Rei Kawakubo presented the 2014-15 AW collection for COMME des GARCONS under the theme “Monster.” Once again, the brand challenges the concept of real clothes.
“Fear and anger beyond imagination. I wanted to express such strong emotions, which led me to the theme ‘Monster,’” explained Kawakubo. Her designs introduce designs covered with tubes resembling offal, oversized tailored jackets and tops with knitted sleeves.
Random knitting is shaped into odd-looking tops and dresses. The leggings styled with the looks introduce prints of knits with holes.
There is no telling what Kawakubo is up to. It seems as if she is heading towards a new abstract world, led by her deep emotions, which create monsters that emit beauty, ugliness and style.
