Wearing Comme des Garçons FW09 ‘Wonderland’ coat, SS04 taped seam skirt, Damir Doma boots, YSL Muse Two bag

I have had this coat for a while now but never had the chance to wear it until I was in Europe. I cannot say it is the most functional clothing ever to guard against the cold because it is constructed more as a sleeved poncho than a proper coat. That, and the fact that it is heavy make it rather cumbersome. However that doesn’t stop me from appreciating the coat for what it truly is – a beautifully crafted garment.

It has been mentioned many times how much I love the Wonderland collection but as always with any forms of substantial writing I have some difficulty articulating the reasons for my fondness of it. So in place of that I have picked out the central themes of the collection that speak to me the most, and they are:

  • Reconstructed utility outerwear
  • Trompe l’œil and juxtaposition of ideas
  • Flared silhouette

…which I will explore further in the next post. Stay tuned.

    Your whole look is wonderful, with the green and the darkness of your lipstick to the brightness of your bag. The Wonderland collection would have to be my favourite as well, I am trying hard to find more pieces from it! I think for the silhouettes, the colours (surprisingly for me), textures (those mesh leggings + toe shoes), and I’ve always wanted to walk around with a blanket draped around me. I too find it hard to otherwise concisely identify why I like it. But that’s okay because it’s still enjoyable to look at.
