"The theme of the collection this time is MONSTER. It's not about the typical Monster you find in sci-fi and video games. The expression of the Monsters I have made has a much deeper meaning. The craziness of humanity, the fear we all have, the feeling of going beyond common sense, the absence of ordinariness, expressed by something extremely big, by something that could be ugly or beautiful. In other words, I wanted to question the established standards of beauty." Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçons.
I am seriously obsessing! Rei Kawakubo gave us living, breathing human art disguised as fashion.
What is beauty anyway? And does it have to be functional or wearable? View Collection:
