Comme des Garçons Spring 2014

A different song was played for each look that emerged on the runway at Comme des Garçons. Creative director, Rei Kawakubo designed very sculptural silhouettes, making her collection, interesting yet very thought provoking. Even though there wasn’t really an exact theme here, whether it was a Futuristic 4016 club, or taking a cue from Modern day 17th century, elements that were seen throughout Spring fashion week. One thing is certain that Kawakubo is looking back at her recent past, at the Comme des Garçons house.

The hula hoops and ruffles used to create structure, almost remind me of the pieces from Alexander McQueen‘s Fall 2009 collection. The one where Karlie Kloss sports a red and black printed gown, that looked practically blown up, but very Haute Couture like.

Jean Paul Gaultier Does Grease

We are going back in time! As the models happily danced down the Grease inspired runway, at by far the most major show this season.

Wearing ensembles of leather in the beginning, making me think Madonna in the 80s. To the lace and tulle ensembles, seen throughout the movie of Grease. Some of the models even sported the over-the-top super high 80s hairstyles. Thankfully no mullets involved. While the floral ensembles, channeled by Joan Smalls make me think a little bit of a 60s and 70s vibe. And the berets that Fei Fei Sun and Anais Pouliot channelled make me think the edgiest Parisian yet.

Although Gaultier gives such a fun Grease vibe, he adds a modern twist. Incorporating some playful touches using ruffles and peplum, elements seen throughout Spring fashion week. And the Metallic hues make me think 80s Flapper girl, but still just so Chic. I always love how Gaultier does something do different each season, taking inspiration from something yet so different each season, and making it into one of the best shows each season. Bravo, Jean!
