Now reading… irreverant fairytales
If you love the quirky fashion of Dutch art duo Viktor & Rolf don’t miss the English version of their book, Fairytales, out this month. Stories reflecting the ideas behind some of their more fantastical fashion collections include hand-drawn characters such as the brilliantly pink-haired Candy Floss, a lonely disco hedgehog, and Giselle, a princess who had ten of everything. We love it.
And while we’re on the subject of fashion books, check out ex French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld’s new coffee table tome, Irreverant, which she launched just last week at a vampire-themed party during the Paris ready-to-wear shows. Overflowing with the sexiest of images from her career in styling, including her sure to be iconic stint working with Mario Testino for Tom Ford when he headed up Gucci, it’s a fashion lovers must-have. Check out Madame Roitfeld’s interview with the inimitable Suzy Menkes for a little background on the book and her own personal rock chic style, where she says: “My silhouette has not changed, my body stayed young. But you still have to change — there is nothing more vulgar than a woman who dresses inappropriately for her age.”
