A Denim Story: Inspirations from Bellbottoms to Boyfriends
This style bible is a chic and sexy look at the myriad possibilities of blue jeans, the classic and ever-evolving fashion essential. Blue jeans are an iconic part of American culture. And, like the American dream, denim is constantly reinventing itself. A Denim Story showcases timeless images of blue jean style. Featuring such icons as Marilyn Monroe, Patti Smith, Jane Birkin, and Kate Moss, as well as dreamy inspiration boards from the authors' own work, this volume is full of ideas and inspirations. A pair of jeans always makes a statement, whether they are tight and purposeful or loose and frayed. Blue jeans can embody dreamy, girlish innocence or the best of boyishness, as when worn two sizes too big, low on the hips, and rolled up at the ankle. A Denim Story takes us on a journey through the most stylish looks of Americana culture, from the cutoffs and rolled-up cuffs of carefree summertime days to the simple ruggedness of overalls in the countryside, and from the rebelliously ripped jeans of rock 'n' roll to that beloved pair of faded and patched blue jeans we will never throw away. Denim is the material of independence and self-expression, timelessly cool, boasting an authenticity and function that transcend trends and is always sexy. Exquisitely curated by Current, Elliott, and Walsh, A Denim Story is a visual love song to blue jeans, sure to seduce everyone who picks it up.

Art Deco Fashion
What best captures the spirit of Jazz Age fashion? A flapper dress? A cloche hat? As this electrifying book reveals, the Jazz Age signaled a sea change in design that rippled through every aspect of apparel—and would shape fashion for years to come. When the Ballets Russes took Paris by storm in 1909, their costumes lit a fire under the fashion world. Their exotic designs, vibrant patterns, and rich, luxurious materials inspired ingenious designers like Paul Poiret, Natalia Goncharova, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and Madeleine Vionnet to create garments that were bold, inventive, and quintessentially modern. With shorter hemlines and more daring cuts, these cre­ations reflected the spirit of liberation and increased independence for women. With a wealth of illustra­tions, many from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s world-famous dress collection, this lush book captures fashions as playful as the Charleston and as elegant as a luxurious ocean liner.

Bespoke: The Men's Style of Savile Row
A fully illustrated history of bespoke tailoring—the custom-made men’s clothing that made a small London street a globally known brand to generations of sartorial connoisseurs. Savile Row is renowned for fine custom tailoring—"bespoke" in its own parlance. The term originated when cloth for a suit was said to "be spoken for" by customers who have included generations of stylish and tasteful men, from rakes to royals. Bespoke is the epitome of male sartorial style, exquisite quality, and craftsmanship, and has been worn by a veritable who’s who of famous and important men: Winston Churchill, Cary Grant, Russell Crowe, David Beckham, and countless world leaders. Bespoke charts Savile Row’s contribution to fashion and culture chronologically and features twenty-six profiles of today’s master tailors from historic firms such as Gieves & Hawkes and Henry Poole to more recent ones like Nutters and Ozwald Boateng, who was the first Savile Row tailor to stage a catwalk show in Paris.
