The anthology ‘Chaos / Balance’ will be published by UNDERCOVER.
Photographer Taro Mizutani visited Paris over five seasons from AW 2013 to AW 2015-16, traveling with the show’s production team, including designer Jun Takahashi, for the first time in nine years since ‘the Shepherd’ in 2008. There, he documented the view backstage as the collection was assembled right up until the show’s performance. The published photo collection has been edited from roughly 150 images out of a huge collection that captures a view rarely seen.
To commemorate this book’s publication, a photo exhibition showcasing and selling images from this book will be held from Friday 13th to Saturday 21st at BOOKMARC in Harajuku, Tokyo. In addition, a collection of t-shirts and sweatshirts under the theme of images will also be released from UNDERCOVER.
