love it haruki.
when rei responded by saying it wasn't about britishness, i think she wanted to stress it wasn't solely about britian's empire (it would have been instantly simplified if she had admitted that), but it was used as a symbol or a trigger for corrupt systems that people put a lot of faith in. it's not a cynical viewpoint, on the contrary, it's a very empowered and a realistic perspective. in a way this could be called her Diposable Collection, because of it's crowns, the symbols of the british empire... the union jack and the structured jackets buried by these yielding 'natural' (as ngth put it )tartan wraps. she remains consistent because the exploration of the fleeting nature of things is the centerpiece of this collection.
