Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between kicked off at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the Met Gala on May 1. Didn’t have one of the coveted tickets? Never fear. In Shock Wave: Japanese Fashion Design, 1980s–90s, at the Denver Art Museum you can see fashion by Rei Kawakubo (designer of Comme des Garçons) and other famed Japanese designers, including Issey Miyake, Kenzo Takada, Kansai Yamamoto, Yohji Yamamoto, and Junya Watanabe.
