Future Beauty: 30 years of Japanese Fashion

This is what I'm reading at the moment, Future Beauty: 30 years of Japanese Fashion.  Slowly but surely.  The imagery is incredibly inspiring and the words give me a deeper understanding of how and why the designers go about their practice.  The book accompanies the exhibition that was held at the Barbican in London last year.
