Comme des Garçons SS09

Rei Kawakubo is one of the most original designers of our time. She is a trend-setter and a true innovator, shouting her unique point of view season after season for Comme des Garçons. For her Spring 2009 collection, Rei pondered the question "What is the future of black?" With this in mind, she set out to interpret her vision in the form of vinyl leather, hexagonal shapes that looked like deconstructed soccer balls, and cacooning skirts. I will forever love her work and put it best, "But did the collection end up answering Kawakubo's original question? That's something only she can know, and she's not one to spell out an insight. All that's certain is that she's set out yet another puzzle here that many designing eyes will be trying to figure out in seasons to come."
