Comme des Garçons and Noir Kei Ninomiya Fall 2021-2022. Paris Fashion Week (Let’s organize this way). Review by RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
“Disorder” is the not the only one word we can use to describe the Fashion Federations worldwide and their fashion schedules to present new collections. Since Fashion Federation in USA (CFDA) announced Runway360 and blurred New York Fashion Week schedule, with addition that designers may present their collections as they please without respecting the scheduled time or season. All fashion weeks became digital, so “no harm, no foul”, and misconduct of this decision should be excused because it has not caused damage. or as it seems.
Many designers today present their collections whatever they want, and not only in New York. We are receiving every day tons of press-releases and collections in absolutely chaotic way, as if we (all media) suppose to manage the seasons, cities, and organize this mess. And it is finally became very noticeable that public long time ago lost an interest in fashion designers and fashion labels (not fashion). And with influencers “staying home” in their undies, which they keep showing without success on their instagram, public still follows and relies on media, a source of information, to see what is happening with new seasons, trends and new designers.
Designers who usually present in Paris and Milan follow this new disorganized tendency. After Paris Fashion Week is long passed, according to the schedule at least, Comme des Garçons and Noir Kei Ninomiya Japanese fashion brands, founded in Paris France, decided to show. These brands are related.
Comme des Garçons is a Japanese fashion label founded and headed by Rei Kawakubo in Paris. The label began in 1969 and the company was founded in 1973. Kei Ninomiya became an heir to the style of Rei Kawakubo, his mentor. He continues to formulate his own aesthetic through experimenting with garments, creating elegant pieces in an avant-garde style. He showed his first collection during Paris Fashion Week couple of years ago.
Rei Kawakubo showed “Landscape of Shadows” in black and white, and Kei Ninomiya showed “Metal Couture” (well… in fact, Plastic) also in black and white.
Designer Kei Ninomiya hosted a real show. Press-release didn’t say where exactly this show took place, as well as the social media networks of the designer, who keeps instead of his web-site a page from BOF (Business Of Fashion). So we can only assume this show took place in Tokyo. But Paris and Tokyo fashion weeks are long past, and in this total difunctional disorder, the time when designers show wherever they want, let’s assume and pin this show to Paris Fashion Week schedule.
Both collections present an artistic creative imagination of the designers, in support of the marketing success of sneakers and ti-shirts. The way to do it…
