Jamie Reid and Comme des Garçons Homme Plus: "Time For Magic"
Isis is extremely pleased to announce the launch of the Jamie Reid/Rei Kawakubo collaboration for Comme des Garçons.
The Autumn/Winter 08 menswear collection is entitled Time For Magic after Jamie Reid’s eponymous work from 1995, and features images and text-based works from 1972 to the present. This collection was previewed in Paris in January and has just been launched worldwide.
As a special project Comme des Garçons commissioned Jamie to create a special work for their flagship store in London – Dover Street Market.
This work features a multiplicity of images from Jamie’s archive plus revisited works from the Time For Magic collection; pasted, over-pasted, torn and repositioned in a manner that is beautiful, arresting and startling to encounter in the pristine environs of Mayfair.
This collaboration has been project-managed by Isis Gallery.
Time For Magic indeed!
