TAGGED AS 3D, Comme des Garçons, Fashion Week, Paper dolls, Paris, Rei Kawakubo, Structured clothing
Fashion or architecture? It is hard to define. The collection seems to be a series of fabric structures heavily influenced by architectural massing and form. They remind me of 3D versions of cut-out paper dolls – except made out of felt and without the joining tabs. Rei Kawakubo is a designer who thinks like an artist, she is constantly looking to modify our view of something. I love the iconic shapes and harsh architectural structures.
