Tokyo: Chikuma Shobo Co. Ltd., 1986. 1st Edition. Folio, publisher's white cloth, spine and upper board stamped in black, original glassine dust jacket, original printed paperboard slipcase, printed card with signature laid in.

Classic monograph on the Japanese fashion house’s early days, with a CdG card signed by founder Rei Kawakubo laid in. Acclaimed for her transformational aesthetic, the Paris-based couturier founded the legendary label in 1969, and remains a leader in formal and casual luxury apparel, accessories and furniture. This collection comprises images from 1981 – when the designer debuted her first show in Paris – to 1986 by some of the industry’s most celebrated photographers, including Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Bruce Weber, Hans Feurer, Arthur Elgort, Oliviero Toscani, Paolo Roversi, and others. Lavishly illustrated with dozens of color and black-and-white plates. Edited by Atsuko Kosashi and art directed by Toji Murata. Some chipping and wear to fragile glassine dust jacket, with lower panel detached at joint but all present. Lacking wraparound printed obi band. Light toning and wear to paperboard slipcase. Very good. Item #7477
