Tenth anniversary of THE LOOK


The first edition of THE LOOK was published 10 years ago this month.

This is a corrected colour proof of the publisher’s “blad” – marketing/sales printed material for circulation in the book trade.

It’s a period piece. The design is very Wallpaper (so very much of it’s time). I had problems with that, since the book was not a “fashion” title per se, and wanted a less faddy approach with the timeless imagery – Elvis, Bowie, etc – which eventually appeared on the second edition cover.

However, I was pleased that this featured  my great friend Pippa + her musical partner James Dearlove.

To celebrate 10 years, I’m digging out some great photos from the launch shindig in Soho + also some of the cuttings (including the party feature in, of all places, Hello!).

I’ll post them here soon.
