It’s no secret that Phaidon’s epic The Fashion Book, first released in 1998, is an authoritative resource for industry insiders and fans alike. Now the coffee-table tome has been given new life with a definitive updated addition. Among the seventy-two new entries are Style.com and sartorial luminaries like Bill Cunningham, Nicolas Ghesquière, and Tilda Swinton. To fete the book’s release, Phaidon will be hosting a panel discussion at Topshop’s Soho outpost on Thursday, October 10, at 6 p.m. Iris Apfel, Vera Wang, and Style.com’s own Dirk Standen will be on hand to talk fashion history and the new guard of style alongside moderator Simon Collins, dean of fashion at Parsons the New School for Design. Need another reason to turn out? You’ll have a chance to pick up the new book (as well as a limited edition tote bag and a signed print by cover illustrator Mats Gustafson) four days in advance of its official release.
The Fashion Book New Edition, $59.95, will be available from Phaidon beginning October 14.
Coachella might have come and gone, but across the pond, festival season is just getting started. And if musical meet-ups such as Glastonbury and Lovebox are any indication, no one knows quite how to combine a muddy field, nonstop tunes, and bohemian threads like the English. In celebration of the Brits’ summer concert savvy, Topshop is releasing a full-fledged festival-themed collection. Available starting Friday, the sixteen-piece range pulled inspiration from Coachella veteran Kate Bosworth, who took some of the wares for a spin while in Indio last month. Topshop’s muse also showcases the line’s plaid shirt, denim cutoffs, and simple sundresses while dancing around the desert in a Michael Polish-lensed film titled The Road to Coachella. Ranging from $20 to $400, the capsule hits stores alongside a larger music-themed initiative, comprising Topshop playlists, an interactive worldwide festival guide on the brand’s Web site, and a series of secret international pop-up gigs featuring established and emerging artists alike. Watch the film’s debut (above) and take a first look at Topshop’s festival duds (below) here, exclusively on Style.com.
Chloe Jade Green may be only twenty-two years old, but she’s already designed three footwear collections for her CJG range, which sells at Topshop—the high-street retailer that her father Sir Philip Green’s company Arcadia Group owns. Yesterday, at the store’s L.A. outpost, the British-born designer debuted her Spring ’13 shoes. Out this May, it will be her first collection sold stateside. According to Green, the range, which features her signature lime soles, is geared toward “the going-out girl [and] the girl who loves to wear a wedge in summer with a bikini.” In other words, young ladies prone to nights out at the latest hot spot. Including sneakers and gladiator-inspired designs, the thirteen-piece offering ranges from $190 to $350 and is heavy on geometric cutouts, lattice, and stud detailing, as well as wood, reptile, and raffia touches.
