The Comme des Garçons runway showcased ‘18th Century Punk’, a time of so many revolutions, according to the designer. Of course, Rei Kawakubo is also revolutionary, concealing the body inside oversized volumes similar to samurai armour, cocoons or giant flowers made up of sumptuous floral jacquards connected with an opulence worthy of Versailles, cascades of vinyl flounces and ruffles reminiscent of the sugary confections in the film ‘Marie Antoinette’ and bondage straps. Everything was teamed with stacked black curly wigs and white sneakers with feather and fur appliqués.
