Provocative book launched by Imschoot Uitgevers and designed by Paul Boudens about Walter Van Beirendonck first ten years of fashion.
"Mutilate" documents more than ten years of over the top collections and projects that reference everything from Godzilla to Orlan. Not surprisingly, this spiral-bound book with two working zippers and cut-outs and pop-ups is laden with die-cutting, embossing, and fold-out plates with photography by the likes of Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Carel Fonteyne and Juergen Teller.
This is the innovative artist's book monograph on that bad boy of Belgian fashion and his "Wild and Lethal Trash" aesthetic ;)
