“White Drama”

The color white is often associated with weddings, especially among a  collection of all white dresses. However, Rei Kawakubo took the color and used it in a more unusual and conceptual manner. This spring collection, “White Drama”, explores the status of women without the pairing in holy matrimony.  Though her collection is filled with hidden jewels, Kawakubo translates her thoughts and concepts beautifully. Words don’t come close to scratching the surface of how alluring these pieces are. Her exceptional work is a reminder that fashion is art, a concept we often forget. She explores shapes, and their relationship to eachother. Through her manipulation of silhouettes, Kawakubo organically  modifies the original shape of the body. Sculptural sihlouttes are paired with extreme textures, emphasized through the monochromatic scheme. The surface details are extremely feminine, with the inclusion of lace, delicate flowers, tulle and bows. Yet, these opulent pieces remain deeply rooted, without screaming femininity. Finding the perfect balance between these design aspects can be very difficult, but it seems she has mastered it. At last, with the white hair and artful headpieces, Kawakubo’s work leaves a lasting memory. She leaves White Drama.
