"Beauty is whatever anyone thinks is beautiful.” ~Rei Kawakubo
Castanet’s spring shoot we drew inspiration from anti fashion icon Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons and her upcoming retrospective at the Met’s Costume Institute.
Using a combination of vintage and modern pieces, the looks featured key elements from her collections, including items from former protoge Junya Watanabe, Chitose Abe of Sacai (former designer at CDG), and design contemporaries Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake.
