Book Description Merrell. 1 Laminated Cover(s), 2010. hard. Book Condition: New. Japan has long cultivated its own artistic tastes, but in recent decades the nation's fashion designers have developed distinctive aesthetics that are influencing clothing styles around the world. Among the designs featured in the 250 color photographs here, Junya Watanabe's nylon dress is dwarfed by its extravagant neck ruff; Kosuke Tsumura's transparent rain coat is covered with pockets, all of them overflowing with candy; Jun Takahashi's "Undercover" series showcases models covered head to toe in plaid or polka dot designs; and the company Mintdesigns pairs a top printed with news articles and a skirt made of shredded envelopes. The text charts the past three decades of Japanese design and looks to the future, and individually profiles Issey Miyake, Rei Kawabuko, and Tao Kurihara. 256. Bookseller Inventory # 71973
