PFW: Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Spring/Summer 2017 Collection

A truly translucent offering from CDG’s Homme Plus. 

Quite explicitly inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen classic ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’, Kawakubo utilises the Homme Plus SS17 collection as a comment on today’s society, in which most things – information predominantly – are more easily accessible than ever before.

The collection includes a range of see-through fabrics, celebrated by a range of thick plastic raincoats, vests and shirt details. A small proportion of runway looks were littered with phrases directly lifted from Andersen’s novel, including phrases like ‘The King is Naked’ and ‘Shout it out loud’ – as if Comme weren’t avant-garde enough. The remainder of the collection plays host to a range of graphic printed co-ords, featuring abnormal fish faces and exaggerated polka dot prints. To top off the collection, models paraded the runway in a very fresh CDG x Nike collaboration in which Homme Plus took over Nike’s Dunk High silhouette.
