Paris Men’s SS15: Rebel Punk Meets Rugged War With Comme des Garçons

By Katie Chen

July 8, 2014

More than a fashion statement, Comme des Garçons’ spring/summer 2015 men’s collection is an anti-war statement on our society. Carnal animal prints and magnified mesh sweaters are paired with military-style suits and pops of color in the cuffs. Founder and Designer Rei Kawakubo uses geometric, clean-cut panels of bold leopard print to combine an opposing austere, yet wild sentiment.

The line mainly features suits with baggy shorts in regular pin striping in various neutral colors. Sideways pockets and suspenders outside of the suit jacket defy the norm despite the suits classic fabrics and materials. The collection’s standout piece was the crakow shoe, which is defined by its exaggerated pointed toe called a poulaine.

In an effort to make a political statement, various suits are painted with terse statements such as, “soldier of peace,” and, “Anything war can do, peace can do better.” Kawakubo wanted to express her commentary on more than just war, but violence in our society in general.
