Comme des Garçons Fall 2013 - PFW

"To say this collection is complex is something of an understatement. Today, at the metal workshop in which it was shown, there was an equal sense of intense, detailed labor in what Kawakubo produced. The catwalk was tight, compact, with the audience brought close to be able to see the phenomenal quality of this clothing. There were things here that might at first appear to be mere decoration—the cascading swatches of fabric; the rosettes; the bows; the thick, serpentine, and biomorphic shapes; the rounded, flounced Belle Époque bustles at the back of some of the trousers—but in fact, they were all built into the very nature of these clothes. The pattern cutting made every element integral to the tailoring of what loosely, and reductively, might be described as "suits"—the infinity of tailoring, indeed." -
