Reading materials

Some of my bedside companions of late:

Dazed & Confused with guest editor, Vivienne Westwood.

Si Lola Viv in one of her manifesto readings.

Tita Carine's magazine, which I buy because of the pictures. Fantastic lay-out!

Kate in YSL.

I got Rofel to buy this book in Cebu coz it's on sale, Radical Fashion.

Included is my fave designer Helmut Lang. Also, Alaia, McQueen, Margiela, Kawakubo, Watanabe, Westwood, Chalayan and Gaultier.

A Magazine as edited by Kris Van Assche.

Fantastic Man featuring the intrepid Mr. Tom Ford.

GQ, I normally don't buy.

But tthere's a feature about Marc Jacobs and I simply have to check it out.

Muji book. I never regretted buying this because it has given me so much ideas and inspirations.

I love their simplistic advertisement from before.

The philosophy of Muji is captured in their serene ads. Timeless product shots of their best selling wares.

An ad from 1996 still looks so modern to me.

I've been meaning to buy this Yohji Yamamoto book ever since it got published. I finally chanced a copy at some bookstore in Manila and I grabbed the last copy.

It fascinates me to no end how a designer 'works'. Here's Yohji contemplating the fit of a suit.
