System magazine provides a deep-delve into the world of the fashion industry — from its designers and stylists, to the business of a given house, or e-commerce brand. With their second issue focusing on the individual, the issue features figures who have been setting their own course within the fashion industry — and as there are few individuals as prolific and elusive than Rei Kawakubo, the issue cover story gives rare insights into the life and work of the designer at Comme des Garçons.

Whether it is Bruce Weber's depiction of Americana, a retrospective on Melanie Ward's daring styling, or a shopping report from the Man Repeller — these figures aren't rebellious per se, but each have created an individual voice within the industry hum of the fashion world. Full of signature character, these figures are people who make fashion engaging to read.

Currently stocked in quality retailers worldwide, including Opening Ceremony, you can also purchase copies from their website.
