PARIS, France — “The voice of the designer has never been so important in disseminating brand values. Cynically put, he (or she) who shouts the loudest, gets heard the most. Yet whilst Kawakubo’s refusal to explain herself has often frustrated her public, her silence has given her voice more power and resonance than any other fashion designer in the industry today,” writes Hans Ulrich Obrist of Comme des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo.
Now, for the Autumn/Winter 2013 issue of System magazine, in which Obrist’s piece appears, the revolutionary Kawakubo reveals the essence of her creative process — which forms the very heart of the Comme des Garçons company — in a manifesto made exclusively available to BoF.
