Rei Kawakubo has created a rather deviant look for her COMME des GARÇONS Spring 2014 Menswear collection. The clothing is dark and gothic, resembling outfits that the Joker might be seen wearing in any of the Batman movies. Black is the dominant color throughout and it is seen in the crinkled leggings, skirt-like shorts, and blazers. In addition to the distressed and destroyed element for which COMME des GARÇONS is known, the clothes also feature patchwork constructed pants and blazers that could be classified as “grunge wear” if they weren’t so well tailored. Surprisingly, color is infused into the wardrobe in the form of cartoon prints that have been fashioned into shirts, pants, and sneakers. The ironic combination of whimsical and grim details is a bit twisted, but then again, that’s the ingenuity of COMME des GARÇONS.
