Comme des Garcons Black Velvet Faux Jacket & White Cotton Petticoat Dress

About

Many have tried to explain and thus honor the genius of Rei Kawakubo and her label, Comme des Garcons. The designs often appear eccentric and purposefully distressed with intentional unfinished seams and frays in the fabric but the strongest identifying characteristic is how the garments 'feel' when worn. This black velvet and white cotton design makes the appearance of a two part ensemble though it is expertly stitched together to form a one piece dress that has characteristics of Victorian era clothing including the 'feel' of weighty layered petticoat style undergarments. The cotton section of the dress closes with a long row of hooks similar to corset closures and incorporates layers of ruffles interspersed with netting and the occasional slit. The velvet 'jacket' buttons at the front with a Peter Pan collar, hip pockets and a modified swing style silhouette at the back. The bodice of the jacket is slit at the bust both exposing the cotton ruffles underneath as well as any undergarments you choose to wear. The dress could also be worn as alternative outwear and can take on different moods depending on shoe choices and other accessories including hairstyles and make-up. Very good condition with intentional distress at some seams and unfinished edges (so there are stray threads here and there). Please note that the dress is weighty and might prove to be uncomfortable for petite frames. In addition, the colors are true black and bright white though the white cotton appears slightly pink in some of the photographs. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS Marked a size 'S' for Small, best fitting U.S. sizes 4 - 6 with attention to the following measurements taken with the dress hooked and snapped closed. For visual reference, the mannequin in the photographs is a size 4. Bust 38" Waist 31" Hips 37" Sleeve Length From Underarm to Cuff 17.5" Shoulder Length Taken Across Back From Sleeve Seam to Seam 15" Length From Shoulder to Hem 45" Length From Shoulder to Waist 13"
