Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, Creative director of Comme des Garçons, showcased her Spring/Summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection during Paris Fashion Week. This season, Kawakubo saw red. She expressed love, danger, life and death; all in tones of red. It was also a statement to her views on the world around us, and a testament to how fashion has always been connected to deeper, more philosophical issues of life.
The “roses and blood” theme reflected Rei Kawakubo’s view on violence around us.
Exaggerated silhouettes created a sense of anarchy, trapped in fussy details.
