I do like the blazer, the zippers that open up brings a new silhouette/interest to an otherwise outdated and typical mens item. Not a fan of the fluffy ruffles personally, even though a lot of designers were channeling Austin Powers this season. As for the masksâ€¦how enigmatic. It’s a dark show, but it keeps the eye moving, regardless of the muted color palette.
Never have holes in your clothing looked this cool! If there is one designer who can saying be termed as being “clever”, it’s Rei Kawakubo. I think it’s genius that the wholes are places where pockets would normally be and that the opening of the garment in such a way gives it a new dimension and point of interest. I loved the pieces in black with the contrasting bright colours, want now!
Very outstanding show. I love the fashion designs and actually the crazy headpieces too, but I always feel like they distract from the “real” clothing to much, I seriously can’t stop watching at these crazy thing on their hat and totally forget to take attention on the designs which is pity because they are very good!
The state of men’s fashion is tragic. “Single button – check. Wide peak lapel – check. Let’s add something weird and call it fashion.”
How about different ways to fasten, or something interesting with collars or lapels? I know it’s mostly been done over the years, but the same can be said of women’s fashion.
For goodness sake, stop making it an after-thought and try something beautiful and unique.
Just a small example… To a gallery on Friday, I wore a jacket made in India. It was rayon/silk in a neutral color. Shirt-like collar, no lapels, no buttons except one on a faux vest in black. I got lots of compliments and can envision how completely different types of things that are still “jackets” and still be different.
Love the masks made from hair. Was the light glinting through his leg hair a juxtaposition of the mask itself? An oversight on the part of the stylist who should have made him shave? A satirical statement on our current insistence on pre-pubescent physicality in adults?
