This is Not a F*cking Street Style Book is the first monograph of cult photographer and influencer, Adam Katz Sinding (aka Le 21ème), an astute documentarian of major fashion events, top brands, tastemakers, and trendsetters since 2003. For a long time, streetwear was nothing more than the rebel kid brother of high fashion. With his candid, fashion forward-scouting photos, Katz Sinding shows how streetwear has transformed into a leading style reference pioneering trends, championing creativity, and inspiring high fashion designers the world over. Today, the flair of streetwear is as likely to be seen on the runways of Milan, New York, and London as on the streets themselves. This bold fashion book brings together Katz Sinding’s most striking streetwear images, both on the streets and backstage at more than 20 fashion shows around the globe. With his unique backstage access, Katz Sinding captures such top designers, supermodels, and stylists as Kris van Assche (Christian Dior), Lucas Ossendrijver (Lanvin) and Grace Coddington (Vogue), as well as contemporary fashion icons such as Virgil Abloh, Imaan Hammam, and Luka Sabbat. The book also features a fascinating conversational piece on the streetwear phenomenon between Adam Katz Sinding, Virgil Abloh (founder of Off-White), and MENDO.

An architecture book for all those excited by contemporary, innovative building design and development Richly illustrated with a broad spectrum of architectural photography, drawings, and sketches A look behind the scenes with one of the world’s leading architects In many regards, architecture of the 21st century has to fit a square peg into a round hole. It should be energetic and meaningful and yet be as sustainable as possible in all details. It should offer ample and proportioned space for its inhabitants, but also fit harmoniously into its environment. Architect Jean-Francois Koenig has been meeting these requirements for four decades. With the goal of improving the life quality of the inhabitants and users of his buildings, he sets out elaborate aesthetic designs that also include infrastructure and transport connections. The projects in Jean-Francois Koenig’s portfolio—including offices, private houses, hotels, public buildings, and schools—reflect his enhancement and integration of the many facets of urban life. When he won the third prize in a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) competition in 1979, with Norman Foster as judge, Koenig was the only architecture student among the winners. Even at that stage, his sketch for a pedestrian link between Trafalgar Square and Leicester Square demonstrated his sense for the city environment, not to mention his outstanding graphic talent. One of Koenig’s many esteemed projects is the Commercial Bank on the island of Mauritius, Koenig’s native home, where he continues to reside. JEAN-FRANCOIS KOENIG was elected one of the “100 Architects 2012,” a competition organized by the Interna­tional Union of Architects (UIA) and the Korean Institute of Architects (KIA). In the 1980s, he worked with the RIBA Gold Medal Award architect, Sir Philip Dowson. At the 2011 UIA World Congress in Tokyo, under the heading “Sustainable by Design 2050,” his Mauritius Commercial Bank was amongst the best of the archi­tecture of Africa. Koenig has worked in England, South Africa, India, Madagascar, the Seychelles, La Réunion, and Mauritius for the last 30 years.
