“The highlight of my ca­reer has been the friend­ships I have made from Vivi­enne West­wood and Rei Kawakubo to Bill Cun­ning­ham and Anna Pi­aggi,” says Gene Krell, who wrote a per­sonal es­say on his adopted coun­try Ja­pan in ‘More than this’, on page 258. Krell’s in­cred­i­ble ca­reer in fash­ion be­gan in 1967 and con­tin­ues to thrive now from Ja­pan, where he is based with his wife, artist Naoko Ina­gaki. Krell ex­plains his ap­proach to re­main­ing rel­e­vant: “To pro­vide the an­swers, to have a sense of his­tory yet al­ways un­der­stand the me­chan­ics of mod­ernism, and to never let the per­son sit­ting at the next desk know more than you.”
