    Default Comme des Garcons Womenswear FW 07/08 - Paris



    After fusing women and men, now there is a fusion between women and babies. Nice, I wonder what contrived shit will be offered to explain this disaster? Come to think of it, I'd be pissed as a feminist - infantalizing women.

    BTW, my initial comment abour Rei's infantalizing old men in her menswear collection that was overshadowed by her "tributes to some London artists" is only confirmed here.

    I find the middle part of the show redeeming the baby outfits. I like the offsetting colors, and I like the coats.

    I don't like the baby thing either, especially as shown in the second pic you posted. However, I think the infantile effect comes mostly from the color palette, which is pretty hideous. I'm going to ignore the hands and lumpy textures, because they are simply not original. I'm amazed that Rei would copy so blatantly.



    I do like the shapes very much. The long clingy skirts/pants shown with the jackets and tiered tops remind me of old Comme. Very simple and young, which I can appreciate after the last two collections. If she had showed this in a different color scheme, I wouldn't mind it at all.





    I think you are right to call her out this time though....there's almost something lazy about this.

    BTW, seeing this stuff in person, both womens and mens, confirmed my initial reaction - Rei is out to infantalize her clients. The mens sizes are for children. The womens clothes looks like children's clothes as well. Meh.

    Hahahaha :-). You will like the CDG H+ coats, I think. I thought they were very pretty, although I did not like the fact that they are unlined. Let me know what size you can squeeze into.

    I love the grey outfit from the catwalk. I like the look of the longer jkt, which might work better for me than the shorter version. But I always want a short jkt, tho:-),




    I might beSS, since S is a bit too long on me, like 2 cm or 3, but still:-)




    I am fine with unlining. Which coat did you see Faust?

    The Mickey Mouse hats are entirely "infantile".



    Though I wonder if the bow knit is an homage to Schiaparelli's famous sweater?

    I saw both the grey microcheck and the black version, and I liked them both. They just looked so tiny on the hanger, I did not even bother. Barneys had some vests which literally looked like children's sizes.

    It's M on the catwalk and you could se the models hardly fasten the buttons. I am glad that both JW and Comme started making SS.




    Did you see JW Faust? Do you like it?





    I saw some CDG women stuffs here, it's ... pretty:-)and the use of stretch fabric is a surprise.

    I liked JW jackets (not the leather ones). I did not like JW womens though - too heavy. Mine and laika's reviews are in the FW Arrivals thread. I liked some CDG womens stuff, but what I liked was the stuff we've seen 100 times before, patchwork, etc... The jackets with hands looked cute, but kind of costume to wear on regular basis.

    I tried on a few of the women's jackets with stretchy inserts at the back....I am fairly sure they are not supposed to be buttoned. Even with the stretch, I found them weirdly constrictive and uncomfortable.



    The pieces I've seen from the mainline are all gorgeously and intricately made--much more impressive, construction wise, than Spring season. But for the most part, I agree with Faust. The stuff I really liked is the same stuff I like every year.



    With the exception of the leathers, what I've seen of the Junya collection so far is very pretty, just utterly impractical for me. I think much of it needs to be tried on to be appreciated. My favorite things so far have been the simplest ones, like a flowered skirt with a wired (?) hem. I am really hoping for some good knits (that aren't attached to dresses).

    Laika, my post about M size above was about the CdGH+ show. I am sorry I was not clearabout it.




    Thanks for the review:-)




    Am I right thatthe leather on JW isnot a"natural" one, but is kind of "fabricated". I don't know how tocall it, ecological, or sth similar.

    oops! Well, the women's stuff is cut very tiny, anyway. [:$]



    From what I know, the Junya jackets are made of real leather and the vests are "pleather." I haven't inspected them very closely yet, but visually, I see very little difference. It's just all very stiff and shiny.



    nqth, you should post a pic of the jacket you are considering...I would like to see. [51]
