PARIS — Rei Kawakubo is channeling Sixties fashion innovator Rudi Gernreich this season. Teaming up with Peggy Moffitt, the late designer’s muse, favorite model and the keeper of his archive and fashion legacy, Kawakubo is reprising or reinterpreting Gernreich’s iconoclastic designs for Comme des Garçons, among them the topless swimsuit from 1964, shown here. The first photo of the original suit appeared in WWD. For more on Kawakubo’s collaborations, see photospread The Kawakubo Connection.
