Rei Kawakubo offers an elaborate collection for Comme des Garçons this Autumn/Winter 15. A monochromatic lineup of bundles, bows and lace and more bows. 

Clothing was layered and hidden under bulbous duvet bundles, the volumes of which played into the production of the presentation, which saw the models pause, and turn to the side, looking directly at each other, to allow them to pass each other. A poignant, slower pace to many other shows this Paris Fashion Week. Touching, yes, but one also thinks, plainly necessary. Veils covered faces and sent mixed messages of a bride's modesty and a widow's grief. Take a full look at the collection in the gallery below:
