Comme des Garcons - Paris Fall 2009
(PARIS) Rei Kawakubo's runway shows are exercises in opaque storytelling. This season, her cast of characters penetrated one's unconscious so deeply that, among those who watched, cameo appearances could've been made by anybody--a French soldier circa WWI, a court jester, a floral curtain hanging at the Ritz, Alber Elbaz, a picnic in the Bois de Bourgogne in early March. No need to talk of rack action, because the show builds the mood and the foundation, but these clothes are really meant to create a story--to force even jaded show-goers to think long and hard and conjure up their own narrative. In every way, Comme des Garçons offers a transcendent experience. Happily, the stores will be full of shoppable stuff--this season as much as ever.
