The Supermodern Wardrobe is inspired by the city in transit, exposed to the elements and to the gaze of the passerby. To explore this phenomenon the book focuses on the work of designers such as CP Company, Maharishi, Samsonite, Simon Thorogood, Kosuke Tsumura, Vexed Generation, and the artist Lucy Orta. All use fashion as a means of addressing the problems and possibilities of the urban environment. Their clothes are designed for supermodern spaces like airports, motorways, railways - and the street.
