The Drapy Headwear...



Commes Des Garcon Fall 1983 collection

A typical Rajasthani Headwear 

It's an amazing feeling when I get to capture something that relates to a designer's previous  work or something that exist totally in an opposite side of the world... I really like the drapy/ wrapped around headwear of the man whom I clicked at Washington sq park... When I studied the image it reminded me of an Japanese Fashion exhibition that I attended few years ago at FIT... The third picture is one of the designs from Commes Des Garcon Fall 1983 collection that I saw at the exhibit...The collection was based on creating a new relationship between body and clothes, a new attitude toward the beauty of imperfection, and a new appreciation of avant-garde fashion as 'art'...Japanese designers like Rei Kawakubo, Yojhi Yamamoto and Isse Miyake are known for their paattern and draping skills.... Their whole idea towards deconstruction of the garment is very intriguing...

The last picture is of a Rajasthani man...Their Headwear includes the art of draping a 25 m long fabric around their head... They do it for functional purposes, according to them it helps them to keep their head cool in the blazing heat of Rajasthan...

I liked how all these picture co relate with each other... The Drapy Headwear...


P.S: The guy was just smoking a cigarette!
