    there is a great combination of morbidity and joy, lust for life in "day of the dead" (dia de los muertos, 11/1) celebrations. i always loved that, and can see it clearly in these pieces. come to think of it, the kind of emotional impact that this work has reminds me of the impact of frida kahlo's, in both the "blood and guts" and the level of technique. it seems to me to be a strong and feminine power radiating here.

    i "read" this collection as a look at the need for women to wear masks, in order to fulfill the expectations of society. look at the beautiful straightjacket in one of brian's close-ups! in another detail shot there is the subtle implication that the model's behind is exposed - it's not - but somehow kawakubo creates this illusion that speaks directly to your subconscious mind.

    i do find many of the pieces very wearable - i only wish i could wear them, or at least try them on - and the whole collection almost overwhelmingly beautiful. genius.

    god~ CDG is stunningly beautiful...
    i was quite shocked at the contrast with the SS05,
    but it works out so well. I love this brand for its constant creativity, always trying to reinvent itself!!

    simply. gorgeous.

    lol...and i'm thinking of a song called 'the happy goth'... :lol:

    i looked through the collection again and i think it is really fantastic eveningwear mostly...
    with some great separates...

    especially skirts...
    which are a serious signature for rei at this point in her career...
    *having done that whole collection which revolved completely around variations on a skirt...

    i keep trying to imagine someone wearing this to a real life function...
    you'd look like a beautiful doll imo... :heart:
    and that's a look that works for me...


    :D
