    Epic. I absolutely love the shoes, especially the ones with the toes painted on! I also enjoy the use of textures and shapes. Beautiful.

    this collection is so surreal! love.

  7. Valentine says:

    i love how everything seems so very protective of the wearer and yet they look so comfy, light and ethereal.. i may not be able to pull off wearing this.. but they are definitely a sight to see.. :-)
    oh and the shoes!!!! i want the shoes.

  8. Farren says:

    I LOVE how you put it: “Did Rei Kawakubo reach out into the future, beyond the eons and into another heavenly body and peel these garments off the back of its inhabitants?” I couldn’t have said it better. And BLASPHEMY: But, I love the shoes so much and they look totally easy to d.i.y. =) I’m going to be walking around with some Comme des Garcons shoe toes soon!

  9. Brigadeiro says:

    Rei Kawakubo is truly genius! Loved all the sheer! I’m so so jealous of your incredible sheer/nude CDG skirt you wore in the latest outfit post. DIVINE!

  10. naboonies says:

    love the dreamy sheer fabrics!

  11. Rebecca says:

    I love some of it (the victorian style garments) and loathe some of it … still it is very interesting.

  12. youbi ng says:

    i love the fabrics color..

  13. gennie says:

    as soon as i saw this show I knew you’d be obsessed!! hehe. God those exotic skin brogues are insaaane. rare to find a flat comfy shoe that would trump the beauty of sky-high heels!!

  14. miranda** says:

    i liked this collection as well.. the color palette was exceptional; blushes, cream, army green..and those coats! and shoes! and sheer dresses and skirts :) just heavenly

  15. maybe overall not my thing, but i totally see this for you!

  16. Ashley says:

    So incredible, I hadn’t seen these detailed shots yet. Thanks so much for posting them! I can’t believe I have 116 to go through before I can sleep tonight lol!

  17. This gives me the wants.

  18. Sabina says:

    the sheer pieces are incredible, feels like a fairytale!

  19. Heleen says:

    gotta love those shoes with the toes painted on – génialll

  20. lis says:

    I heart all the wool jackets….the craftsmanship and design is breathtaking!

  21. Laura says:

    i wasn’t mad on this collection really….
    some of it was lovely though

  22. rose says:

    beautiful. rei pushes the boundaries which influence so many other more “easy wear” designers. without her and others like her wouldn’t fashion be just that bit more ordinary! a true artist.

  23. Zoe says:

    Hot damn. This collection is amazing. I love the one shot of the sweater with the knit sticking out.

  24. joy says:

    oh wow, i love the gauze!

  25. Nicole says:

    It’s nice to see some flat shoes for a change! As much as I love heels, they just aren’t reasonable for those who are at or above model height and walk an hour or more a day. I might have to DIY some of the layered skirts and outlined wool jackets.

  26. Isa says:

    so unusual, I love it.
    although the sight of this backhead freaks me out a little..
    and I really need to say, looking at your site, you´re such a doll!
    you´ve got that perfect hair and face AND a sea of shoes, can it get any better?

  27. Katrina says:

    I love the shoes so much! This is like nothing I have ever seen before. Thanks so much for sharing.

  28. I haven’t been so excited about a cdg collection in ever!

  29. cassiopeia says:

    the veils are inspired and the shoes are rad! loving all that agressive tulle hehe.

  30. Jane Jiang says:

    So luminous! j’adore.
    Now I’m totally going to make a ruffle skirt with sheer overlay. Can’t wait to experiment with silhouettes for that!

  31. madeleine says:

    AHhhhhh. i how absolutely adore Comme les garcons!
    this collection, like all others, is absolutely exquisite(spelling?)!
    i am in love with the thirteenth look- that coat is amazing.

  32. I think I love the hair and makeup the most..

  33. avenue Mode says:

    Love this brand!!

  34. anna says:

    That’s amazing!
    especially the first one, i love the.. well.. lets call it a jacket. It gives me a fairytale feeling.

  35. Ayesha says:

    oh goodness! the pastels, the sheer, the shoes. All so beautiful! Like fashionable candy floss!

  36. Ziling says:

    Very inspirational!!!

  37. Anika says:

    I love the ‘out-there’ness; what an incredible set of shots.
    This is fashion that’s not functional but is definitely inspirational.
    Thanks for sharing :)
