Comme des Garçons 1977
BACK TO BLACK! THESE THREE PRE-PARIS COMME DES GARCONS CATALOGUES WERE ALL ISSUED IN
1977. THERE ARE IMAGES HERE WE
HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. THE
SHORT CROP HAIR COVER WITH THE LEISURE WEAR BLOUSON IS SO FAR AHEAD OF ITS TIME WE DON'T THINK
IT HAS EVEN HAPPENED YET!
It takes a bit of looking at this cover. It is just so surprisingly good. If the model and the hair might be considered unusual for a 1977 Japanese fashion catalogue, the jacket is astounding.
We have written about early Comme before - notably with
Comme Des Garcons 1975-82
but even that super book does not include these images.
The eye make-up is a reminder that 1977 was the year that punk broke. Rei Kawakubo ate punk for breakfast! See all three of the catalogues in the slideshow
The jacket seen again in the full outfit. Yes to the jacket. Yes to the shirt dress. Yes to the trousers and yes to the turn ups. Yes to the belt please! What is there not to like?!
We would surely remember if we had seen this big hair and beret combination before. She has the most turned down mouth ever! :(
for another great patterned dress. NB. all three of these catalogues and collections were produced in the same year. That is quite surprisingly remarkable, no?
