Rei Kawakubo, the enigmatic head of innovative Japanese fashion house Comme des Garçons, has a special vision which extends beyond clothing to furniture, architecture, and graphic design, always defying conventional thinking. i-D examines Rei’s complex and conceptual world, digging through the magazines archive and re-visiting interviews which explore how the fashion house continues to challenge the Western ideals of body shape and garment construction. Breaking the conventional rules, Kawakubo continues to push boundaries, perfectly marrying fashion with art in the most unexpected of ways.

Packed into 120 pages is biographical and personal information as well as imagery from photographers including Paolo Roversi, David Bailey, and Emma Summerton, plus interviews with Jamie Huckbody, Josh Sims, and Terry Jones.
  • "While John Waters was able to devote a whole chapter in his recent tome to the brilliance that is Rei Kawakubo, we get a little lost for words in her presence. Thanks heavens, then, for this celebration of the history and art of all her work to help fill in the gaps. To us it’s a holy book, with images provided by iconographers such as David Bailey and Emma Summerton."
