Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Digging deep to reveal the monster within us, whether that be a creative monster or one that’s a bit more creepy, was the theme for Rei Kawakubo’s latest Comme Des Garçons collection for Paris Fashion Week. Each and every piece for the designer’s fall/winter 2014-15 debut was heavy on knitwear, and even heavier on shapes and volume.
Most of the garments were circular or flatbed knits, and are meant to be worn rather uniquely, as some of the models displayed pillowy knitwear around their torsos, constraining their arms, or even covering their eyes.
Kawakubo played up layering looks with multiple cardigan-like sweaters piled on top of one another, or knotted capes and ponchos seemingly squishy and soft to the touch in mostly dark black and midnight blue. Thanks to Kawakubo, dressing for comfort never appeared to be so chic, nor more artistic.
