Denim jeans, perhaps the most ubiquitous article of clothing to be found in the world today did not always enjoy such widespread appeal. Prior to the 1950’s, denim was largely worn by the working class, be it farmers, construction or factory workers as a durable, utilitarian fabric that held up well against the elements. The earliest proponents were likely the miners of the American West, who in the 1800’s toiled away underground, occasionally leaving some remnants behind for posterity. For some, this history holds a deep fascination bordering on fanaticism as these archaeologists of denim risk life and limb to explore abandoned mines in search of these elusive treasures. Piecing together their finds from all eras and brands to stitch together a picture not only of the history of denim, but also often the histories of their wearers. With beautiful fashion photography and details, vintage ads and photos, this is a must for any serious jean collector or afficianado.

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.

Antonio Donnanno returns to children’s clothing patterns, expanding on previous work and including numerous new garments to dress kids for any occasion. Once again, this text is the result of attentive studies and ongoing updates to measurements and the changing needs that this industry is known for. The author wanted to create a method similar to that for adults, simple yet precise and clear. All categories of garments which are currently made and sold were the object of close study: from gowns to rompers, skirts to trousers and jumpsuits, casual clothes to carnival costumes. In the words of the author: “Each age range comes with models which combine comfort, beauty and style. I hope this text will help simplify the work of those in this industry or of those who just wish to make garments for their family members.”

You’ve often heard the proverb „You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression” And why? Because it’s true. Appearance counts! And the appearance of a gentleman is his stage. In A Gentleman’s Look Book, menswear and style expert Bernhard Roetzel presents stylish combinations fit for every occasion – from elegant to casual chic. For this book, the author has summoned the best dressed men from the fashion scene to share their favorite looks. What does a man wear to a business-lunch, over the weekend, or on special occasions? From the tie to the shoe, from the shirt to the tuxedo – everything a man needs for a stylish appearance is shown in exquisite color photos and diverse, elegant outfits. In the business look, the gentleman appears in a classic and formal outfit, which has many advantages. Bernhard Roetzel: “The classic look is timeless, independent of fashions and trends so to say. It is however timeless in the sense that you can wear classic clothing at any age.” The look of the “casual gentleman” is well suited for day-to-day life. On the one hand, the wearer demonstrates timeless taste; on the other, he shows himself to be finely dressed, despite a certain casualness. The wardrobe for festive occasions shows the gentleman in striking, yet discreet elegance. Bernhard Roetzel, born 1966, is a book author, journalist and one of the best experts of classical gentleman’s style in Germany. He has written several books on the subject and regularly writes for German and international magazines. In the textile industry, he is a sought-after speaker, trainer and consultant

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.

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.
