    Title: PARIS UNDRESSED : The Secrets of French Lingerie
    Author: KEMP-GRIFFIN KATHRYN
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: APRIL 2017 NEW RELEASE

    Most women wear underwear. French women wear lingerie. French women seem inherently more confident in their bodies, able to embrace the sensuality of life and love. What's their secret? Lingerie.


    Despite an insatiable curiosity for all things French, most women still find lingerie an enigma, a tangled melange of silk and lace, and are confused about how, when, and where to wear it. (Hint: it's not just for special occasions.) Many aspire to having a drawer full of silky, lacy undergarments, but have no idea where to start: How should my bra fit? How exactly do I wear a garter belt? Do bras and undies always have to match?

    With illustrations by French lingerie designer Paloma Casile, Paris Undressed: The Secrets of French Lingerie will help women feel at ease with their figures and show them how to integrate a lingerie lifestyle a la francaise to enhance their own femininity, confidence, and joie de vivre. It will transform the way women perceive their undergarments - and their bodies - and reveal how to co-ordinate a lingerie wardrobe to reflect personality and to meet lifestyle needs with the right dose of reverie. The book also includes a hand-selected guide to the most confidential addresses and lingerie boutiques in Paris, and discloses where to find the perfect bra, couture camisole, or cheeky knickers.

    Paris Undressed goes behind the seams, combining cultural references, expertise, and practical advice to inspire every woman to reconsider her underwear drawer.

    Home of haute couture and the world's leading fashion houses, Paris and its inhabitants represent sophistication and refinement to the rest of the world. In the city s elegant neighborhoods, debonair Parisian men continue to participate in a centuries-long tradition of sartorial craftsmanship and quality. The Parisian Gentleman is like a dream shopping excursion to the leading men s style-makers, from hidden ateliers and little-known studios to internationally renowned labels such as shirtmakers Charvet, shoemakers Berluti, and the recently revived trunk makers Moynat. The stories behind each house, and the creative minds and artisans who give each brand its unique identity, bring the clothes alive, capturing an unceasing dedication to quality in an era overrun with new, mass-produced trends.
    Author Hugo Jacomet's portraits of these often-inaccessible marques (or brands) are intimate and illuminating, thanks to his personal connections to many of the leading figures associated with each. His text is accompanied by beautifully shot photographs of the designers, studios, garments, and locations, the majority of which were taken exclusively for this book.

    Title: PARISIENNES : A CELEBRATION OF FRENCH WOMEN
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Divided by theme into chapters, this light-hearted and nostalgic romp through 20th-century Paris creates a beautiful history of the world's most romantic city and its exceptional women.

    This collection of one hundred and thirty duotone photographs captures the essence of the Parisian femme fatale. All of the great French photographers from the late 1930s through the 1960s are featured, including Robert Doisneau, Brassai, Willy Ronis, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Edouard Boubat, Jean-Philippe Charbonnier, Sabine Weiss, and many more.

    The photographs reveal Parisian women and all of their glorious facets: from the love-struck waif strolling along the banks of the Seine to the belles of the neighborhood balls flushed from their raucous dance moves, from no-nonsense career girls to flirty neighbors. Chanel-clad locals and runway models alike showcase the glamour of the fashion and haute-couture world with inimitable style. One chapter pays homage to the courageous women who battled for justice in World War II, the Resistance, the Liberation, and the revolts of May 1968, including role models such as philosopher and writer Simone de Beauvoir and journalist and playwright Marguerite Dumas.

    The Parisiennes featured here go to work, ride bikes, pose seductively, smile coyly, and are all devastatingly irresistible.

    Title: SEVENTIES GLAMOUR
    Author: WILLS DAVID
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: DECEMBER 2014 NEW RELEASE

    A dazzling compilation of photographs from the outrageous and decadent 1970s, featuring the most iconic films, fashions, music, and art - from the brilliant curator of Hollywood in Kodachrome, Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis, and Audrey: The 60s.

    The 1970s were an era when the age-old glitter of Hollywood was challenged by new forces from afar: an era when old-school stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Liza Minnelli rubbed elbows (and more) at Studio 54 with new stars from the world of punk rock, indie film, fashion, and art: David Bowie, Debbie Harry, Candy Darling, the Sex Pistols. It was a decade whose style was about both glamour and hedonism, about fluid gender roles and experimentation rather than the carefully manicured portraits of an earlier time.
    Photo curator and historian David Wills has made a name for himself as a chronicler of golden age Hollywood, with his richly luxurious portrait collections Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis, Audrey: The 60s, and Hollywood in Kodachrome. Now, in his most diverse and surprising book yet, Wills showcases the great explosive parade of the 1970s - a time marked by an aesthetic of liberation and defiance, sexual freedom and decadent indulgence. Gorgeously reproduced with Wills' expert touch, the photos in Seventies Glamour will be as varied as the decade's own dichotomous persona: Yves San Laurent models alongside Hugh Hefner and his Bunnies, transsexual Coccinelle beside Tom Jones, the Jackson Five in sequined suits and Alice Cooper wearing only a snake.
    Seventies Glamour is a loud and vibrant gallery, unveiling a time when society was experimenting, stars were revealing everything, and style was all about defining oneself by defying expectations.

    Title: STYLE TRIBES : THE FASHION OF SUBCULTURES
    Author: YOUNG CAROLINE
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: SEPTEMBER 2016 NEW RELEAS

    Style Tribes: The Fashion of Subcultures explores the style, fashions and ideology of youth movements of the last 100 years.


    Fully illustrated, it delves into the stories behind the styles, what sets each of them apart, and looks at the influence and legacy of each of these tribes.

    The advent of industrialisation, globalisation and modernism in the twentieth century brought with it an explosion of subcultures, most of which are defined by their youthfulness. As subcultures gain media attention they are absorbed into the mainstream, and the style is often picked up by the fashion industry. The book will look at how these subcultures have been translated into fashion, from flappers and teddy boys to punk and grunge.

    Subcultures inspire, influence and blend into one another: hippies were a continuation of the beat movement, combined with a surfer lifestyle influence, while Jamaica's rudeboys and London mods inspired the original skinheads. There's also a running theme of 'the hipster' - a word that emerged from Harlem in the 1920s from 'hip' or 'hep', meaning non-conformist and one step ahead. This concept has played a part in understanding subcultures including zoot suiters, the jazz loving hipsters of the 1940s, beatniks, the hippie and now the contemporary hipsters with their beards and skinny jeans. Illustrated with historic and contemporary images, it colourfully details each group to give a comprehensive overview of each subculture.
