CDG FALL 2010 RTW






Pillow-form outcrops of padding placed on shoulders, hips, backs, and bodices were the essence of Rei Kawakubo’s experiments this time. In resolute defiance of conventional notions of female body enhancement, they added bulk and heft to all the places fashion avoids if it seeks to flatter and make sexy—two things that have never been part of the job description Kawakubo has accepted. We are on different terms here, forced into the field of the visual associations the designer triggers, rather than struggling to sum it up in the usual ways.

Rei Kawakubo will always, always be my favourite designer. Oh, and Happy Mother’s Day to my beautiful mother! Sorry that I’m away from home this year and can’t celebrate it with you in person! Hope you liked the gift that I had left for you!

  • p.s. and the designer has great taste in style! OH and I like ur blog tons! I’m following it for real!

  • wow! i don’t think anyone would forget! those prizes are awesome!

    but I wonder what material the last 3 models are wearing? the fabric looks soft!

  • The first line has some pretty phallic shapes, and I immaturely laughed my head off.

    I would imagine that padding in the last row would have been hard to work with.
