    I don't like the skulls either. not only it is overdone, I never got the appeal from that look. But aside from that. I like the black and white collection. Typical CDG, with nice shirts and blazers. Definitely looking forward to getting one of those blazers.

    I like Rei when she is anti. First of all, I like the fact that she presented a really dark spring collection. Both in theme, and choice of color palette (black, black, black, white and a little red). Second, I think the use of skull motives is very conscious. I think the general apprehension of the 'skull' as a symbol, is that it's not provoking, but pretty childish, considered bad taste and maybe most of all, it has been used as a graphic symbol in the clothing industry for a long time now and it has become an enormous cliche. I think Rei was aware of this when she started out.

    Personally, I think the collection was interesting. I can not see myself buying any of those obvious skull motives in the future, but maybe the little more subtle and obscure ones. The 'Comme des Garcons' vibe was very tangible, no doubt. I don't think she creates anything new though. Regarding cuts and choice of garments, I think all of this stuff is pretty standard for being Comme des Garcons. Skirts, 'inside prints', checkerboard prints, dropped crotch, cropped trousers, shorts over trousers, the pea coat jacket and so on. I have seen all of this before. It's not exactly innovative anymore, and it does not make any sense with her core value "never repeat", but I don't mind, I think it's nice. Showing skirts on the runway is still provoking, maybe not in the fashion world, but in the real world. Which she affects.

    Good collection. I could have preferred just a little more subtlety in her 'post-apocalyptic' message. Anyway, I think, whatever she makes, she makes it her own. And being subtle is not being anti.

    Stellar. Don't care for the skulls but love the jackets and shirts and of course the black and white. Definitely see the shorts in my life.

    This is a very anti-fashion collection, good observation; then again pretty much all H+ is. However I can't say I'm too thrilled about this, even the leather blazers failed to win me over. Doesn't feel very fresh, other than some new prints and patterns I feel like i've seen bits and pieces of this over the past few years, it is just all coming into a mixtape here. The past 2 shows were more directional from Rei, for what it's worth.

    No, no, it's Rei, and according to her when SHE does it, it's good. Johnny will be all over this.

    I take it you are not in Paris right now. Everyone is wearing black here. It's a disease.

    heh I dunno if it's something in the air, but as of this week I'm starting to find black a bit stale as well.

    +1, there are some great classic H+ looks, wrinkled blazers with toffee buttons worn with drop crotch shorts and skirts, but it's the same formula from the last few seasons. What's up with the skulls..
    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.

    I think some of the plain suits and shirts with skulls are beautiful. I haven't bought anything yet, but I'll be visiting London in a month's time. It'll be interesting to see what DSM has to offer.
