The Fall 2009 coats on the Comme des Garçons runway were like none I have seen before. Designer Rei Kawakubo has combined short, chest-length military jackets with fabric resembling blankets.
Fleece and other heavy fabrics in plaid and Navajo patterns flared out in triangular shapes from beneath structured, multi-pocketed, buttoned up jackets.
The look is rather strange and not at all figure-flattering. However, this Comme des Garçons collection also had the models veiled in sheer material detailed with glitter lips, pink and purple hair that looked like woolen balls, ankle socks under filmy leggings, and manly shoes with toes printed on them.
