Preface by Jack White. Foreword by Anna Sui. Introduction by Steven Meisel. Do we even need to say more? Written by Andrew Bolton, this book is is 288-page tome of all things Anna.
Its intricate cover and purple gilded edges practically beg you to display it on your coffee table while its 400 lush photographs beg you to pore over it page by page. If we had this, we would read it every night. If you have a book-loving Detroit fashionista on your list, we think she would, too.
From its description:
Here, in the first book to cover the entire scope of Sui’s twenty-year career, fans get rare access to the designer’s creative process. This richly visual retrospective celebrates her influence, from her first show that snared the support of supermodels Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, and Kate Moss to the role she’s played in making the babydoll dress one of fashion’s most iconic silhouettes. With more than 400 photographs from legendary photographers, this exquisite tome—with a shimmering foil-stamped cover—is essential for all fashionistas.
If you’re not exactly looking to guild a coffee table, consider one of these whimsical journals also from the house of Sui. The aspiring fashion writer on your list will love jotting their thoughts down in these.
