Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between by Andrew Bolton
Publisher: Yale University Press
This illustrated volume examines Kawakubo’s fascination with interstitiality, or the space between boundaries. Existing within and between dualities—whether self/other, object/subject, or art/fashion—Kawakubo’s work challenges the rigid divisions that have come to define received notions of identity and fashionability, inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, re-creation, and, ultimately, hybridity. Featuring new photography, and texts by Andrew Bolton, this book expresses the conceptual and challenging aesthetic of this visionary designer.
