Comme des Garçons Short Sleeve Sculpted Pleats Denim Dress
Denim is masterfully rethought in this avant-garde Tricot Comme des Garçons day dress. The utilitarian textile in a rich indigo blue is gathered, pleated and ruffled to take on a lightweight appearance in the pretty knee-length silhouette. The bodice alone is genius in its intricacy with its puffed short sleeves trimmed in sweet pleats, its asymmetrical center front finished with a ruffle of raw fringe and its abundance of gathers that meet at the seams to create a traditional fitted-waist silhouette minus any of the normal dress pattern conventions.
Gold stitching throughout nods to the fabric’s history in jeans, but also accentuates the deconstruction at play here—and the brilliance of the Japanese designer behind it. Pulled on or off over the head, this is an easy piece despite how tricky it seems and an amazing find for a woman with an appreciation of clothes that push the boundaries.
