The Comme des Garcons Spring 2013 collection embraced compression as designer Rei Kawakubo created pieces of distinct avant-garde aestheticism.
Each garment was a complex multi-layered piece that almost scrunched different pieces of fabric. This cohesive motif was prominent throughout the entire ready-to-wear collection and made for detailing that made this Spring 2013 show bold and theatrical. Each look was complemented by the model's long white locks, and over-the-top headpieces that stayed true to Kawakubo's "crush" ethos for this season.
Theatrics were taken into account in all aspects of this runway show, even tempo. The models strutted in a painstakingly slow manner at first, then proceeded to do quick trots only to finally slow down again for the finale. With such fantastic detailing and boundary-pushing garments, the Comme des Garcons Spring 2013 collection was a smashing success.
