Basha Gold

Comme des Garcons Gold Tulle Skirt, 2000s

$750

Like many prominent designers before her, Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons has a penchant for making sculptural wearable art with an emphasis on volume. This aesthetic choice greatly influences her fabrication choices making tulle one of her go-to textiles especially in the 90s and early 2000s.

Made from layered metallic gold tulle, this skirt evokes an old-world ballerina feel. The skirt is gathered from the waist down to the hips where ribbon bands of red and gold and one of cerise and black provide separation to the garment. Below these bands, the tulle gently expands to a fuller bell shape ending at calf level with the sheer tulle glittering in the light.

This whimsical skirt is both delicate and eye-catching. It is a light option that can be layered, complete a two-piece event ensemble, or simply worn casually to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit.

Size: Small

Measurements:

Waist: 24 inches

Hips: 36 inches

Length: 30 inches

Unlined, the skirt is stitched onto a white twill tape waistband and closes at the side with a clasp. It is in excellent condition. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
