RED Comme des Garçons: innovation, provocation
An exhibition celebrating designer Rei Kawakubo's preoccupation with 'newness'. Iconic garments by Comme des Garçons are displayed alongside sound bites from Kawakubo on the topics of experimentation and provocation.
Implementing a presentation strategy that revisits Kawakubo's staging of her autumn/winter 2001 collection, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp,
all light sources are coloured red. Incorporating large street-facing windows, this scheme casts a haunting glow over the space, the exhibits and transforms the venue's fašade. RED challenges visitors to consider how they look at fashion in exhibitions.
The exhibition is featured by AnOther Magazine, Hypebeast, MKR and Sang Bleu.
