sweet. this is very mature leisure, how i imagine hugh hefner would dress if he actually decided to act his age with dignity.

double breasted overcoat in beige wool is handsome and i love the colors and levels of proportion in post 18 2nd down.

review from style.com:

PARIS, January 21, 2011

By Tim Blanks

Imagine the final fashion show on the final night of western civilization. Rei Kawakubo had the most appropriate word for it: "Decadence." She showed a collection that literally piled reference on reference like a mad last gasp, starting with the little poodle-y wig plopped on top of each model's head. Kawakubo made some pretty incongruous connections: between denim and dense jacquard, between a U2 tee and a Lurex-threaded cutaway jacket, between tuxedos and pajamas, and on a bigger stage, between diametrically opposed cultures like Japan and China. That was the brocade-and-complex-pant subtext. And yet the shabby, silken languor of the clothes also put you in mind of palazzo-panted cocktails on the terrace of Lucille Ball's home in Beverly Hills on a lazy Sunday afternoon. In other words, the collection embraced a multitude of alternate realities.

That has always been Kawakubo's ineffable genius. Here, she mushed the propriety of Edwardian England together with the sparkly tack of Vegas-as-mammon, then mixed in a handful of disciplinary mid-calf felted military coats. It made for a typically obtuse vision of cultural apocalypse. But there's an irresistible conviction to her vision. As Elvis, the godhead of another strong-willed hybrid of sane and crazy, might opine from on high: "I can't help falling in love with you."

could anybody post/ find detail pictures?

i think it is a fantastic collection, so complex, full of detail, beautiful colours, patterns, references. once again she excelled herself, progressed cuts and design approach. probable it is my favorite collection since a/w 09. i love everything of it!

i love so much of this, but it surprises me how some can praise this collection because it birthed from the creative loins of rei kawakubo, but decried the very similar collection haider ackermann put forward in this vein last year. there's a double standard here somewhere.

you know rei very good actually. your assumption may not be right for the homme plus, but for the shirt line!
i just saw photos... she showed shirts with the union flag embroidered hugely on the back, front or on the side arm...

After I looked at the shirt collection...I see more of a Russian influence...notsomuch, British.

Many of the graphics and squares in primary colors..look very much like those Russian posters from the 20's/30's/40'. There is a particular name for the influence...bt it escapes my mind at the moment.
