Shoe street style represented by the major fashion capitals of the world: Paris, Milan, New York, London, Berlin, and Copenhagen For students of footwear fashion, cultural anthropology, fans and admirers of innovative street style fashion, or anyone looking for creative personal style inspiration   Shoes are a staple in every person’s wardrobe, but depending on the wearer, they can transform from basic functionality to a unique and compelling fashion accessory that can “make or break” an outfit as a distinct expression of personal style. From vintage and quirky, to edgy and Goth, and sleek and high-end, It’s All About Shoes shows an eclectic mix of what fashion-forward mavens choose to put on their feet each morning to make a statement on the everyday runway of city streets. In an increasingly globalized and homogenized culture, it is these daring individuals, whether devoted followers of fashion or completely devoid of trend, that street style photographer Suzanne Middlemass has captured for their bold, beautiful, strange, yet always interesting choices in footwear that make them truly stand out. It’s All About Shoes presents a variety of exciting and inspiring street style images with a “sole” focus on shoes!

Featuring hundreds of photographs, this lavishly illustrated guide to some of the most distinguished British brands takes a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at their enduring success. Classic style and British manufacturing are both experiencing a boom in demand—driven by a desire among consumers for authentic, quality products. Britain is uniquely placed to benefit from this resurgence, given the number of heritage companies still producing at the top of their game. From the world-famous Barbour in South Shields in the north of England to John Lobb in London, many of these fine businesses remain in family ownership, protective of their traditions and justifiably proud of their products. Many are the bearers of warrants from the British Royal family and all are over 100 years old. Horst Friedrichs explores the historic places where these British brands have become some of the strongest in the world: Johnston’s of Elgin in the north of Scotland, Corgi socks in southern Wales and John Smedley in Derbyshire. By highlighting the stories of these legendary brands—both new and old, grand and humble— Friedrichs and Crompton show how relevant these companies and their traditional production techniques still are. A Very British Heritage is a must-read for anyone that appreciates well-crafted products and timeless style.

Consisting of over 300 objects from the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, the collection is by turns edgy, experimental, and even disturbing. Objects range from a necklace featuring a gold cast of a rodent skull to a ring made from a hand-wrought, white-gold nail, bent and thrust through a large smoky quartz. With hundreds of new images and five incisive essays, the book brings this little-known collection to light.

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.
