Comme des Garçons SIX, issue 1

The incredible first issue of Comme des Garçons ‘Six’ magazine (1988) features the work of Hungarian photo journalist André Kertész, Peter Lindbergh, Sachiko Kuru, Jean Cocteau, Arthur Elgort, Eileen Gray, Kotaro Sugiymama, Michel Sauer, and an interview with Yohji Yamamoto.  Beautiful first-edition printing throughout, including die-cut features.  This issue was one of the only to include text; subsequent issues were intended to be understood by images alone.

Between 1988 and 1991, Comme des Garçons explored the theme of the sixth sense via eight special biannual oversized, unstapled magazines titled ‘Six’. These magazines were launched to coincide with Comme des Garçons fashion collections and were privately distributed at the time.  The magazine visually represented the brand in a way that no other fashion company had before. Rei Kawakubo invited Tsuguya Inoue to art direct and Atsuko Kozasu to edit the issues, whilst contributions came from different designers and artists.

Issues of Comme des Garçons ‘Six’ have become very sought after collectors items.
