SOFT PUNK
Paris: Rei Kawakubo has often taken a punk approach to her menswear, mining the aggressive genre for references and design direction. This season, her interpretation was channeled through relaxed suiting in patterns and patchwork styled for effect with shaggy black wigs, lace-up oxfords and ankle socks. Proportions were cropped as well as voluminous — trench coats paired with mid-calf trousers and popcorn knit cardigan jackets lent a soft alternative to blazers. Genderbending details ran throughout, from floral appliqués and graphic flocking all the way to pleated skirts and tie-front blouses. As always, Comme des Garçons served up a blender of inspirations, and by merging the strident attitude of punk rock with a more feminine touch, the avant-garde label stayed on the cutting edge.—Nina Stotler
