Oh, Comme All Ye Faithful

Comme des Garcons creates an impression that seems to endorse shabbiness and eschewing the tradional beauty being sought in European clothes. The clothes take their final form and movement causes them to acquire further unexpected shapes only when they are worn. The wearer is enticed by its intellectual playfulness. Rei Kawakubo's approach of reducing everything to zero and attempting to create in a completely new way ensures an aesthetic that is recognized as futuristic and avant-garde. Comme des Garcons' army of faithfuls will always know that they will get something new and different all the time. So they keep coming back for more.
I've been thrifting for the longest time but this has only been the 3rd time I found a CdG piece from the main collection. It looks very special and I suspect from a collection in the 80's. I can't wait to wear it to a special event. The way it was constructed and pieced together, and the nylon, silk and cotton fabric used are just divine.
