Abstract

The focus on the language of photography, materiality and graphics architecture led Rei Kawakubo, founder and designer of the Comme des Garçons label, to design the magazine "Six" in the second half of the 1980s. A real cult object today, it is as hard to find in the book world as in public and private collections. Impossible to pigeonhole, conceived as an editorial experience midway between a concept magazine and a company catalog, the magazine was intended for a targeted audience – the trade press and customers. Eight issues were published over the course of four years, from 1988 to 1991, at a time when fashion brands were increasing their experimentation in catalog, lookbook and invitation design.
