Video Tour of Rei Kawakubo at the Met staff

For its 2017 show, the Met Costume Institute honors Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo with a massive retrospective of her work. The Japanese designer is known for her fanciful avant-garde creations, many of which stretch the boundaries (literally!) of traditional couture. See a video tour of the exhibit above.
