No designer this season was as dark and scary as Rei Kawakubo. Returning to certain pieces and elements in her own Comme des Garçons‘ archive, Kawakubo made models’ hair look like a strange gas mask, forming holes and shapes for models to see (and hopefully to breathe).
Bauhaus and basketball were the two main inspirations of Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci this season, creating a geometric sport collection, with instant-iconic pieces to become next year’s best-sellers. In the show models’ heads were wrapped in elegant nets, echoing the urban basketball court fence behind them and creating a new Homme Fatale look.
