I had the privilege of attending a Noir Kei Ninomiya show in Paris a little over a year ago. Noir Kei Ninomiya is the newest branch on the Comme des Garcons tree and is the brainchild of Rei Kawakubo’s protegee Kei Ninomiya. The show that I saw (spring 2019) moved me deeply. I feel the way about everything Comme des Garcons the way that some teenagers seem to feel about K-Pop stars these days. I was left totally in awe and I knew I had a new favorite designer. I just had to get my hands on a piece of Noir Kei for myself.
