This pack essentially acts as a catalogue advertising the latest ready-to-wear fashion garments for women available in the autumn/winter season 1992. The photographs, taken in different locations, are mainly in colour with a few in black and white. The cards themselves are oversized. It is not clear whether there were ever any jokers included. The board used is see-through. The accompanying leaflet lists all the many outlets worldwide where KOOKAÏ clothes are sold. Animal prints seem to have been “in” that year! See the box►
