Comme des Garçons is designed by the amazing mind of Rei Kawakubo, who seems to suffer the pressions of the fashion system, in her last collection wanted to give vent to the urge of creating only for the increasing request of the industry.
She shown the collection in a claustrophobic space and her creations were described as 'feverishly assembled' like she felt compelled to give more to her insatiable audience.
The models worn wonderful long white haired wigs and stunning headpieces made from bits and bobs.
Since her collection seems populated with princesses in disguise, it reminds me of Donkey Skin .
This wicked fairy tale has a film adaptation: the visionary Jacques Demy's "Peau d'Ane" (1970) a pastel psychedelic story played by a Chaterine Denevue at her best and at her blondest.
Liliac fairies, Freudian kings, Blue Oompa Loompas and Talking Flowers are only few characters of this shimmering visual work.
