Fashion has always been expanded. ­Fashion practitioners have always produced things other than clothes. Fashion subsumes the fields, disciplines, movements and cultures around it, in a relentless quest for the new. In D&K LOOK BOOK 2019, the traditional fashion ‘lookbook’ is expanded from a slight and selective compendium of a collection to an extensive monograph about fashion practice. This experimental fashion publication, subsumed in the format of a glossy fashion magazine, questions the ubiquity and mass consumption of fashion images. Critical fashion practice appropriates the conventions of fashion publishing to communicate alternative narratives of fashion systems and industry practice as evident in the practice of D&K. This is explored through an obsessive and excessive documentation of the project ‘D&K All or Nothing’ (2017), with imagery by Agnieszka Chabros, Kate Meakin, Layla Cluer, Warwick Baker, Marc Morel and Christine Scott-Young. Newly commissioned texts by fashion scholars and practitioners including Clemens Thornquist, Femke de Vries, José Teunissen, Matthew Linde, Michael Beverland, Nella Themelios and Ricarda Bigolin explore such themes as the performance of fashion, branding, product languages and strategies for critical fashion practice.
