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:

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.
i love the look on the left; how it’s a business suit but with extra billowy sleeves.
this look was less out going compared to the other ones. the hair also reminded me of jimmy neutron.
i really wanted to touch this to see how lush and soft it was.
these neutral colored looks at the top were one of the first things that caught my attention.
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.
this was very interesting (i mean all the looks were interesting) but this was something that defied description.
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.
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!
