COMME des GARCONS SPRING/SUMMER 2021



The spring/summer 2021 collection of Comme des Garçons is the first women’s collection in 40 years for the brand that has not been shown in Paris Fashion Week. Instead, Comme des Garçons staged the show at the brand’s headquarter in Tokyo, just like what they did earlier for the men’s collection.

It was a small show but a strong one with red lights realized in the background. The collection contained 20 undeniably special looks that no one could not and would not take their eyes off.

The word ‘dissonance’ is chosen to explain the collection as its main theme. Rei Kawakubo playfully portrays differences through a number of elements, putting them together without worrying about harmony or logic.

Playfulness and sarcasm are included in clothes through voluminous shape and form, a perfect gesture for a new normal era where we are in need of social distancing. By using plastic film to layer over clothes, it can simply become body protection in a time of the pandemic.

Kawakubo has gathered a lot of dissonant ideas to create clothes for the collection. Those ideas include mixing Disney’s Micky Mouse and Bearbrick prints with graffiti to cheer up women during this difficult time with the cuteness and innocence of animated images.

Unexpected choices of materials and fabrics for this collection, as Kawakubo believed, would bring positive energy in a way that no one would expect. Even when the mix does not look right, it brings an energy that Kawakubo wants to convey.

Different prints are being used but it’s not only that. Kawakubo brought a vast array of fabrics into the mix like on the voluminous dresses with wide structure as she put a ‘classic’ stamp on it with something to be found on couture like lace and embroidery as well as black transparent vinyl. A-line dress with folded detail is matched with transparent plastic revealing what’s underneath which is a knit top as well as some parts of the body.

One outstanding look is a long ankle-length dress with origami details all over plus details of padded fabric. Another highlight is polka dot balloon dress that looks really surreal with pleats seen from under bust through to ankle while, above the bust, it contains several red-eye prints. Overall, most of the collection does not encompass bright colors.

The collection is complete with three different styles of shoes. The first two are under a collaboration with Salomon, a French-based renowned sports equipment and shoes brand. The first style is sneakers with platform sole. The second is rounded-toe Mary Jane, something that looks like what American women wore in 1920s. And the third style is stilettos made from transparent plastic by Brazilian-based Melissa.
