For her Fall/Winter 2020 collection, Rei Kawakubo travelled to the depths of her imagination to create a handful of looks defining COMME des GARÇONS. The Japanese designer has always been all about creating things that have never been seen before, that challenge the conventional and cause a reaction, and this season was no different.
As models paraded down the runway to a different song per look, we saw gravity-defying headpieces, exaggerated silhouettes, veils and geometric structures, bridging the worlds of sculpture and fashion. “Is it impossible to make something completely and utterly new, since we are all living in this world?” asks Kawakubo, which acted as the central inspiration behind the collection. It is impossible for the human mind to not make connections to what we know, but Kawakubo tried her hardest. Tulle, textures and logo-printed socks reigned supreme, and the Fall/Winter 2020 range was COMME des GARÇONS through and through. Exploring new and innovative ways of creating and wearing clothes, the designer added a much needed breath of fresh air to Paris Fashion Week.
