Review and Pictures of Commes des Garcons 2012 Spring Summer Paris Fashion Week Runway Show

2012 Paris S/S Fashion Week: Comme des Garcons

Rei Kawakubo always marches to the beat of her own drum and her Spring collection for Comme des Garcons showed us yet another striking statement from the designer. The collection, which Kawakubo described as "white drama", displayed gowns with references to marriage and death. Dramatic, as she sent one of the models down the runway in a duchesse satin wedding dress bound at the wrists. Meanwhile, lace veiled dresses, structured skirts that resembled cages, and capes with no armholes further the restrictive theme. The headgear designed by three different artists also played a big role in the collection, showing a range of abstract texture and structure. More details from the collection below.

  • Trends: White gowns, religious references.
  • Colours: White.
  • Key Look: We loved the wrist-bound bridal look.
  • Accessories: Statement headpieces, white boots.
  • Who Would Wear It: The ultimate avant-garde woman like Daphne Guinness or Lady Gaga.
