2006 Spring/Summer Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons Calico Coat. Rent: £160/Day

£8,000.00 GBP

- +
Formed from large swathes of fabric, draped, ruched and gathered, oversized Peter Pan collar; together with a Comme des Garçons wide tartan belt, from the same collection.
The coat was look no.16 on the runway for this collection. This exact belt cannot be seen, however tartan and variations of such belts are featured heavily. Sarah Mower writes for Vogue: 'Usually you count on a Comme des Garçons show to plumb mysterious depths, but for spring, the mystery was slap-bang there on the surface. It looked like nothing so much as an homage to Vivienne Westwood's royal collections. Ringleted girls in crowns, wearing Union Jack-printed underwear and punkish tartans, proceeded up and down the runway to the strains of Coronation marches, Church of England hymns, and even, gorblimey, "Land of Hope and Glory." It was all—and this was the shock in this house of intellectual subtlety—puzzlingly literal'. Perhaps even more puzzlingly, Kawakubo dismissed the suggestion that the collection was an homage to England or Vivienne Westwood, conceding that whilst there were references to 'a lost Empire', the collection was about 'cutting without a pattern'.
