    I have a little book about Dries - one of that series with lots of books on various designers. do you know the one I mean? Can't think who published them - assouline? The book is ok - a bit out of date. Is there a thread on good fashion books? That would be a good one - I'm always on the lookout for good fashion books.

    I think I know the series, small format, hardcover with the white dust jacket?

    There has been a few attempts at starting a fashion book thread, but they never became anything. The two books I recommend, which I have on display in my library (and they would be the coffee table books, if I had a coffee table) are "Belgian Design" and "Young Belgian Design". Both books have great images and give a pretty good insight into Belgian design scene and their aesthetic.

    yes the very series Faust. Thats a shame about the thread - it would be a good permanent thread. I love fashion books - that was always what I bought before I could buy fashion itself. A friend of mine used to work for a publisher in London that published lots of fashion books & she'd get me them free... then she moved jobs. boo hoo. my last fashion book was the Vivienne westwood one.

    Since you'll be in Paris soon (as I understand), you might want to visit the Taschen store in St.Germain-de-Pres. :flower:

    aaah - cool yes - we'll be at St Germain - so will look out for it - you don't happen to you where abouts? haven't spotted it you see... Taschen do lots of good fashion books - I remember being impressed with the fashion section of a bookshop next to Angelina's (tea room) on the Rue de Rivoli. Sotlans isn't so good for fashion books?

    I know you liek archtecture etc - have you seen a book called Scandinavian Design?

    It's truly fantastic. Large format, black cover (almost feels like fabric) that opens from both sides, the photos are gorgeous (both male/female collections and invites). Each show is described in detail. Inset in the middle with Dries's biography, interview, etc. Really, really stunning. It received prime real estate space in my bookcase :D
