Minimal Jekyll: Comme des Garçons SS’16

April 28, 2016

Asymmetric textures meet neutral palettes to create idiosyncratic shapes and loose silhouettes. Simple aesthetics align with complicated structures to generate a unique personal style and sense of self for the wearer. Rei Kawakubo cited witches as her inspiration as velvet is embedded into the collection to create striking shapes. Enchantresses should have no fear when they embody the Comme des Garçons rule.

Comme Des Garcons Pleated Dress

The Pleated Dress has details for days and an easy back zipper closure for access. Soft to the touch, it is part wool, cotton, and polyester. Its minimalist décor makes it an essential piece for wardrobes everywhere. There is something for everyone whether people choose to pair it with a white blouse, sneakers, or dress it up with accessories.

Cara Delevingne comes to mind with this Cropped Jacket. Structured frills makes it a cool and sleek item that stands on its own. Perfect for maxi skirts and or smoking trousers, it can be worn at the office on a casual day to add boldness to the day. Rings are not optional for an outfit such as this.

Comme Des Garcons Faux Fur Dress

Furs are an unusual addition to the Comme des Garçons brand as this Faux Fur Dress produces elegant and astute characteristics. The neckline is adorned with sheer and the fur is made into ruffled shapes to produce beautiful lines. It might as well be Audrey Hepburn gone punk.

Cropped has become Rei Kawakubo’s game for this collection as these black Cropped Cardigans provide a subtle sexiness to the clean and crisp girl. Minimalism and classic shapes define Comme des Garçons.
