COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS S/S 2021
Theme: METAL OUTLAW
COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS launched the latest collection Spring Summer 2021. The theme was named ‘Metal outlaw’. The fashion show took place at the Tokyo headquarter today on 28 July 2020, due to the COVID-19.
The show kicked off with a video projected on the wall by Brazilian artist Alberto Bitar. Five models appeared at once. Everyone wore “silver-shined” clothes that look like they were stamped with silver. The shoes were sneakers in collaboration with Nike, and the hair was dragon ball hair like Vegeta. Although silver clothes were often described as futuristic, they were more likely animated characters.
The show consisted of 5 people x 6 groups. The second team was a suit style patched with partially printed silver materials. The point of the third team was “docking and hybrid”, and the coat and tailored jacket, and the rider’s jacket and the tailored jacket were integrated. The fourth group was a group of silver x white. The fifth team was a pale-tone yellow, green, and blue setup, and the sixth team was a black suit army with the jacket lapel decorated in silver. Only the first team was doing all the silver.
