Kenzo, the book

In honor of "Paris Fashion Week,"an introduction to Kenzo, the first exhaustive book ever published to present forty years of the Paris-based fashion house, founded by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada and now  revitalized under artistic director Antonio Marras. Established in 1970, Kenzo is one of the great French houses that transformed global fashion in the latter half of the twentieth century.
This lavish volume comes in a real fabric cover, available in three different patterns, and with a pop-up that evokes the romantic textiles, envelopes, and paper craft for which the house's fashion collection are known.
This book is truly an art object in and of itself.
