Comme des Garçons Fall 2009

Did Rei Kawakubo reach out into the future, beyond the eons  and into another heavenly body and peel these garments off the back of its inhabitants? Whoa!
How often do we ever see something so unlike anything in our own dimension? Not often! Lucky us!
Even luckier, style.com has provided a portal into the magic world of Comme des Garcons this season with 116 detail shots! Wow!

Epic. I absolutely love the shoes, especially the ones with the toes painted on! I also enjoy the use of textures and shapes. Beautiful.

i love how everything seems so very protective of the wearer and yet they look so comfy, light and ethereal.. i may not be able to pull off wearing this.. but they are definitely a sight to see.. :-)

oh and the shoes!!!! i want the shoes.

I LOVE how you put it: "Did Rei Kawakubo reach out into the future, beyond the eons and into another heavenly body and peel these garments off the back of its inhabitants?" I couldn't have said it better. And BLASPHEMY: But, I love the shoes so much and they look totally easy to d.i.y. =) I'm going to be walking around with some Comme des Garcons shoe toes soon!

Rei Kawakubo is truly genius! Loved all the sheer! I'm so so jealous of your incredible sheer/nude CDG skirt you wore in the latest outfit post. DIVINE!

Photo of naboonies

love the dreamy sheer fabrics!

Photo of Rebecca

I love some of it (the victorian style garments) and loathe some of it ... still it is very interesting.

i love the fabrics color..

Photo of gennie

as soon as i saw this show I knew you'd be obsessed!! hehe. God those exotic skin brogues are insaaane. rare to find a flat comfy shoe that would trump the beauty of sky-high heels!!

Photo of miranda**

i liked this collection as well.. the color palette was exceptional; blushes, cream, army green..and those coats! and shoes! and sheer dresses and skirts :) just heavenly

Photo of Prêt-à-Porter P

maybe overall not my thing, but i totally see this for you!

Photo of Ashley

So incredible, I hadn't seen these detailed shots yet. Thanks so much for posting them! I can't believe I have 116 to go through before I can sleep tonight lol!


Photo of arline Jernigan

This gives me the wants.

Photo of Sabina

the sheer pieces are incredible, feels like a fairytale!

Photo of Heleen

gotta love those shoes with the toes painted on - génialll

Photo of lis

I heart all the wool jackets....the craftsmanship and design is breathtaking!

Photo of Laura

i wasn't mad on this collection really....
some of it was lovely though

Photo of rose

beautiful. rei pushes the boundaries which influence so many other more "easy wear" designers. without her and others like her wouldn't fashion be just that bit more ordinary! a true artist.

Photo of Zoe

Hot damn. This collection is amazing. I love the one shot of the sweater with the knit sticking out.

Photo of joy

oh wow, i love the gauze!

Photo of Nicole

It's nice to see some flat shoes for a change! As much as I love heels, they just aren't reasonable for those who are at or above model height and walk an hour or more a day. I might have to DIY some of the layered skirts and outlined wool jackets.

Photo of Isa

so unusual, I love it.
although the sight of this backhead freaks me out a little..

and I really need to say, looking at your site, you´re such a doll!
you´ve got that perfect hair and face AND a sea of shoes, can it get any better?


Photo of Katrina

I love the shoes so much! This is like nothing I have ever seen before. Thanks so much for sharing.

Photo of avant-garde ephemera

I haven't been so excited about a cdg collection in ever!


Photo of cassiopeia

the veils are inspired and the shoes are rad! loving all that agressive tulle hehe.



Photo of Jane Jiang

So luminous! j'adore.

Now I'm totally going to make a ruffle skirt with sheer overlay. Can't wait to experiment with silhouettes for that!

Photo of madeleine

AHhhhhh. i how absolutely adore Comme les garcons!
this collection, like all others, is absolutely exquisite(spelling?)!
i am in love with the thirteenth look- that coat is amazing.

Photo of Amelia Arsenic

I think I love the hair and makeup the most..

Photo of avenue Mode

Photo of anna

Photo of Ayesha
