Between the years 1989 and 1991, Japanese fashion imprint COMME des GARÇONS produced a series of biannual magazines titled Six that explored the theme of the sixth sense. Rei Kawakubo enlisted graphic designer Tsuguya Inoue for art direction and Atsuko Kozasu for editorial, producing eight issues of unstapled and oversized A3 journals that were released in tandem with the launch of new CDG collections. The artistic publication was sparse in text and rich in photography. Kawakubo described the project as a “visual representation of the collection, purely for image.” The sizable pages feature contributions from the likes of Louis Vuitton collaborator Bruce Weber, artist duo Gilbert & George, fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa and noted photographer Peter Lindbergh. Now considered collector’s items — a full set will cost you upwards of $2,000 USD — the short-lived and treasured project is brought back to the public’s attention thanks to Kinfolk magazine and collector Andreas Murkudis. Take a look inside the rare CDG Six magazine and share your thoughts below.
