From Cover to Cover
When I gaze at my office book shelves I see that they are lined with terrific books. Not surprisingly, most of the titles are published by none other than Rizzoli. Again and again they produce masterful written works that caprivate the fashion and design savvy audience. Just when I think I have enough, I see a lengthy list of new releases that have me salivating.
Case in point... yesterday marked the release of the highly anticipated Christian Louboutin book. Swoon! Cannot wait to possess this incredible work. I love that Christian himself was disappointed the tome couldn't contain ALL of his glorious creations. I sense volume two won't be far behind. Be sure to get your manicured hands on what is sure to be a collector's piece.
Next up, Louis Vuitton: Architecture and Interiors. Could this get any better? My love of fashion, luxe craftsmanship and my interior design combined in one hardbound cover. Any of you who delight in the fanciful design of retail spaces and a brand's impact on architecture will surely covet this book. If you've traveled abroad (especially to Japan) you'll see just how dramatically Louis Vuitton has transformed the retail experience both inside and out.
And finally, the grande dame herself... Carine Roitfield. If ever a woman caused ripples in fashion and business, it's Carine. Considered a visionary and muse to many fashion giants, this controversial Vogue editrix opens up and shares French Vogue editorial tearsheets, behind-the-scenes look at campaign shoots and even an offers us an inside view into her creative thought process and sensibility. Carine Roitfield: Irreverent is a book I, a student of fashion and the imposing figures who shape the landscape of the business, must read.
