"Landscape of Shadows" Rei Kawakubo's Fall/Winter 2021 women's collection
Reading time 2 minutes

From a need and a reflection by Rei Kawakubo on the fuition of information in our days comes "Landscape of Shadows," the Fall Winter 2021 women's collection by Comme des Garçons. "Between the incessant overflow of various things, the deluge of colors, the inundation of sounds and information ..." says Rei Kawakubo: "... I needed to take a breath in the monochromatic serenity." clearly, it is the black and white color. Much more than two simple neutral shades for the Japanese designer, creative director of Comme des Garçons and founder of Dover Street Market. On the musical pieces of White Stains / Koenraad Impens, the clothes and silhouettes are structured as if they were the abstract expressionist Franz Kline paintings. The saturated colors disappear to make room for violent black and white contrasts. Julien D'Ys' architectural hairstyles blend with the headpieces of Ibrahim Kamara, Dazed's designer and editor in chief who worked closely with Kawakubo to create the hats for the collection.
