Live Archives, a gallery in London, is presenting an exhibit entitled "Red Comme des Garçons: Innovation, Provocation." The exhibit is composed of Comme des Garçons pieces created between 1994 and 2012 drawn directly from Live Archives' collection.
If any designer deserves to have an exhibit dedicated to her work, it's CdG's Rei Kawakubo. The pieces will demonstrate how the designer artistically approached her silhouettes and broke down gender norms in the process. Alongside the clothing will be images, which were inspired by Comme des Garçons, by photographer James Ari King and stylist Amanda Hansson.
The exhibition is running from March 20 to March 28, with a live stream taking place on Live Archives' website today, March 19, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST. If you're in London, visit Live Archives at 81-83, Mare St. to check out the exhibit in person.
