‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between’
The designs of “Rei Kawakubo, the Japanese creator of the label Comme des Garçons,” Stephanie La Cava writes in the NYR Daily, “defy definition, and Kawakubo has never offered an easy way in. She gives no explanation for her works—which vary from large, sculptural dresses to intricate and often elaborate multi-textured pieces—and avoids traditional categorizations. In keeping with this approach, curator Andrew Bolton, in collaboration with Kawakubo, has selected nearly 150 pieces from throughout her career. These are displayed in a stark white labyrinth of alcoves.”
