Detail: Iconic 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. 

This piece is a shirt dress with front zip from collar to hip level. Medium weight woven gabardine fabric - no stretch. Cape sleeve construction. Asymmetrical seamed panels to front and back enabling the dress to be worn in several different ways. This dress would have been worn with a lump & bump vest under garment

 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.
