1997 Comme des GARCONS Wool Coat
This coat is a CDG collectors dream. From the 1997 fall/winter collection, a follow up to the wildly talked about, but fairly unwearable “Dress Meets Body, Body Meets Dress” also known as the bump" collection of that spring. This winter collection, Rei Kawakubo definitely toned down the drama, but kept up with her avant garde, unique design. This coat is made of a fine wool in deep blue, with accents of gorgeous alpaca that seems to be bonded to the blue wool so the edges of the patches are very precise and very sharp. There are no closures, it is designed to fall across the body loosely.
