“My Present State of Mind (rather than a theme)
Things I feel we don’t need these days:-
..the making of intricate fabrics
.. the use of complicated colours…
..patterns which clearly define the body..
..details that emphasize the clothes..
..the intention to make clothes
.. what remains in the end after getting rid of all these things is the strongest thing
like simple pebbles that you get after rough rocks have been washed over and swept down the river”
– Rei Kawakubo
“I felt the pure heart of the people through the photographs of Jamie Hawkesworth’s trip to Bhutan, India and Kashmir, and became nostalgic for Asia. This collection is an expression of this sentiment.” – Junya Watanabe
