Childish fun by Commes des Garcon
Sometimes I do like to talk about single garments that attract me for several different reasons - they can be amazingly gorgeous or the exact opposite.

The sparkling golden pants were the hot item of the show, but the sinless t-shirt with Rei's emblem also attracted some spectators. I wasn't too allured by it, I thought it had a relatively huge print and the ideal Rei tries to depict is "corrupted" by the lightness of the garment. The sweatshirt draws my attention since my perception of it is that it's a cozy wearable item, that not only allows me to throw on something really comfortable - yet kind of nice , but it also transmits the concept of Commes des Garcon.
