Comme des Garçons Fall Winter 2014
Rei continues the Japanese domination of FW 14
This feels like an 80s resurgence!
“ Themed MONSTER, Kawakubo described her vision as ‘not the typical Monster you find in sci-fi and video games [but] the craziness of humanity, the fear we all have, the feeling of going beyond common sense, the absence of ordinariness, expressed by something extremely big, by something that could be ugly or beautiful.’ ”
Yohji Yamamoto AW 14
Madness, Insanity, Perfection…
From the silhouettes to the obvious business of the paintings / prints this collection sees a more frantic side of Yohji. I believe the paintings to be a collaboration with an Artist although I will update with that information later.
It’s a gorgeous collection though and certainly pairs well with the Men’s collection presented earlier this year.
Although the Women’s is the clear favorite in my mind.

Sid Neigum FW 14
Born in Alberta, trained in New York and based in Toronto, designer Sid Neigum holds stockists in New York, L.A., Hong Kong, Seoul and Toronto.
I’m really happy to see talent coming out of Canada.
Especially when it’s being recognized on an international stage

Ann Demeulemeester AW 2014
Designed by the trio - Mirjam van den Akker, Patrick Van Ommeslaeghe and Sébastien Meunier.
Feels much safer than Ann’s work but alas with the poet gone I feel we shall have to adjust.
It’s as if they are painting with her pallet and speaking with her vocabulary yet the prose is lost.
Rick Owens Women’s FW 2014
Not as much of a blowout presentation but aesthetically this is very on point.
