COMME DES GARÇONS

IN Paris, you’ll find ideas executed to the extreme. This evening’s Comme des Garcons collection an expression of love, played out to the most vivid and intense effect.
Everything was red, and everything came charged with roses and ribbons, scrunchies and rosettes, spliced heart helmets on heads. Rather than this being a romantic take on love, it felt enraged and aggressive – which are both equally apt and relevant attributes when it comes to the emotion.
Heart shapes were torn apart and pieced back together, represented as the organ for a skirt that seemed to pump around its wearer; and depicted as the universal hallmark symbol for prettier Valentine’s motifs of shape-pushing experimentation.
It was bonkers in that Comme way – again, an exploration into imagination and feeling, wider concepts (as we expect) than merely the practicality of wearing clothes.
