This 'Illusion' editorial for High Fashion's August issue is a motley celebration of Comme des Garçons' Fall 2009 line. Photographer Yasutomo Ebisu captures model Wiktor Hansson in decidedly masculine separates, but stylist Kazumi Horiguchi really pushes the androgyny theme by pairing the Comme des Garçons clothing with feminine headwear and makeup.

Implications - In the 'Illusion' editorial for High Fashion's August issue, Kazumi Horiguchi plays with the perceived androgynous quality of the Comme des Garçons brand. This is a great shoot and it's exciting to think about Kazumi Horiguchi's next styling, as he is an absolute genius. This editorial certainly flirts with the gender divide.
