In The Eye, we meet fashion designers like Dries van Noten and Kris Van Assche. Directors like Spike Jonze and Melina Matsoukas. Tastemakers like Grace Coddington and Linda Rodin. We learn about the books they read, the mentors who guided them, their individual techniques for achieving success. We learn how they developed their eye - and how they've used it to communicate visual ideas that have captured generations and will shape the future.
Legendary Authors and the clothes they wore by Terry Newman
From Zadie Smith’s exotic turban to Patti Smith’s androgynous styling, this beautiful book combines two of my favorite - literature and fashion. Delving into the relationship between an author’s style, choice of attire and their work, perfectly outline the signature style of fifty iconic authors of our time.
Small Pleasures by The School of Life
In the age of technology, amongst a ‘heads-down’ generation (scrolling the social feed / emails on your phone all the time), this beautiful title reminds me of everything from the distinctive delight of holding a child's hand to the joy of the evening sky. This also reminds me of the movie ‘About Time’, where a dying father told his son if he can travel back in time again, noticed the little things in your day-to-day life and eventually you’ll see the world in a different way with a little more appreciation in life.
