Pure Kawakubo

The intricate artistry of Rei Kawakubo‘s designs for Comme des Garçons is brought to life in the pages of T Magazine with an evocative cover story by Paolo Roversi. The pictures shot in Roversi’s signature style and accented with special face painting and hair by Julien d’Ys, serve as a strong visual counterpoint to Suzy Menkes‘s interview with the groundbreaking designer. models Maja SalamonElodia Prieto and Ine Neefs are transformed completely in this striking set of images.

  1. only time will tell us whether Ms Kawakubo made the right move or not concerning the opening of this new store. I bet the executive guys behind this not-so-subtle move are very keen on pocketing the money of a few rich newyorkers who dare to clothe with CDG. I would never prostitute my design and work ethos for easy money, but it is not my brand that will be put IN the eye of the hurricane.

  2. Simply beautiful images by Paolo Roversi. When he uses this technique, which he’s known for but has drifted away from lately, he’s fantastic.

    …expecially with this designer and her Comme des Garcons collection.
