Commes des Garcons Spring/Summer 2012

Wow, what an explosive collection! Let's just get this out of the way: what is up with those white hoods? Is this a nod to something racist? I'm not surprised Commes des Garcons did this, they have always been provocative. I do appreciate an ode to the biggest trend of next season, white on white on white. On white. On some more white that's hidden beneath another layer of white. 

Very dramatic and beautifully made, overall. I appreciate the stark white throughout the show.  It was refreshing to see dramatic outfits from the unusually boring shows this season.
