PARIS — A iconoclast in the fashion world, Rei Kawakubo is often referred to as the “designer’s designer.”
She’s also proving to be a formidable co-designer. WWD has learned Kawakubo is teaming up with her protégé, Junya Watanabe, to design Comme des Garçons Homme, the Japanese firm’s principal and most commercial men’s collection, which is sold in some 80 stores in Japan and accounts for about a fifth of the house’s turnover.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
