Junya Watanabe's collection offered a buffet of beautifully wrapped jersey fabrics in greys, blues, and blacks with a short appearance from a floral print. Besides feeling bad for the models having to have their lovely faces wrapped in gauzy fabric (not the easiest way to strut down the runway), the head/face wraps added an interesting architectural element and allowed for the focus to be completely on the clothes. The coats were the highlight for me with crisp lines and a sleeve that lended itself to a cape-like appearance. Structural divinity.
Rei Kawakubo did it again for me this season. The collection was a bit trashy, but an artistic and capitvating take on bad taste, as are most things Comme des Garcons (artistic and captivating, that is). Desconstructed ruffles, petticoats, jackets, and pretty dresses. And, more braids! I adore the hearty red coat in the first photo, so Corpse Bride.
