All posts in “Book smart” anniversary tees

Vanessa Traina

On the occasion of’s 10th anniversary a selective group of just the biggest designer names (Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang and Lanvin to name a few) has been asked to create a limited t-shirt edition.  And on top of that fashion’s global A-list has modeled the tees in front of Tommy Ton‘s camera. Oh and to make this even better a proportion of the proceeds will be donated to ‘Computer for Youth’! Now this is not only a perfectly smart and creative idea but also the result is very convincing. What do u think? I’m sold…

In the picture above: Vanessa Traina wearing a limited Givenchy X tee with a classic black blazer and Balenciaga’s Giant City tote.

The Selby book

Todd Selby is the number one source of inspiration when it comes to creative interiors. The new media, more tasteful version of good old MTV cribs (I bet we all watched it at one point…) coveres the homes/ offices of the most coveted artists, models and creative minds like Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, Erin Wasson, Oliver Zahm and Alex Wang, to name a few. Now the Selby is finally releasing a book:


It contains over 30 profiles, accompanied by Todd’s famous watercolor portraits and small interviews, of which most have not been published before on the Selby site. The book is launching on April 1st, but there will be an exclusive pre-sale chez Colette this week, with lots of cool events ranging from Karaoke, to interior consultation and the possibility to get a portrait of your pet.

So, guess where I will be heading today to get my version of the book…?

I just love Todd’s eye for small, random details and his artsy/crazy motives.

Garance at he Sartorialist book signing

Saturday, 5th September, 4:30 p.m. at Colette Paris.

Crowds of young Parisians and international followers of the Sartorialist are queuing outside the famous concept store to get their copy of THE BOOK signed by Scott Schuman himself. It is almost impossible to enter the store and one could easily assume that some popstar came down to shake hands and give autographs. And there, in the middle of flashing cameras, excited fans, the hardworking Colette-staff and next to a very busy Scott, she sits shining and smiling gracefully: GARANCE DORÉ.

Was browsing through the new ELLE (the German issue for once) yesterday when I came across these beautiful drawings taken from Cally Blackman’s collection of the most remarkable fashion illustrations from 1900 until now. The one shown above (“Dior Dress” from 1949) was done by René Gruau for a magazine called “Femina”.
