Future Beauty

Currently exhibiting at The Barbican in London is Future Beauty, a comprehensive survey of Japanese fashion from the last 30 years. Organised around four themes – blackness and shadows; flatness and form; tradition and innovation; street style and popular culture – the exhibition explores the most precocious and left field of styles to come out of the land of the rising sun. Think Issey Miyake's pleats and porcelain buttons, the avant-garde silhouettes of Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons and Yohji Yamamoto's draped monochrome masterpieces.
