Comme des Garcons
What can we even say. These pieces are Surrealist and automatic and sculptural and Brancusian and Jouve-ian.
Here is what Sarah Mower of Vogue has to say,
“So, what you see here resembles something nearer a parade of experimental art pieces than a fashion show. Even the sequencing interrupted and defied the normal procedures involved in “reading” a fashion show. Each outfit came out accompanied by its own signature tune—classical music, the sound of a crackling fire, a snatch of a Fred Astaire movie sound track, among others—which underlined the fact that each one had been made up on its own. So the usual critic’s activity of detecting narrative clues was swiftly rendered redundant. ”
Comme des Garcons is the future.
(There is also an element of being trapped or released? The soft cages, which is a contradiction but also very metaphoric. Are barriers can easily be broken but they lock us in? The woman being caged or ballooning out with emotion?)
