New Titles for London Fashion Week
Sep 13, 2013
To celebrate London Fashion week, we’ve filled our windows with some beautiful new monographs on all kinds of designers, from Roger Vivier and Philip Treacy to fashion photographers Klaus Mitteldorf and Guy Bourdin. New titles on costume, men’s fashion, shoes and textiles are also available, as are exhibition catalogues from the Metropolitan Museum’s recent show ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’, and the Queen’s Gallery’s current exhibition on Tudor fashion: ‘In Fine Style’. We also have an exquisite selection of new jewellery publications on offer, as well as some charming fashion lithographs and drawings from the 1940s.
