Avant-garde Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo of Commes Des Garçons hasn't remotely toned down her vision for her collaboration with H&M, at least judging from the pictures floating around the Internet. A waxy-looking model with a Dutch boy haircut models Hammer pants and deconstructed Edwardian blazers (both Commes trademarks) while her male counterpart tries valiantly to see through his greasy bangs. It's all very odd, but then, that's Kawakubo's appeal—for an interview with WWD about the line, she showed up with her jacket on backwards.
