Description

Rei Kawakubo, the enigmatic head of innovative Japanese fashion house Comme des Garcons, has a special vision which extends beyond clothing to furniture, architecture, and graphic design, always defying conventional thinking. "i-D" examines Rei's complex and conceptual world, digging through the magazines archive and re-visiting interviews which explore how the fashion house continues to challenge the Western ideals of body shape and garment construction. Breaking the conventional rules, Kawakubo continues to push boundaries, perfectly marrying fashion with art in the most unexpected of ways. Packed into 120 pages is biographical and personal information as well as imagery from photographers including Paolo Roversi, David Bailey, and Emma Summerton, plus interviews with Jamie Huckbody, Josh Sims, and Terry Jones.
