The French fashion curator and critic Olivier Saillard opened the Comme des Garçons “White Drama” exhibition on Wednesday night at the Cité de la Mode et du Design across the Seine, in the temporary digs of the Musée Galliera.
Showcasing the Spring Summer 2012 collection in its entirety, the all-white installation is divided into six chapters, each featuring a series of silhouettes encased in an inflatable plastic dome. First shown during Paris Fashion Week on October 1st 2011, the collection follows a feminine evolution through the stages of life – from birth, through marriage, towards death – all in shades of white picked out in delicate leavers lace, silk satin, wool gabardine and floral embroideries. Certain styles featured tied sleeves and covered veils, evoking thoughts of strait-jackets and religious garb.
