The Unsettling Vision of Rei Kawakubo - The New Yorker
In Kawakubo's voluminous clothes one felt provocative yet mysterious and protected. They weren't sized, they weren't conceived on a svelte fitting model, then inflated to a sixteen. Their cut had the rigor, if not the logic, of modernist architecture, but loose flaps, queer trains, and other sometimes perplexing extrusions encouraged a client of the house to improvice her own style of wearing them. ... these 'multiple open endings' were a tactic for liberating female dress from an 'omniscient male narrator.'"
