Published to coincide with the exhibition “Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion” held at Haus der Kunst in 2010, this publication marks the first comprehensive survey of Japanese avant-garde fashion over the past three decades. Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo made an enormous impact on the fashion industry in the late twentieth century, challenging established notions of beauty and turning fashion into an art form. This spectacular book, written by a team led by the eminent fashion historian Akiko Fukai and designed by John Morgan, explores the distinct sensibility of Japanese design and the uniqueness of its form, cut and fabric. Illustrated with over 250 photographs and sketches, Future Beauty stands as an authoritative and stylish guide to some of the world’s most expressive fashion.
