5.0 out of 5 stars A must in your fashion book collection, January 31, 2012
This review is from: Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion (Hardcover)
Future Beauty is an amazing and wonderfully done book. It's main focus is on the works of Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garcons), Issey Miyake, Jun Takahashi (Undercover), Junya Watanabe, Kenzo Takada, and Yohji Yamamoto.

It also has a nice section of newer/lesser known Japanese designers like mintdesigns, Tao Kurihara, Final Home (Kosuke Tsumura), and others. However, it's sad to see designers like Shinichiro Arakawa, Koji Tatsuno, and Masaki Matsushima ignored, especially Matsushima. He seems to be left out of just about every fashion book on Japanese designers. It's ashame because when he did a women's wear line, he was one of the best around.

The photography is beautiful and this book NEEDS to be in your collection.
