Creative Highlight of Paris Fashionweek
When Rei Kawakubo showed her first Comme des Garçons collection in 1981 in Paris it was a creative sensation based on the artist´s preference for art, design minimalism and the non-color black. 31 years later Rei Kawakubo is still one of the leading designers from Japan and the basis of her success remains the perfect match of art and fashion.
Now when most of the F/W 12 designer collections are based on black It is Kawakubo who surprises with some bright new colors, flower prints, Yayoi Kasama´s dots and opulent forms, all seen in her new Autumn line which made it probably the most creative one seen from an artistic view. And of course we definitely like it.
Thus we recommend to see the the runway show in total by clicking on the image below and we are sure you´ll get some creative inspiration too.
Since Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto presented the first Comme des Garcons collection in Paris in 1981 nearly 30 years have gone. During this time both created their own brands and had massive creative influence on the European and Global Fashion world. Rei´s former protégé Junya Watanabe followed their success by creating his own label debuting in 1992 in Paris. This year the big 3 Japanese Classics presented their collections in their unique style. While Rei continued her artistic black and white look and sent out a model wearing three jackets at once, Junya showed stripes with gentle blue while Yohji added some lyric romanticism with beautiful colored dresses in yellow, blue and pink dye print dotted with stars. Once again a Japanese inspiration for all of us for next Spring.
