Commes Des Garcons is one of the innovators of avant-garde
fashion and avant-garde is one of the easiest and hardest themes to follow. This
created an interesting scene for the Met Gala 2017. You can experiment with
your style because that’s what avant-garde is, experimentation in the realms of
music, art, literature and of course, fashion.
However, as 2017’s Met Gala has displayed, it’s not the most
simple theme to nail and when every celebrity hitting that red carpet is
dressed to the nines in funky fashion, you might struggle to stand out.
Have a look at some of Threadz’s favourite interpretations below:
Model Bella Hadid taking Rei Kawakubo’s “pieces for the body” comment and running with it in Alexander Wang
Say what you want about Katy Perry but she nailed avant-garde in a custom Maison Margiela gown
Priyanka Chopra giving camel queen dream in a Ralph Lauren trench coat dress
Zendaya rocking Dolce and Gabbana Alta Moda
Lookin’ spooky. Rei Kawakubo (founder of Commes Des Garcons and the reason everyone turned it out) reportedly wore trainers on the red carpet. It’s her party, she’ll wear what she wants to.
