Christian Louboutin Published by Rizzoli An amazingly beautiful book of outstanding quality, would you expect anything less from this designer? A perfect purchase or gift for any lover of shoes, and in particular, fans of shoes designed by Christian Louboutin! Full of glossy images with a fanciful pop-up and elaborate foldout cover, this book focuses on his early life, career and the artistic process that goes into creating these luxurious shoes. A collector’s item with a hefty price tag, the book is still well below the price of purchasing an actual pair of Louboutin’s iconic red soled shoes.
The Trench Book By Nick Foulkes The trench coat has become a popular choice over the past few seasons, available at all price points and materials with numerous variations seen on its iconic lines. But it’s nothing new. Aquascutum, a producer of quality menswear in London claims a trench coat design dating back to the 1850’s and later Thomas Burberry submitted a trench design for an officer’s raincoat to the United Kingdom War office in 1901. This book explores the evolution and allure of the trench throughout the years and its role in both fashion and film.
