Comme des Garçons-Art of the In-Between

A few months ago during one of our staff trips to New York City, we divided exhibits to evaluate based on the end of the exhibition. Those on my team headed to The Met to review the work of Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo, who is the founder of Comme des Garçons, which is French for “like boys”, a company based in Tokyo and on the illustrious Place Vendôme. After reading a myriad of articles from the NY Times, The New York Review, USA Today, The New Yorker and Vogue, we had to examine the items of clothing that we may not need, but want to have in our closets for those moments to truly stand out. Kawakubo is the first living designer to have a solo show at The Met’s Costume Institute since 1983.

The sculptural aura of the haute-punk items are oversized, crinkled and intriguing to see, and it definitely takes a unique personality to carry-off wearing such a collection.

Here are a few articles collected during our research on the designer and exhibition.

Destination Favorites

Today my inner child was poised and ready to take flight due to inclement weather. I timed my escape from work to stay home in order to draft a few post. Photographers from Stylish Heath have been sending images of their destinations, and I have not had a moment to cipher through the media. So, this morning I settled in with a pot of coffee, a small basket of scones and a bit of time on my side to create a few posts.{Check out this stylish sunset taken by Terlene at Ala Moana Park in Oahu, Hawaii with cloud formations in the sky.

{The stylish Napoleonic rooms photographed by Tony at the Chateau Fontainebleau are absolutely indulgent…. I mean who would like to come home each night to relax in these over decorated rooms or spend the evening on the Roue de Paris, the ferris wheel that has been installed on the Place de la Concorde in Paris}

 

It has been a while since having the opportunity to read text and view photographs from everyone’s journeys and these are pictures that truly stand out…so enjoy!
