There are a few things you can always expect at a Comme des Garçons fashion show: a bare-bones, out-of-the-way location; folding metal chairs obscurely numbered (and rarely occupied by celebrities), and one small gesture of hospitality — wine or coffee served in small plastic cups.
What you can never anticipate is what the clothes might look like, given the mission statement of iconoclastic Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, who turns 67 this year: “Every collection has the same starting point, the same aim: to make clothes that didn’t exist before,” she says, her answers to a written questionnaire as blunt as her signature bobbed hairstyle and translated by her husband, Adrian Joffe, who is also chief executive officer of Comme des Garçons International.
