All the Looks From COMME des GARÇONS' Fall/Winter 2018 Show

Rei Kawakubo displays over-the-top campiness.

For Rei Kawakubo‘s Fall/Winter 2018 show at Paris Fashion Week, the celebrated designer creates her own version of extravagant campiness – a vision that she has dubbed, COMME des GARÇONS CAMP. Although Kawakubo’s pieces often stand out as artworks walking down the runway, bystanders cannot help but wonder at times what the inspiration is behind her pieces.

For the very first time, the designer has now explained her collection via a press email. Inspired by her reading of Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay entitled, “Notes on Camp,” Kawakubo’s message explains:

“Susan Sontag wrote about a creative movement and sensibility, CAMP. I can really relate to this vision. Camp is not something horribly exaggerated, out of the ordinary, or in bad taste. This collection came out of the feeling that, on the contrary, camp is really and truly something deep and new, and represents a value that we need. For example, there are so many so-called styles such as punk that have lost their original rebel spirit today. I think camp can express something deeper, and give birth to progress.”

You can view the full presentation in the gallery above. To see more from Rei Kawakubo, don’t miss our interpretation of the icon in our mini-me fashion editorial.
