The Comme Des Garcons Fall Collection Features Many Deliberate Holes

Rei Kawakubo strategically placed holes throughout the Comme des Garcons Fall 2014 menswear collection.

The thoughtfulness of the placement is evident in each garment. The jackets, for instance, feature holes instead of pockets, as well as zippers that are unable to close, creating yet another "hole." Both features reveal what Style.com refers to as a "negation of utility." Holes could simply be a form a decoration for these garments, or if we're to get a little more critical in our analysis, they could be a commentary on masculinity and function. Or more specifically, the role of masculinity in contemporary society.

Overall, Kawakubo's innovative collection for Comme des Garcons is what you might call an "ace in the hole!"
