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.

A wonderful journey through five decades of corporate history of one of the world’s leading modern casual brands. A book that makes fashion fun—a treasure trove of ideas and inspiration for designers and fans of modern casual fashion. An exclusive coffee table book of the highest quality!   The Marc O’Polo success story started in 1967 with two Swedes, an American, a strawberry on an advertising poster, and an O’. When Rolf Lind, Göte Huss, and Jerry O. Sheets started Marc O’Polo 50 years ago, they wanted to conquer the fashion world with natural fabrics and products that came from Asia to Europe. While the fashion industry was still very big on synthetic fabrics in the 1960s, the three co-founders laid the foundation for an emphasis on the natural materials that shape the brand to this day, not letting anything derail their philosophy. And success proved them right, especially under the leadership of today’s owner Werner Böck—their friend, business partner, and loyal companion from the very first days on. In 50 Years of Marc O’Polo – The Book, witness the exciting milestones of Marc O’Polo’s 50-year history–the fashion, creativity, and lifestyle–and discover how the brand became one of the most successful and recognized fashion houses in Germany. The company’s unique history is shown using never-before-seen fashion photographs, smart products, and courageous advertising campaigns. Inspiring quotes and charming anecdotes from those who put their blood, sweat, and tears into establishing and strengthening a label that is the epitome of casual fashion, as well as the committed founders, employees, and competitors, give this account an emotional and personal side. It’s a story about what makes a brand great, marked by an unconditional love for materials, fabrics, and details. 50 Years of Marc O’Polo – The Book is a remarkable history of one of the world’s leading brands. Discover 50 years of O’.

A passionate tribute to vinyl, spotlighting rock’s most influential records — from The Beatles’ 1963 debut Please Please Me, through the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollocks (1977) — 101 Essential Rock Records celebrates the “Golden Age.” A thoughtful essay on each album accompanies the original vinyl cover artwork, with rare variations from around the world. Also included are provocative interviews with musicians discussing the albums and artists who changed their lives. David Bowie speaks eloquently about the Velvet Underground’s influence, noting his band, Buzz, performed “I’m Waiting For The Man” at their last gig, and that “it was the first time a Velvet song had been covered by anyone, anywhere in the world. Lucky me.” Susanne Vega, Peter Buck (REM), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Nels Cline (Wilco), Devendra Banhart, Robyn Hitchcock and more contribute original texts. Pictorial explorations of Jimi Hendrix’s personal record collection, and a survey of censored album covers from throughout the rock era are also featured. The sales of vinyl LPs have been growing rapidly while other physical mediums continue to wither, a trend driven in no small part by classic re-issues and the advent of record store day in 2008. 101 Essential is the perfect accompaniment and guide to digging in the bins for that quintessential vinyl experience.
