Comme des Garçons


The Comme des Garçons line comes to H&M today. I looked at the collection on the website and I can say I am intrigued. I am pretty smitten with most the stuff. Especially the men's wear. Anyone who knows me can attest that I wear a lot of black and polka dots which this collection is full of. The extreme tailoring is something I tend to mad about. The dress is my favorite, of course it is also the most expensive at a insane price of $350! It is still H&M is the quality there?
I am going after work to at least check it out and if anything strikes me fancy. I really really want a tuxedo jacket but I don't know if my ample derrière would look good in one.

One thing I don't like the cut outs on some of the peices though. I know myself and I know they would stress my shit out.


When I was in highschool my cousin sent me a Commes t-shirt from fashion week. It had astronauts on it and it was very fitted in a very flattering way. But this was the early 1990's and that was not the current fashion with the teenage set. It was more flannels and giant mens jeans. I would wear it with my dad's jeans and this one guy used to tease me about it every time I wore it. He would make obscene jokes about the name. (think about it) I wore it til my mom threw it away. (She didn't like it either) and I ended up dating that asshole and while I have never missed him I still think about that shirt.

What is your feeling about the pants (left small bubble)? Can you advise me how to look at those and not think the wearer has a full diaper? Is this an affliction I will have since being a parent?

Oh I never said I liked it all. I have my limits and hammer pants are in there. I was too enamored with the tux jacket that I didn't even see them til you said it frankly. I am more of a skirt girl pants get missed a lot by me.

Ah yes, the MC Hammer "genie" pants. That is a memory I'd hoped would never be rekindled.

The tux jacket is appealing. So are skirts.
