Comme des Garcon's Rei Kawakubo demonstrated her extraordinary abilities with fabric manipulation for Fall 2009. Editors suggested that she was trying to make clothing cocoons where women could hide from the financial crisis and its effects. 

This collection was visually stunning and really highlighted the designer's range and talent. Check out more of Commes des Garcon's Fall 2009 line above.

Implications - The looks in this fall collection prove that layering is the way to go when trying to stay warm. Instead of throwing on one burly coat to keep the cold away, women can throw on multiple pieces to create distinct style that not only look good but also keep them from shivering.
