Comme des Garçons

Paris: Rei Kawakubo showed a collection dripping with texture, pattern, and color. She draped damask overcoats and sport coats over lush, baggy corduroy trousers, and hung mariachi-style tail balls from blazer hems while attaching puffballs to oversized hoodies and shirts. True to her style, she showed unexpected materials like seersucker, and shot this cold weather collection through with spring-feeling pastel pinks, mints, and limoncello yellows, while making sure to add fall heft via heavy wool, plaid hunting coats. This show was most playful, and full of opulent materials, patterns and items, but ultimately found the perfect balance between carefree fun and cold weather responsibility. —Andrew Luecke
