Maybe she reads fashion blogs and is telling us to shut up about those annoying blazers. Maybe she despises us. WAIT. no. must.think.happy.thoughts.*TWITCH.*
Oh right, Comme. Ahem.
Most of the rainbow's colors were well-represented, without being a technicolor cluster of grossfest. Prints, too. Lots of polka dots, the Comme des Garcons specialty, of course...
Beautiful black pieces, beautiful white pieces...sherbet hair that reminds me of SS '96...
Harnesses to balance out the very exposing, vulnerable nightgown-esque dresses.
It seems like the majority of labels suffering due to the economy (which is...all of them) have either been little-by-little letting it get the better of their creativity, or are trying to fool us into thinking they're ~totes chill by presenting a collection where the quality lies in the styling, setting, or loudness of the show's music as opposed to the...let's see, what was the point of Fashion Week again? Oh, right, clothes. How unexpected that Comme des Garcons -- usually, a reasonably dark label -- is of the only brands to show a mildly humorous (read: not meaning gimmicky or stupidly ironic) collection this season. Even if this wasn't the collection's intention, the patch work-y tops and off-white, look-like-they-got-pulled-out-from-the-attic dresses* make me want to use the recession as an opportunity to be more creative and not an excuse to resort to the easiest ideas. WHOA, whoa, guys, Comme des Garcons was INSPIRING for the billionth time?! How unexpected! Seriously though, the time has come to deflate the Strong Shoulder. Unless it's made out of leather steel, of course.
*which will look SO RAD with the yohji attic dresses!
