The book WE ALL must read promptly: Minimalism and Fashion

Madeleine Vionnet, Halston, Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Miuccia Prada, Yohji Yamamoto, Helmut Lang, Frank Stella, Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Rachel Whiteread, Peter Halley, Jeff Koons, Richard Avedon, Hiro, Francesco Scavullo, Guy Bourdin, David Bailey, William Klein, Corinne Day, Juergen Teller. Ah.
TOO ILLUSTRIOUS CLUB? YEAH BABY, DEFINITELY A MUST HAVE BOOK.
I guess the connection between fashion and minimalism is like the connection between the pea and its pod, as Forrest Gump used to say. Especially from the 1960s. Not like when you think "this dress represents a bauhaus building, or a Mondrian painting, like the Yves Saint Laurent one". It's more complex. What is minimalism actually? Symmetrical/asymmetrical lines and something what is unadorned and simple? Hard to describe. "When the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features", as Jimmy Wales said. Sounds correct. Anyway, my birthday is in April and I'd like to read this book pretty much. Okay, you get the message?
