DetailIconic vintage Comme des Garcons dress from the “Body Meets Dress, Dress Meets Body" collection, through which the designer intended to unify body lines with the dress. Also known as the "Lumps & Bumps collection for spring summer 1997. 

Full length fitted pull-over dress, in a medium weight woven grey and cream wool mix fabric; offering excellent stretch, as it was intended to be worn with a padded lump & bump vest under garment. Beautifully constructed in a tube style with boat neckline and sleeveless armholes of differential size.

In 20th century fashion, the natural beauty of the human body was valued above all. However, this trend placed restrictions on dressmaking. Kawakubo tried to eliminate the stagnant relationship between the human body and the clothes that limited each other's development; that is, the human body restricted the clothes, while the clothes restricted the body. Merce Cunningham (1919–2009), an eminent choreographer, was inspired by the collection to produce the dance performance "Scenario" (1997).Video Link

Rei Kawakubo continues to explore new ways of expression, and stands at the very edge of fashion language, and its relationship with culture and the arts in general.
