Paris: Rei Kawakubo experimented with addition and subtraction this season; suit jackets featured either large cutouts or attached vest-like layers. Trouser legs were wide and fluid, while knee-length culottes were an unexpected option, given the season. The playful Comme des Garçon quirk was also present, showing up in the form of bright pops of color, an eclectic mix of patterns and densely-applied ruffles. — Anna Jane Davis
