Around the world, dandies embrace style while respecting their local cultural traditions. Dandyism transcends fashion--it is a committed way of life. An international survey of the global dandy community from the creators of I am Dandy. From America to Africa to Asia, dandyism is a way of life. It is fashion in the best sense, self-esteem through style. And, in every country, it takes a unique form as dandies draw on the local context and fashion culture to shape their looks. We Are Dandy throws open the doors of the wardrobe and explores the dandy as a global phenomenon. With texts as witty as the subjects are stylish, the book pokes between the folds to let us know these exceptional individuals. For them, their dandy fashion is more than a trend or a phase, it is who they are, the outer expression of their inner selves. Photographs and profiles paired with clever histories reveal what it takes to look your best around the world.

This extensive volume delves into the world of fragrances—the iconic brands and the creative minds behind the most fabulous perfumes. Fascinating interviews with parfumiers reveal their inspiration and explore such topics as how fragrances can be used at home or as signature scent. Try to describe a smell without thinking back to a place and time and it’s impossible not to have all five senses come into play. Scent is immersed in our lives. It conjures up memories of travels and temperatures, feelings about people and things. Fragrance transports you and can make your heart skip a beat. In A Scented World by author and design journalist Claire Bingham, we step inside the cradle of haute parfumerie and meet the talented aesthetes of the industry who are creating the most soothing and tantalizing scents for our olfactories. Where does the future of fragrance lie? How does the creation of a new scent begin? How do you capture the essence of a moment and release it upon a person’s skin? More than just a nose, their philosophy combines art and science. Part designer, cook, visionary, and engineer, their trade is built on a passion for botanicals and intuition. These fragrance heroes have the ability to take something everyday and with a unique blend of ingredients, craft it into something quite exquisite. This book steps into the lives of the modern perfume elite and discovers how to create an atmosphere just like the pros. As important as good food, wine, or music, fragrance brings beauty to daily life. Perfume is food for the soul.

The interaction between photography and fashion has always been compelling - how can artists balance commercial viability against their own creative vision? In this collection of cutting-edge fashion photography, full-page colour and black-and-white photographs represent an incredible range of styles and techniques - from Jeff Burton's lush Hollywood-style scenarios and Roe Etheridge's classically styled portraits, to Marilyn Minter's messy, make-up smudged conceptions of beauty, and Viviane Sassen's gorgeous African shots. As the notion of the "fashion photographer" becomes less distinct, the industry is benefitting from the incredible talents of artists whose influence leads the genre into a multitude of surprising, often shocking, directions. The photographers featured in this exciting collection represent a cutting-edge trend in all its diversity.

Graphic tees have been around for decades now, representing as-pects of our lives we are not afraid to share in public, from social and political affiliations to artistic and musical preferences, life-style pursuits or sense of humor. Freestyle focuses on one distinct style of this artwork on ap-parel: the simple line illustration. Whether representational or ab-stract, there is a looseness there, a studied playfulness which ap-peals to our sense of whimsy. Brands respond by commissioning some of the world’s best artists to create graphics that speak to their consumers while exemplifying their graphic identities. Not limited to t-shirts, this survey includes sneakers, hats, glasses and accessories, all displaying this casualness of form.

This accessible and beautifully illustrated book brings together the most important designers who have moved fashion forward over the past century. Fifty major fashion designers are profiled in this book in fullcolor spreads that showcase their most memorable creations. Red carpet regulars such as Armani, Prada, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana are included, as well as the classic clothiers Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, and Oscar de La Renta. While some of these designers have designed for the masses—Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Diane von Furstenberg—others prefer the fierce over the functional: Jean-Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, and Helmut Lang, for instance. Readers will learn how the early twentieth-century designers such as Coco Chanel and André Courrèges made fashion history, and discover who’s making it now: Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford, to name a few. A celebration of diversity and innovation and an essential handbook to a century of fashion, this exciting and informative look into the world of style will delight readers of every taste and age.
