WHY WE LOVE IT - COMME DES GARÇONS WRAP TOP
WHY WE LOVE IT - Dec 27, 2021
One of the genius aspects of Rei Kawakubo's work at Comme Des Garçons is it often defies easy categorization
We had difficulty giving this top a name. We settled on “wrap” but that isn’t really accurate.It’s sort of a cross between a cape and a sleeveless sweater but neither. Viewed in 360degrees, it has a rounded shape, composed of 6 sections (the way on would slice an apple) that gather at the waist. There are two slits for the arms. The design is rather simple but obviously the idea behind it was not. And that’s one of the genius aspects of Rei Kawakubo's work at Comme Des Garçons: it often defies easy categorization. This unusual, and quite frankly abstract, top is also approachable and easily wearable. And it can serve as an entry point for some of CdG’s more challenging designs.
