Dramatic irreverence might be a mouthful, but it captures the very sentiment coursing through these times and by extension those defiant collections for Fall 2019. Inside V121 a feature by photographer Carin Backoff and stylist Patti Wilson starring Grace Elizabeth, bleached brows and all, speaks volumes on this matter. Silhouette has always been of paramount importance to Rei Kawakubo and her Comme des Garçons collection for autumn is no exception. Grace (pictured) wears a dress, bodysuit, and shoes, all by Comme des Garçons. Without brows or any exposed hair, the picture assumes a most striking quality, the likes of which is tremendous departure of Grace. Of course Grace pulls off the look and serves yet another reminder to readers, though she might shift shapes, she is always the sharpest.
