Anyone who knows me, pretty much knows that I'm a superfreak for all things Mina Perhonen.
When I saw Hiki was selling this book through her store, I snapped it up. Like all of Minagawa's publications, the printing and the design is lovely. This book is bound using a traditional Japanese technique, and comes with it's own slip case. The contents are great as well- featuring images of the designer's textiles, embellishments, articles in English, and quotes from the designer and his team.
I've also been meaning to share this with you for a while- images from a CD that my brother in law Alex and his girlfriend Satoko brought back from Japan for me featuring the Mina Perhonen F/W 2010-11 collection. A single model is featured throughout, wearing MP, lounging and moving quietly through spare, modern interiors. Very pretty- sorry my iPhone photos of my computer screen don't really do the video justice.
Also for kicks- I have an extra copy of this issue of So-En which is really beautiful- featuring both Mina Perhonen and Liberty, which I am giving away to the first person who leaves a comment under this post :)
