  • White Drama Paris: Comme des Garcons Spring Favors Blow-Up Domes Over A Fashion Show

    Always a designer to go against the grain of traditional fashion and fashion shows, Rei Kawakubo has done it once again with her new Comme des Garcons spring 2012 collection, White Drama.

    Instead of having a runway show, she has decided to present her spring/summer collection as an installation in clear plastic blowup domes with quasi-monochrome mannequins in which she dramatizes life’s important events: birth, marriage, death, and transcendence.

    White Drama is about pure, ceremonial whiteness in every hue. Some of Kawakubo’s influences for this season are budding flowers, lace insets inspired by christening robes, an obi-bow belt, Holy Week processions in Seville, and layered handkerchiefs.

    I think this is the finest collection Rei Kawakubo has presented in a long time. It shows her exquisite imagination, craft, architecture, and grandiose dreams at their best. – Richard Nahem
