True, but one doesn't go to every single showroom. The decisions of which collections to look at more closely are made on little more than the same limited evidence we have here.
Anyway, I was just playing devil's advocate to have a bit of fun.
I'm with travolta, though: Rei presents her work in a way that invites intellectual response. Not every collection provokes this kind of discussion, and there's a reason for that.
It's like Andy Warhol's Brillo box in a museum versus one on a shelf at the supermarket: how something is displayed can have a controlling influence on how it is received.
Of course, that doesn't mean that we don't sometimes overdo it with the intellectualizations, and
on that one.
