Got these photos from fashionista.com.
Before I get into my reaction to the clothes, I just want to know: Who is that sexy male model? love that mean stare he's got going on. Rawr!
I'm not crazy about the female model- her wig makes her look like a crazy Anna Wintour. But Rei Kawabuko was never into being conventional so I guess it works.
The line itself is unconventional with deconstructed jackets and shirts, large polka dots, slashes of bright colours, Lolita-esque dresses and oddly-shaped trousers (how do you describe pants that have a large piece of fabric hanging over them?)
I think that anybody who buys these clothes have to love a challenge and aren't afraid of standing out against all the simple, streamlined looks most people wear in the Fall/Winter.
I am curious to see how this line will sell compared to former collaborations. The Roberto Cavalli line was a smash because everyone loves those trashy leopard prints and Lagerfeld's chic blouses are a staple wardrobe item. Kawabuko's clothes aren't for the faint of heart.
