Commes des Garcons
Japanese company Commes des Garcons, founded by Rei Kawakubo in 1969, has always had a style that I have had a hard time to understand and digest. They are avantgarde and there is definitely nothing wrong with that but there are different brands of avantgarde and theirs is a bit too messy (in a lack for a better word) for my palate.
The jackets above make a blatant revisit to the 1980s with their rolled up sleeves and a peekaboo of the lining. That's fine but the trousers, even if they also give signals of a decade long gone, are something for rockstars and attention grabbing youngsters who haven't lived through it once before.
