As part of its seasonal artist collaborations for the direct mailers, Rei Kawakubo chose legendary mangaka Katsuhiro Otomo for the year 2013. Kawakubo re-imagined his art in a way only she can, highlighting some of Otomo's most iconic work such as Akira, Domu or Steamboy from an entirely new perspective.
