Met Gala Looks 2017: Rei Kawakubo and Commes des Garcons

Rei Kuwakubo
Hello hello! It’s the first Monday of May, y’all. So, you know what that means?

The Annual Met Gala has arrived. Christians have Easter. The (non-fashion) gays have Pride. Texans have the Rodeo. And the East Coast and Fashion’s elite have The Met Gala AKA The Costume Institue Gala AKA The Met Ball.

I always love the themes. This year’s theme honors a living legend: Rei Kuwakubo and her design house, Comme des Garçons.

Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester and Helmut Lang all name Rei Kuwakubo as an inspiration. And designers such as Junya Watanabe and Tao Kurihara owe their career to her. 

Perhaps because of her lack of formal fashion design education, her clothes are innovative, though, she told The New Yorker “I never intended to start a revolution.”

Start a revolution she did. And, the fashion world is forever thankful for it.

This was a nasty dress code, right? Easily costume-y, yet easily overly wearable and pedestrian. And, why are men boxed into suits to look expensive? Wear womenswear if you have to lol.

It was really hard to narrow it down to my top looks of the night.

I include my favorite suits, because… it’s all I had to choose from.

Just drink in all the clothes
