not what has been seen before
not what has been repeated
instead, new discoveries
that look towards the future
that are liberated and lively
this is the Comme des Garçons
approach to creating clothes
the spring / summer 1997
collection has arrived now
—Rei Kawakubo

すでに見たものではなく、
すでに繰り返されたことではなく
新しく発見すること、
前に向かっていること、
自由で心踊ること。
コム・デ・ギャルソンは、
そんな服作りをいつもめざしています。
1997 年春の服がそろいました。
どうぞおでかけください。
