Show Report: Comme des Garçons Spring/Summer 2012

Comme des Garçons shows are unlike any others, due to their original concepts and elegant execution. This season sees Rei Kawakubo look to the Victorian bride for inspiration, offering up a purely white collection featuring full skirts, frock coats and lace slips beneath extravagant wigs and headpieces. Exaggeratedly long bell sleeves, exposed crinoline frames and oversized bows add to the sense of avant-garde artistry, while piled floral cocoons that encase the head and neck will appeal only to the most adventurous of fashion followers.
