Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Abloh has been translating his tools and techniques from his training as an architect and engineer into the fashion world
Launched in time for a major exhibition of Virgil Abloh’s work, this flip book shows images from the original video created to launch the sophomore Spring/Summer 2013 collection of Abloh’s first brand, Pyrex Vision, entitled, “Youth Always Wins.” Since he launched Pyrex Vision, Abloh has been translating his tools and techniques from his training as an architect and engineer into the fashion world and beyond.
He eventually closed Pyrex Vision to open Off-White™, collaborating with brands like Nike, musicians, architects, and others. In addition to creating Off-White™, Abloh has worked with Kanye West, collaborated with Takashi Murakami, performed at Lollapalooza, started a furniture collection with IKEA, and more. In 2018, Abloh was named Men’s Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton.
