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.
Their spectacular avant-garde creations are showcased for the first time in this richly illustrated publication
Throughout their illustrious 25-year career, Viktor&Rolf have carved a contradictory identity that pushes the boundaries between art and fashion, often contrasting romance and rebellion, exuberance and control, classicism and conceptualism.
Exploring their concept of “wearable art,” Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years features some of the Dutch design duo’s most show-stopping and innovative works, drawn from the Viktor&Rolf archive as well as museum collections and private collections around the world.
It includes an exclusive recent interview by the curator with the designers, a fascinating glossary of Viktor & Rolf and a rich iconography with iconic images by leading artists and photographers such as Cindy Sherman, Andreas Gursky, Herb Ritts, Anton Corbijn, Mert & Marcus, Annie Leibovitz, David LaChapelle, Tim Walker, Nick Knight and Inez & Vinoodh among others.
