Comme des Garçons SS 1999 Foundational “Base” Mini Dress with Padded, Structured Fabric at Waist - skirts were shown that season only in the front, as in an apron, or folded in half and attached on the side of the body using safety pins. The design of this mini dress facilitated various ways to style the collection.
Junya Watanabe AW 1999 “Stiff Widow” Collection. Junya explored the relationship between fabric and structure that was lesser dependent on the body than on the construction of the skirt itself. An idea he explores here is how excess fabric can be folded to create utilitarian storage pouches — an idea he expresses most fully in this SS 2003 “Parachute” collection.

Rick Owens SS 2011 Limo Sleeveless V-Neck Tunic with Gathered Front IT 38 — photo taken for my Stylezeitgesit Rick Owens sales thread.
This version in viscose, wool, and silk is far superior to the re-release from NASKA SS 2012 which uses viscose/rayon.
I’m wearing this piece, which can serve as a great layering piece or a piece to be worn on its own, with a DRKSDHW poplin cotton jacket with draped front, DRKSHDW cotton long wrap, DRKSDHW spandex leggings (I’ve left the strip hanging from the leggings) and Ann Demeulemeester over-the-knee boots.
I’ll put this in ebay when I have time. (edit: the listing is here.)—
