Like the Boys


"My approach to fashion design is influenced by my daily life... my search for new means of expression. I feel that recently there has been a little more of an interest towards those who look for new ideas and who are searching for a new sense of values.  My wish is to be able to continue the search for the new."
- Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons
