Rei Kawakubo – Comme des Garçons

On the top of my list of things to do while we’re in New York is The Met. The special exhibit I wanted to see was “Rei Kawakubo – Comme des Garçons – Art of the In Between.” We didn’t waste any time when we got there. My mom, brother, cousin, auntie, and I went straight up stairs to the exhibit. It was beyond crowded and noisy in there. People talking and crowding around the different collections. I really loved how each collection was named, like “Child/Adult” or “Birth/Marriage/Death” and how some were more hidden. The whole room was white, so everything really stood out.

My favorite collections:

2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Unfinished-Seams
i really like how abstract the top is. i was wondering what it was made out of. this was one of the few that had unfinished seams showing.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Suits
i love the look on the left; how it’s a business suit but with extra billowy sleeves.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Rug-Robe
this look was less out going compared to the other ones. the hair also reminded me of jimmy neutron.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Carpet
i really wanted to touch this to see how lush and soft it was.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-neutrals
these neutral colored looks at the top were one of the first things that caught my attention.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Mix-Match-Fabrics
these were my absolute favorite. i loved all the different colors, patterns, and fabrics; but it all works together as one. they looked like asian warriors.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Bumpy-Dress
this was very interesting (i mean all the looks were interesting) but this was something that defied description.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-Bridal-Look
a lot of the comme des garçons forms were broad/wide but these two bridal forms were slim. i like how the flowers were tied in. there was also texture printed onto the fabrics.
2016-06-Fashion-Museum-The-Met-Comme-Des-Garcons-All-Black-Lace
this look was constantly surrounded by people. it was hard to actually see it

The Comme des Garçons gift shop had their iconic converse collab, shirts, bags, and books. I really wanted a yellow shirt but both were over $100!
