The #original X the #outcome - #hansbellmer (1902–1975) La Poupée ( The Doll), #1936 #tate X #commedesgarcons #advertising -The Doll is a hand-coloured black-and-white photograph of a partially dismembered life-size doll sculpture. Partly influenced by #jacquesoffenbach ’s (1819-1880) final opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which the hero falls in love with a realistic life-size mechanical doll, Hans Bellmer built his first Doll in 1933-4 and a second in 1935, of which this is a photograph. -Unlike most of the major fashion brands, #reikawakubo is not part of the cult of the model. There is no “face” of Comme des Garçons she is not dressing “influencers” whoever they might be. She exposes and directly challenges our ideas about beauty, and even coherence, as nothing more than culturally received attitudes. Kawakubo says: “Nothing new can come out of a situation without suffering” and “There is very little creation without despair."
