Met Gala, Exhibit Honoring Rei Kawakubo Previewed in Paris

Monday, 06 March 2017 11:37 AM

PARIS (AP) — The Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute has previewed parts of its highly-anticipated exhibit honoring Comme des Garcons designer Rei Kawakubo during Paris Fashion Week.

Kawakubo, 74, attended the Monday sneak-peak alongside Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Wintour will co-chair the May 1 Met Gala that inaugurates the exhibit with Katy Perry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen and Pharrell Williams.

The preview showcased five dramatic, flame-red Comme des Garcons creations framed in a neon-lit structure — designed by the Tokyo-based designer who founded the lauded house in 1973.

It has been showing collections in Paris since the early 1980s.

It's the first time the famed gala, and accompanying exhibit, will focus on one living designer since 1983, when it was Yves Saint Laurent.

"Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between" runs May 4-Sept. 4 in New York
