Early Purples really sum up the anti fashion aesthetic of the late nineties, and this is no exception. So, we have at least 200 pages which include a brilliant Margiela piece, super work by Camille Vivier, Maurizio Cattelan, Elein Fleiss, Terry Richardson, Susan Ciancolo, Anders Edstrom, a super Kim Gordon/Mark Borthwick piece, Comme des Garcons by Borthwick and so on. Amazing.
