COMME des GARÇONS
Broken Bride Ensemble
COMME des GARÇONS broken bride ensemble from the 2005 Autumn/Winter collection. The jacket features a notched lapel and full length sleeves. The jacket is cut like a regular tailored jacket from the back but from the front it’s a collection of different bridal elements fused together including panels of printed silk fabric, crushed velvet fabric, lacework and ruffles. The skirt features side zip fastening, asymmetric hem, triangular panels of white sheer fabric at each side of the hem, ivory coloured silk fabric and panels of layered ruffle trimming that wind around the skirt with small cut-outs in-between each panel.

Designer — Rei Kawakubo, founder and creative director of COMME des GARÇONS, is arguably the most influential designer of all time. A designer with no formal training who marches to the beat of her own drum. Celebrated as creator of the deconstructed and uniform black looks in the early 80′s now synonymous with high end fashion. Never wanting to remain stagnant, she added to her colour palette and has been the originator of many a trend, always staying ahead of her contemporaries. Impossible to sum up the influence Kawakubo has had on fashion today in a single paragraph!
