In a way the entire collection is a successful exercise in shapes and structure, many of them made of PVC, a material most people shun for being cheap. Yet it is so like her to use the most unexpected material to create her weirdly beautiful babydoll dresses (unlike Mr. Slimane who probably used fantastic fabrics for his unoriginal version of grunge-y ones). It offered an insight into my own preference, in that I value ideas, techniques and craftsmanship over materials, just as long as the materials themselves are not of poor quality. I did think it would be rather nice if the garments were re-made in the best leathers, but to do so would be losing what is quintessentially Comme des Garcons.
