and its order in chaos, etc.
