While writing this article, I’m wondering how many of you agree on that writing a book at some point in your lifetime is a beautiful insight to and reflection on everything that surrounds and strives you. Autobiographies are one of the most honest and exciting publications and are not less attractive when your story gets completed with a whole series of fashion imagery. Alexa Chung model, style icon, and the co-host of the daily music television program Fuse News is on to launch her first book, in which she shares her inspirations, musings and her very own personal and eclectic style. The book, titled ‘It’, provides her legion of fans with a long-awaited inside look at her world and wardrobe, gathering a one-off collection of her personal writings, sketches and looks. With wit, charm and a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, this gorgeously designed full-colour book is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, music and just about everything Alexa Chung as much as we do. ‘It’ by Alexa Chung, published by Particular, is available for pre-order on Amazon now.

Während ich diesen Artikel schreibe frage ich mich, wie viele von euch zustimmen würden, dass das Schreiben eines Buches an irgendeinem Punkt im Leben einen wunderbaren Einblick und eine Reflexion über alles, dass uns umgibt und berührt, gibt. (more…)

Living in such digitalised world, print publications are having a hard time to stay in race with blogs and online magazines. Leading Fashion Magazine, British Vogue – also called the Fashion Bible – is probably the most prestigious magazine of all times, and most likely each of us gets the chance to have a closer look at it once in a while. Besides the other popular Conde Nast publications such asGlamourW Magazine or Vanity Fair, the UK provides us with excellent independent publications too, just like i-D or TANK. Both of them are covering contemporary culture, such as art, architecture, fashion, current affairs, and music with a distinct voice in a least convectional style. By the way the latter was actually founded by former Vogue art director Terry Jones back in 1980. We fall for the German Elle Magazine too; it’s slogan: ‘Si elle lit elle lit Elle’ (If she reads, she reads Elle) remained true for more than a half of century. Germany’s new success Magazine, OE, acts as a platform for the German, and particularly the Berlin fashion scene. Another favourite is the Hungarian publication, titled the Room, which is a bi-lingual (English and Hungarian), cutting-edge mag with unique visual imagery that speaks about high-fashion and arts in a boundless way. Scandinavia also has its own visual diaries, namely just the two biggest ones: the Swedish ACNE Paper and the Danish DANSK Magazine, both displaying strong Scandinavian attributes in editorials, chosen themes and not least sharing a high-quality content.

No matter how digitalised world we are living in, there will always be a need for print publications. It is so much about holding a heavy piece of book, its texture, its smell, the beautifully printed images. These six books I have chosen to show you have seducing visual material on fashion and beauty. The Little Black Jacket series styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld featuring over hundred celebrities, while each showcasing Chanel’s eponymous tweed black jacket. Model Kitchen stands out a bit because it is also a very functional cookbook, in which there are 75 ‘clean living’ recipes featured from Cesar Casier. The Allure of Beauty was written by film critic Karen Durbin in collaboration with ELLE magazine and is filled with inspiring quotes and images of cinema’s most captivating actresses. In Vogue is the definitive history of the world’s most famous fashion magazine describing its evolution from Diana Vreeland to Anna Wintour. Bazaar Greatest Hits is a fabulously stylish visual journey through fashion history. Closer celebrates the diversity of subjects that has made Scott Schuman, The Sartorialist’s photography so unique. Which one of them is on your wish-list?

Egal wie digitalisiert die Welt, in der wir leben, ist, es wird immer das Bedürfnis nach gedruckten Werken geben. Es ist schön ein schweres Buch in den Händen zu halten, es anzufassen, es zu riechen, die wunderschön gedruckten Bilder. (more…)
