After previously showing you the Junya Watanabe collection, we now take a look at the Comme des Garcons Spring/Summer 2010 Collection.

“Throughout the Paris shows, designers have shown tartans, African prints and nautical stripes, but Rei Kawakubo was the only one to pack all three themes into the same garment. That she did, in patchwork trousers and blazers with collages of colorful panels, pockets and silk neckwear appliqués. Skullcaps and ornamental strands dangling from hips, at times worn with dark suits and white shirts, seemed to reference Orthodox Jews. The garments were familiar, such as loose suits and mini kilts over trousers—only the embellishments were new.”

For the most part the collection is made up of patchwork heavy pieces and a lot of color. The few pieces that are a little more toned down we like a lot, some of the stuff is just too out there for us. The blazers and especially some of the cotton pants are very nice as well.

Take a detailed look at the Comme des Garcons Spring/Summer 2010 Collection after the jump.
