Fall 2006 Comme de Garcons Gold Set
The entire set is constructed of layers of netting - some hand painted with those fantastic gold dots and some left black. It is almost indescribable as to the cut and silhouette as it is tucked here with a seam, tacked there with a stitch, deliberately puffed there and buttons are offset, close with the seam protruding out, seams finished, seams left un-constructed ....the details are endless and stunning. This collection "contained fusions of menswear and elements culled from Victorian women's wear" It is easy to see that feel in this piece with its elaborate shape and form. The fabric is hand painted with large gold dots and the set weighs almost nothing since it is entirely constructed from netting. The skirt and jacket can literally be worn inside out - I have styled it as the tags inside dictate but you could turn either inside out and wear the opposite. A mannequin does this ensemble little justice - it needs the quirky, fabulous girl that Rei Kawakubo intended to wear it! The original price on this set at retail was almost $4000. Excellent condition
