    I smiled all the way through this. Yumi Sakugawa has a magical style & grace that is all her own.

    I was surprised to love this collection as much as I did since I have absolutely no interest in fashion (to which anyone who's seen me can attest). Sakugawa seems to both truly appreciate fashion and see the ridiculousness in it. The basic premise is her predictions of what will be trendy in the future, and some of them made me actually laugh out loud. The drawings really anchor the premise. They're (I hate this word, but) whimsical but detailed. At the end there are photographs of a gallery sho I was surprised to love this collection as much as I did since I have absolutely no interest in fashion (to which anyone who's seen me can attest).

    I knew I was going to buy this book when I found out about it. There’s something singularly me about the premise, that there is this whimsical artist out there creating Yoko Ono-esque wish tree fashion designs. I bought it on pre-order without having anything else by the artist, and I’m glad i did. Sometimes a book finds you at the right time and strikes the right chord, and that’s exactly what this did. This is a very simple set of comics; you could easily finish in a day. It’s like a run around I knew I was going to buy this book when I found out about it.

This is a very simple set of comics; you could easily finish in a day. It’s like a run around in the imagination (or sketchbook) of a fashion designer from the future — one who also appears to be well versed in Zen meditation. In this watercolor bubble, Yumi Sakugawa envisions a future where the community participates in your wish tree dress, cultural appropriation is a thing of the past, people honor signs of ageing and decorate them in gold, people wear grids to showcase found items, and fashion technology makes you feel less alone. Overall, I found this an uplifting experience. Yumi Sakugawa's art is whimsical, light, and kind of witty in a way that feels very singular; if you don’t get it, you won’t, but if it’s for you, then it’s a joy.

    This was surprisingly good. Somewhat crude art but crazy vibrant colours and incredibly imaginative fashion visions. Some of the art made me laugh. Some of it made me think. Some of it was challenging to decipher. Another great book from Retrofit. If they do a 2019 Kickstarter I will definitely support them.

    This is the definitive guide to finding your capsule wardrobe. Exceptionally detailed and meticulously researched, this collection establishes Sakugawa as a must watch designer.
