Dear Shaded Viewers,

Are you looking for Christmas Presents? Take a look at what Taschen has on offer here:\

Last week I made a post on the limited edition scarves of Ai Weiwei and the bags

and today on the treasure that is Fashion Desginers A-Z. The book feels as good as it looks. Above are just a few of the designers included in the book.

From Azzedine Alaïa and Coco Chanel to Alexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent, celebrate over a century’s worth of fashion greats. This updated edition, expanded to include 15 new labels, highlights some 500 garments in the permanent collection of The Museum at FIT in New York City. Features texts by the Museum’s director and chief curator Valerie Steele, international style authority Suzy Menkes, and portraits by Robert Nippoldt.

Hardcover, 26.2 x 33.6 cm, 4.69 kg, 720 pages
