This is from the Lumps and Bumps collection by Comme des Garçons. The designer, Rei Kawakubo, designed this in SS 1997 in Japan. It is made of nylon and polyurethane. Under the check-print over dress, there is an under dress that has built in padding on random areas of the body. There is some wrapping around from one hip to the butt and more on the back, like a hunchback look.
