"Some people collect art, some people collect Comme des Garçon clothes. This book's for the latter. The tome explores the impressive archives of fashion's most obsessive collectors. The vivid photography showcases hard-to-find vintage Issey Miyake pieces, iconic John Galliano items, and more. 'Essays throughout by leading thinkers and writers provide insightful commentary alongside each collection featured in this new, enlightening fashion bible, ' the description reads. Consider me sold." -- WHOWHATWEAR.COM
