Kitschmas Present Jeremy Scott
Apparently Karl Lagerfeld once said that Jeremy Scott is the only designer worthy of taking over at Chanel. High praise indeed. And now the uber-kitsch designer is the subject of a new book that follows his creative ascent from the late 1990s to the present, illustrated with Polaroids taken backstage at shows as well as editorial work with photographic big shots including Inez & Vinoodh, Steven Meisel and Terry Richardson. If the image of Charlotte Free roller-skating down the Moschino catwalk dressed as a Barbie left you hungry for more, then this is the book for you. Out Nov.
