Comme des Garçon
“For more than 40 years, Rei Kawakubo has been widely recognized as among the most important and influential designers in the world. We’ve seen many books that mix art and fashion, but this is one of the few that was able to match them perfectly.”

“I had little expectations before this book arrived. Alas and Piggott are relatively unknown in The Netherlands, but every fashion / photography enthusiast immediately falls in love with this limited edition. The typography of the box alone, is enough reason to purchase this book.”
