COMME DES GARCONS 1975-82. THE BEST BOOK WE NEVER KNEW EXISTED!
All this time we never knew! There is a book of the earliest Comme des Garçons campaigns and it
is amazing. Look at it here - it is actually miraculous. The image above is from a 1976 campaign shot by Kazumi Kurigami. That's 1976!
It is one stunning double page after another. Sarah Moon photographed this campaign from 1980. Wow!
The book is testament to an incredible talent. Rei Kawakubo was designing in 1975 and twenty-seven years later her A/W 2012/2013 collection is still the best thing ever!
And this is from Bruce Weber's campaign of 1982 - a year before his first book was published. It is as good as any womenswear shoot of Weber's we have ever seen. Big hair, oversized coats and fingerless gloves - it is hugely impressive.
Deborah Turbeville shot this campaign. Sarah Moon, Deborah Turbeville, Comme des Garcons - triple wow!
It almost goes without saying that the book is beyond rare. This is the only copy we have ever found. In fact, we are as keen to buy as we are to sell... So if you have a copy... we want it!
