Six Magazine is Moving…

Twice a year I took the train to Paris, just so I could get my hands on the next issue of Six Magazine by Comme Des Garçons, the most inspiring magazine at the time.

.

In 1988, Comme des Garçons founder and creative director Rei Kawakubo created bi-annual creative journal Six (and abbreviation of Sixth Sense), presenting her own work alongside that of other artists, photographers, designers and writers. The magazine closed its doors in 1991, by which time it had become an institution for the Japanese brand, and it’s now the subject of a stylish new iPad app. Moving Six takes an interactive look back into the archives, still a source of inspiration for Rei Kawakubo, packed with photos by Steven Meisel, Minsei Tominaga and Karl Blossfeldt, all tinted and enhanced especially. Be inspired.
