Japanese Designer Rei Kawakubo presented COMME des GARÇONS Homme Plus Spring Summer 2023 Menswear Collection, on June 24th, during the recently wrapped up Paris Fashion Week. Named “Another Kind Of Punk”, the collection is inspired by the Middle Age’s court jesters, their uniforms, and ability to speak freely.
The court jesters of the Middle Ages were not only involved in healing.
Often they would be close advisors of the king. Coming from a different world with original ways of thinking, they would have the right to speak freely and give honest insights and advice.
I imagined that these jesters probably had punk spirit
