‘Red Comme des Garcon: Innovation, Provocation’ is an exhibition opening tomorrow at London’s Live Archives that celebrates the radical spirit of Japanese fashion house Comme des Garcon and its head, Rei Kawakubo.

The pieces on display are all from Live Archives’ collection of directional contemporary fashion, which Comme des Garcon is considered the vanguard of. ‘Red’ showcases the work of the brand from 1994 to 2012.

The exhibition seeks to display pieces that are the archetype of the Comme des Garcon brand with their communication of the brand’s key aesthetic codes. Comme des Garcon’s experimental sculptural forming of the body and their subversion of gender stereotypes through dress is evident here.

Also on display will be a series of images by James Ari King and styled by Amanda Hansson that are a response to the pieces presented in the exhibition.
