New fashion books: The Selby, Sex and the City, and Kate Moss
Wednesday 19 May 2010
From the homes of creative people for your coffeetable to supermodels' novels for your bedside table: here are the latest fashion book releases.
For Carrie maniacs
Coinciding with the premiere of the Sex and the City 2 movie, the corresponding official book has been released May 18. Every single outfit worn by Carrie in the movie is detailed in the 500-pages tome, including every item's brand and Sarah Jessica Parker's commentary. Prices are $19.95 for paperbacks and $29.95 for hardcovers.
Order via http://www.amazon.com.
Todd Selby of TheSelby.com, a blog that portrays creative people in their homes, has released a book with more than 30 new habitats, including those of a few famous figures such as Karl Lagerfeld but mainly of lesser-known hipster types around the world. The unconventional layout and collection of drawings, stickers, and personal notes make this a must-have for anyone on the quest for inspiration. Costs $35.
See you later, alligator
Written by a sports journalist, a new book on Lacoste traces the history and visual language of the sportswear label with the iconic alligator branding. Lacoste by Olivier Margot was just released by Assouline and sells for $50.
Leading fashion photographer Mario Testino has teamed up with one of his favorite subjects, supermodel Kate Moss, to release a limited-edition, 128-pages book this summer. 1,500 copies of Kate Moss by Mario Testino will go on sale for €350 (around $417) each. The book will launch in July.
Welcome to Modelland
What sounds like any teen boy's dream is an upcoming novel trilogy, written by model mogul, Tyra Banks, who will leave her TV show next year. The story of her "drop-dead beautiful, kick-butt fierce" 'Intoxibellas' with superpowers sounds like something between science fiction and America's Next Top Model. Modelland will be released by Random House and the brand new Bankable Books, the new branch of Tyra's Bankable Enterprises.
