Suffer for Fashion

Comme on!

When I heard about H&M’s newest designer collaboration with Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons, my first reaction was to be really, really excited. I didn’t buy anything from any of H&M’s previous collaborations, mostly because I’m a lazy bum and didn’t want to face the frenzy (and also because Roberto Cavalli’s collection looked like the cheapest, tackiest thing ever…sorry). I haven’t seen what the collection looks like, but I’m looking forward to it. Comme des Garcons isn’t a label I get to see very often, and can’t really afford much of, but I love Kawakubo because she constantly pushes boundaries and challenges the way we look at clothes. Also, Comme isn’t a label that a lot of people know, so opening day might not be as insane (although now that I think about it, Stella, Viktor & Rolf, and even Karl Lagerfeld weren’t really household names and they drew huge crowds). In any case, I’m excited to see what she can do with this collection. I hope she doesn’t sacrifice innovation or design quality to appeal to the masses (*ahem* Target *ahem*). At this point I’m still optimistic about the whole thing. Hopefully I won’t be let down.
