 This book talks about the story and concept of MUJI and its products. The initial purpose of this brand is against fashion and “brand free”, however, none can deny, it have become the most famous brand and leading fashion since 1990s. For me, its simplicity attract me a lot, especial the 2d advertisements are always nature, clean and get the point.
