Little Book of Schiaparelli

Spotlighting eccentric couturier Elsa Shiaparelli, Little Book of Schiaparelli is overrun with strikingly imaginative, and experimental design work. ‘Cultivating a combination of the witty and the surreal, the cutting edge and the elegant’, prepare to be beguiled by the natty garments and jewellery Schiaparelli created. We’re bookmarking her next-level collaborations with Salvador Dalí, Jean Cocteau, and Alberto Giacometti et al.

Little Book of Louis Vuitton

A story of transformation – from luggage company to high-fashion label – Little Book of Louis Vuitton (released 5 August 2021) spans many epochs, spotlighting the Jazz Age, the Swinging Sixties, and beyond. The 1980s saw the global expansion of Louis Vuitton, with the creation of the powerful fashion conglomerate LVMH, and that’s just for starters… Page turning stuff indeed.

Little Book of Yves Saint Laurent

Synonymous with luxury – and artistic drama – Saint Laurent’s ascent from fashion student to right-hand of Christian Dior himself is quite the story. Little Book of Yves Saint Laurent traces the designer’s early years through to the founding of his own fashion house in 1961, and the creation of the now legendary ‘le smoking’ trouser suit, and, of course, the Mondrian dress.

Opening the archives of fashion’s most iconic houses, Welbeck’s Little Book of fashion series offers readers an authoritative summary of the brands they love the most.
