WORK THE BOOK
This week’s WORK THE LOOK is becoming WORK THE BOOK for the amazing artist and designer EIKO ISHIOKA. Her books EIKO BY EIKO and EIKO ON STAGE are truly a lesson in art. Her works have appeared in numerous ad campaigns,designed costumes for the Olympics, and you’ve definitely seen her creations in tons of movies. Some of her most notable screen works have been in the films BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA and THE CELL.Who could forget the divine “lizard wedding dress” or the muscle inspired armor Dracula wears in the opening sequence? Both books (published in 1990 and 2000 respectively) give an amazing inside look at the costumes and process behind the making of them. Painstakingly crafted, most of the clothing is on display at art museums around the world. We no longer have EIKO as she passed from pancreatic cancer in 2012 but we do have her brain teasing pieces forever. We highly recommend picking up these books, put them on your coffee table and watch as your guests look in awe at the pages. EIKO FOREVER.
