On the Street....Silver, Comme des Chatons





Whenever you go out shooting you'll never know who you will run into!
While shooting in a new neighborhood I met Silver, an assistant to Rei Meowakubo throughout the eighties and who helped design some of her most famous deconstructed pieces.

Most people wouldn't even consider wearing such an obviously dated piece but Silver reminds us than every garment has it's correct context (while making it look completely effortless!). As we enter 2010, it is my wish that people will take more risks, worry less about seasons, and enjoy the playful side of fashion.

You had me at Meowakubo! Oh, J'Adore some of those early pieces. You are right... this black-on-white, asymmetrical look does plant this elegant, playful risk taker firmly in 1987, but who cares? The black nose pulls it all together! Thank you for "deconstructing" our preconceived notions of furshion and urging us to let loose for the new year! Another purrfect shot...You are an inspiration as always!

purfect Comme des Chatons vintage ensemble. I find any piece from the fab Rei Meowakubo to be timeless, effortless and with a good lick of saliva comes up a treat! Her makeup is superb, how does she get her ear hairs sooooo white and her nose so black? beautiful lady.
