Inspiration // Rei’s Gold Wigs

Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons stays light years ahead of the masses. Her gilded glittery sequin wigs of fall 2011 still inspire me now. Each time I think of these wigs I also recall the genius of the half boy, half girl garments in that collection (where elements of male and female were literally chopped in her typical deconstructive way and pieced together).
Sometimes it takes compelling surreal beauty that borders on the mythic to drive a point home. I guess the gold wigs could be male or female. In a Narnia-esque world with half male, half female beings.
