New Fashion Japan.
First edition. 4to. 176pp. Colour plates throughout. Printed wraps. English text. Tokyo: Kodansha, 1984.

A wonderful book from the publisher of WET, the Magazine of Gourmet Bathing. Leonard Koren studies the Japanese New Wave from all angles from workwear and traditional clothing to street fashion and subculture and even fashion in Japanese publishing. The book includes in-depth interviews with Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake. Plus a chapter on Tokyo residents talking about their favourite clothing. A super fresh and fun approach to Japanese fashion.
