Lou Stoppard reports on the Comme des Garcons show
Report by Lou Stoppard .
For her womenswear showing for S/S 13 Kawakubo showed no clothes as a means to highlight her conceptual narrative. She'd replaced them with wearable objects, declaring that she wanted to make something totally new, something that hadn't existed at all before. Strikingly today's menswear showing has just as many ideas, but a whole lot of great, wearable fashion to back it up.
