Dear Shaded Viewers,
Comme des Garcons Homme Plus took place at the CdC HQ in Minami Aoyama, Tokyo in front of 50 people from the industry. The theme for S/S 2022 was the presence of flowers. The setting was a rainbow runway where the models wore motifs of small flowers in a variety of patterns, some knitted others printed and appearing with skulls. Flowers bloomed over layered distorted silhouettes with curved cut-offs, military looks, skirts and overalls.
From the collection notes:
The Existence of Flowers
Flowers are not there only for happy times.
They exist also for tough, sorrowful and painful times.
Even a tiny roadside flower can heal our shredded heart.
Music: Original composition by Ugo Nardini(ADC-303)
EP : Black Wave.
Tracks: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5
Headpieces: Ibrahim Kamara
Hair artist: Takeo Arai
Prints by BEDELGEUSE for CdG HOMME PLUS
Travis Bedel aka Bedelgeuse is a 31 year old collage artist, living in Phoenix, Arizona, who creates astounding anatomical collages that splice together bones and organs with flowers. His collage work, mostly a hybrid of analog and digital techniques, takes on a surrealist quality as human anatomy seamlessly intertwines with crystals, flowers, and feathers.
Deeply moved by the mysteries and potentialities of the human body, Bedelgeuse’s work revels in the relationship between humanity and nature. His mixed media collages illustrate the fragility of the human psyche and it’s fleeting beauty.
Bedelgeuse’s work bends towards the melancholic: “Most of my work represents love, loss and letting go.”
He had participated in group shows all over the world including in the US, the UK, Athens and Tokyo.
