Comme Des Garcons

The collection

Playful takes on classic menswear are designer Rei Kawakubo’s stock-in-trade and this season was little different. Donegals, tweeds and pinstriped flannels were clashed with quirky panelling from animal prints to tartan. It was a parody on the season’s leaning to tradition with pops of bright colour shoehorned in for good measure, almost as if Kawakubo knew they would be standout elements in this sombre season.

Key items

In terms of silhouette the collection flipped from slimmed down jacketing to wide trousers and even flapping skirts while the knitwear pooled references from UK tradition with its Argylle patterns and US preppy looks with collegiate stripes.
