Rei Kawakubo challenges fashion with one and each of her collections and once again she has achieved her purpose. All the critics are still desperately trying to find an interpretation to her Comme des Garçons AW2012-13 show. What did she meant? What was the message? Was it a satire of nowadays fashion? The clues she gave were, as usual, minimal. "The future is two dimensions", she said.
And she offered the fashion crowd flattened big and bold silhouettes in vivid colors and megapatterns. Stiff felted pieces that seemed like stapled together. The color palette was as stunning, sharp and biting as the patterns: scarlet, bubble-gum pink, royal blue and sunshine yellow.
So, tell me, what do you read between the lines?
