REI KAWAKUBO AND COMME DES GARCONS

Catalogue of photos documenting clothing, shows, stores, and all that goes into making a brand as driven by Rei Kawakubo, “anti-fashion” founder of Comme des Garçons. From the introduction: “In the twenty years since she started Comme des Garçons, Rei Kawakubo has made a deep impression of the language of fashion around the world. Her clothes, no longer exclusively the monochromatic compositions with which she made her name, have donw as much as anybody’s since the New Look of the 1950s to reinvent ideas about fashion.”
