    Final few.

    This is very much a personally edited selection. I'm pretty much always interested in what they do, and this is no exception. Think some of it is fantastic, with an unbridled and unmatched imagination on display. It doesn't translate into anything very elegant, but i don't suspect that it's supposed to.

    johnny, you posted pics!

    Very nice selection too--the dresses and jackets are really good.
    I really love that grey dress with the polka dots and the first white outfit in the second post.

    Also, this jacket is lovely.



    i don't think this is as strong as the fall collection (a very hard act to follow), but it has a similarly warm, comforting feeling...almost nostalgic, with all the references to previous collections. It's a collage on so many levels.

    btw, i hear that someone got a very lovely comme coat while on holiday....nice choice.

    hehe. i read zam's rallying call and thought he had a point!

    the coat was a birthday present!! it's sooo nice. i want one. the knitwear from the current women's collection is amazing too. agree about this collection not being as strong, but the more i look at it the more i find to see. the details are incredible.

    yes, i can't decide if i should save for a coat or go for some of the layered cardis (it's all selling out quickly here ). But that particular coat is one of my favorite things in the collection.

    And now there is spring to think about too!

    i really do like this collection alot, even though i know many of you think the fall collection was a masterpiece, i actually do like this one better than the fall........
    I thinkmany of the masters, Yohji, Rei, and even Karllagerfeld, are taking these wannabe upstarts like Decarnin to school.
    i was really beginning to get annoyed with Rei,........Beatles? really?
    but its works like these that reminds me why iloved her in the first place.

    There aren't any pictures of the harnesses here, but I thought they were hilarious. I never really got the whole harness thing, but this just takes it to a new level, where I don't even feel the need to understand anymore. I actually think the harnesses look good in that insane CDG sort of way.

    That's exactly what I thought when I first saw this - it's like a glorious mash-up of choice Comme collections from seasons past. Just brilliant. I would agree that it lacks the elegance of the current A/W collection, but I would also agree (with Johnny) that it doesn't need it.

    Strange, I don't find the current collection elegant at all. This is nice though, especially the jackets, especially the one like posted, and not because she is especially special.

    Yeah, I don't find this particularly elegant either. Haven't been thrilled with Comme's womenswear offerings for some time now....on the other hand I think Junya has managed to stay directionally fresh while more consistent in his presentations and clothes themselves for both genders.

    I cannot pinpoint why but i just dont like cdg anymore, i look at the shows and they have all of the ingredients i like but something in me just finds it, not even wrong just very numbing, i cant form an opinion of their collections anymore, aesthetically and even conceptually i just cant find anything very positive or negative to say. even when i go to dover street market i pick up the pieces and like to see how things are constructed and i just leave un-moved by their lines.

    i dont really understand how this happened but it has, sorry rei.

    /\ Interesting reaction - would like to know more if one day you can pinpoint the reason for your disenchantment.

    Me too. I honestly find Andrew's perspective quite valuable, and look forward to the day when he can pinpoint the reason, I think it was the choice of your words that made me laugh, nothing that Andrew said.
