Roving Reporter : Comme des Garcons

Comme des Garcons (CdG) is always a flight of fancy. Exaggerated silhouettes were played out in a host of delicious neutral tones. Sheer silk chiffon and organza were blended with quilted silk and brocades to create stunning coats and coat dresses.

Plaid has been suffering a decline overall, but has actually grown in popularity in Asia. Though hardcore devotees (such as Westwood) still use plaid it was great to see CdG play with the traditional fabric. They create beautifully draped pieces that worked really well with the depth of the tartan patterns. Trousers took on a legging form and looked almost brocade like. Rich and steeped in history this was an innovative and fun collection. The cute cropped trenches were a particular favourite.

Those that weren't of the legging variety, were true to form, CdG, wide legged, ankle skimmers. This overall 'baggy' silhouette saw CdG break all the rules with over sized tops and trousers teamed together.

A more wearable than usual CdG collection. Love it
