    PARIS – Tao Kurihara has decided to end the label Tao Comme des Garçons. The last collection will be spring-summer 2011.

    I just read in a magazine that when Rei Kawakubo was asked what makes her laugh, she answered with deadpan seriousness "people falling down"

    I believe I've seen her husband say the same thing in interviews as well so there must be something to it.

    Today the new John Waters book, Role Models, is coming up in paperback in the U.S. His essay on Rei Kawakubo and his experience with wearing CDG his entire life is absolutely hilarious. A must read. It's also been reprinted in the last issue of 032C.

    I did a little googling and found out John Waters quoted RK described her work as "exercise in suffering".

    (just remembered that a japanese friend said "you always have to suffer walking in comme shoes". so it kind of "a transmission":)
