Launch Warehouse Review 002 | 'A Review of Reviews'

Louis Vuitton fashion review haiku by Hanka van der Voet

This summer will see the release of Warehouse Review 002, ‘A Review of Reviews’, edited by Hanka van der Voet and Johannes Reponen. Warehouse Review examines alternative modes of fashion criticism. With this on-going series, we aim to give a proper analysis and contextualisation of contemporary fashion phenomena, deploying various methods of research and analysis to zoom in on specific aspects that make – in our estimation – a fashion phenomenon into what it is. With this second edition of Warehouse Review, ‘A Review of Reviews’, we are taking a meta approach: we are reviewing the fashion review, and in specific, those of the Louis Vuitton fall 2020 womenswear collection. Through this meta-critique, we explore what we might learn about these past examples of catwalk writing as a way to move the discipline forward. It is now time to critique the critic and to review the review!

With contributions by: Aïcha Abbadi, Chinouk Filique de Miranda, Dal Chodha, Femke de Vries, Hanka van der Voet, Isabel Mundigo-Moore, Johannes Reponen, Laura Gardner, Megan Wray Schertler, Ricarda Bigolin and Sophie Barr. Design by Line Arngaard.

‘A Review of Reviews’ will be available from mid July onwards through the Warehouse webshop and several independent bookstores. This fall the official launch will take place through an online event with editors and contributors of this edition of the Warehouse Review.
