2010 год. This is the first comprehensive survey of Japanese avant-garde fashion of the last 30 years. Such designers as Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo made an enormous impact on the world fashion scene in the late twentieth century, challenging established notions of beauty and turning fashion into art. This spectacular book, written by a team of experts led by the eminent fashion historian Akiko Fukai, Director of the Kyoto Costume Institute, explores the distinct sensibility of Japanese design ? the uniqueness of its form, cut and fabric. Illustrated with over 250 photographs and sketches, Future Beauty is an authoritative and stylish guide to some of the world?s most expressive fashion. The book accompanies the extraordinary exhibition designed by Sou Fujimoto at the Barbican Art Gallery, London.
