Just when you thought your fashion library was complete with every au courant volume you could ever need—including Irreverent by Carine Roitfeld and 100 Unforgettable Dresses by Hal Rubenstein—another heavyweight tome hits the scene. Brace your bookshelves for The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier, a 424-page publication filled with stunning visuals, industry interviews and archival documents all about the French fashion house.
Impeccably timed for the holidays, this stunning hardback will make a great gift for style mavens and fashion collectors alike. Edited by Thierry-Maxime Loriot with Suzy Menkes contributing, it gives a rich overview of JPG “from the sidewalk to the catwalk” as the subtitle suggests. Published by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Abrams in unison with an exhibit on the designer, the book is a work of art in itself—one that we’ll surely add to our coffee table.
