Comme des Garçons SPRING 2018 READY-TO-WEAR


Comme des Garçons is French for “like boys”. This Japanese fashion label is founded and headed by Rei Kawakubo. Comme des Garçons is based in Tokyo and also in the prestigious Place Vendôme in Paris, the city in which they show their main collections during Paris Fashion Week and Paris Men’s Fashion Week.

Rei Kawakubo

The label was started in Tokyo by Rei Kawakubo in 1969 and established as a company Comme des Garçons Co. Ltd in 1973. It is written in Japanese as コム・デ・ギャルソン (Komu de Gyaruson). It became successful in Japan in the 1970s; a menswear line was added in 1978. The year 1981 saw Comme des Garçons’s debut show in Paris. It created a splash for its predominant use of black and distressed fabrics. Throughout the 1980s, Comme des Garçons‘s clothes often were associated with a ‘distressed’ and ‘punk’ oriented style.

Creative resistance has been a theme of this season. The Kawakubo angel—a timelessly chic fashion goddess in her imposing white tweed suit—stood out as the singular persona manifested at the center of a colorful, surreal, cartoonish, kawaii toy- and computer game–referencing parade. “Multidimensional graffiti” were Kawakubo’s words on it, translated by her husband, Adrian Joffe, backstage—her spontaneous writings on the wall of the weirdness which surrounds us.

Hello Kitty and plastic kiddy novelties were piled up as neckpieces and embedded in space-princess wigs. The face and blonde tresses of a blue-eyed manga princess adorned floor-length coats. Massive crinolined ball gowns bore digital prints of the work of the 16th-century artist Arcimboldo. The artist painted surreal portraits made of vegetables and fruit. Sinister black crows appeared on steel-gray satin playsuits under sculptural jackets. Rough-hewn patchwork, spray-painted graffiti art, ruffles, and stiffly contoured red plastic raincoats got mixed up in it all.
