First edition

London's Design Museum director Deyan Sudjic's monograph of Comme des Garçons provides the most comprehensive review of the influential fashion house. Exploring the history behind the brand and its notoriously elusive founder Rei Kawakubo. Sudjic decodes Kawakubo's design choices and draws parallels between Comme des Garçons and the modernist pioneer Le Corbusier because of its bridging of fine art and craft. No part of the empire is left untouched, providing a thorough overview of every aspect, from the clothes to the advertising and interior design.
