don't call it a fat suit! madame kawakubo's "lumps and bumps" collection has been remixed, revised, and revisited by all the youngbloods and old guns in the fashion world. the woman who brought her "apocalyptic chic" to paris in the early eighties proved that she can still rattle the fussiest parissiene feathers a decade and a half later. commercially it was a bust, but big ups for being a woman with balls bigger than the poofs that run this mad mad fashion circus. sometimes its not about being pretty, but not giving a fuck and being original. and no one will argue that this collection has guts and originality in spades. thirteen years later and this shit will avant all the other "avant gardes". you're pretty ace in my book rei rei!


  1. have you seen the Japanese Fashion exhib at the Barbican gallery in London? If u can make if before 6 Feb it is really worth seeing.. a couple of the lumps and bumps dresses are on display, along with loads of other amazing things

  2. ugh i live in toronto remember. the place where nothing interesting happens. however i will be in london in july and i plan on taking full advantage of all the ace stuff your city has to offer!
