Comme des Garcons Fall/Winter 2013 Menswear

It's like Rei's aesthetic meets Alice in Wonderland. Those lovely pastels, and the feminine details just have me going head over heels. I honestly just want those pink shoes pictured above and that pastel green sweater with the slits in the front. So many stellar pieces in this that I honestly can't wait to see styled in editorials. With a season, as usual, full of coats and the same shit menswear has to offer, it's great to see Rei step outside of the box every season and offering something so beautiful that has so much depth to it. Tim Blanks described the show the best with the this comment: "Innocence, awkwardness, and sexual confusion shared catwalk space with a worldlier attitude and the first stirrings of sophistication." Ahh, couldn't have been said better. Completely agree with Tim's interpretation of the hair hinting at princesses and the hats also referencing youth and cartoons. This is definitely one of the highlights of the season and one of the best collections this season has to offer.
That last look with the pink shoes? FLAWLESS.
