Shoichi Aoki


Edition : First / Tokyo / Street / 1998 / Softcover. / VG+
4to, 80pp. Printed wraps. Text in English and Japanese. Numerous colour plates.

Contemporary fashion is what happened when Aoki started taking pictures inside shows as well as outside. This issue has work from Olivier Theyskens, A.F. Vandervorst, Susan Cianciolo, Martin Margiela, Westwood, Dirk Van Saene, Marc Le Bihan, Jerome Dreyfuss, Jeremy Scott, Fred Sathal, that Xuly Bet and Gomme. The publication has the same informal feel and eye as the Street magazine, and being the nineties is also much more ad-hoc than the equivalent today. You almost get the impression that at the time fashion really was a fringe interest.
