It's Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons...took me a while because I've had a ridicubusy week. But anyway, I like what Sarah Mower said about this line on Style.com:
"Excursions to the African continent have been a persistent theme in the Spring shows: surely something to do with the urge to get as far away from the West's problems as possible. Junya Watanabe has gone there, too, but on his runway there was no sense of panicked escapism. As the sound of spring birdsong twittered on the soundtrack, out came girls carrying sheaves of flowers in towering head wraps, and an instant atmosphere of sunny serenity filled the room."
My favorite fabrics at the store.My friend Chinami is a writer for Madame Figaro Japan. It is the most lovely magazine, it is so frustrating to not be able to read a thing in it. She passes me copies every month and I pour over them, mentally noting the things I'd like to ask her to translate for me which I never do. In the most recent, there's an editorial spread of some designer who I think I figured out is Comme Des Garcons has used African prints like these (on top shelf above )in their Spring line. I've always loved these prints, but they're hard to use with out looking too hippy or just wrong. So mostly I just buy them for their beauty and don't use them - although I've used some for linings. But the CDG line was gorgeous, refined and happy. I'll find online pics and post.
