Comme des Garçons at the court of Elizabeth I

Rei Kawakubo describes for Comme des Garçons a story that takes its cue from the book by Virginia Wolf, Orlando, set in the Elizabethan period

You are right even when you are wrong. This is what the followers of Comme des Garçons claim, when Rei Kawakubo, founder and creative soul of the Japanese brand, pushes a little too much on the acceleration of experimentation. Often it happens that the desire to go beyond the standard vision of a wardrobe takes the hand, giving life to sculptures that walk, enigmas of style not at all easy to decode. However, for Spring-Summer 2020, the problem does not exist, since the show is a crescendo of 100% Comme des Garçons, but with a touch of lightness. Which always means important volumes, overlaps, egg-shapes designed to embrace the body, which remains somewhat legible. And opulent fabrics, including flowered brocades, lace, feathers and embroidery, a tribute to the court of Elizabeth I, as Virginia Wolf imagined in Orlando. They will always be in very few to wear one of those pieces, designed more to convey a statement than a product to sell. And the message, this round, puts you in a good mood.
