Store highlights: Fashion Week-ness

In the fashion world it's Fall 2011 already. The big fall fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, Paris) run from February through March every year. I've come to rely on them to help fight my S.A.D.; distracting me from the spring countdown and renewing my interest in cold weather wear (Another two months of boots and coats? No problem!). Inspired by my fashion weakness, I thought I'd highlight some of our amazing fashion focused stock.

Graphic Design for Fashion is a fantastic coffee table book on the print material of contemporary fashion, from magazine design to runway invitations and lookbooks. Shown below: graphic design related to the Swedish creative agency and jeans brand ACNE.

Worn Fashion Journal
is a refreshing alternative to the mass of fashion rags out there—it's smart, well researched, affiliated with Tavi Gevinson, plus it's Canadian! Shown above: the current issue, articles include a look at vintage spectacles and the history of tweed.

It was Terrence Malik's Days of Heaven that provided the main inspiration for Rodarte's Fall 2011 collection but the designers behind the label, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, have also cited Badlands as one of their favourite costumed films.

I've mentioned this book before, but it never seems to get old: Un-Fashion, a photo collection of world costume and dress by Tibor and Maira Kalman.

The most prescient book on the fashion market I've read recently—covering Japanese Americana, secret brands, and vintage tradeshows—is William Gibson's newest novel Zero History. We have a few signed editions of this remarkable novel left. Get it while you can!
