Last week, acclaimed New York-based artist photographer Todd Selby debuted his latest tome, Fashionable Selby, the latest in the bestselling Selby series.
Fashionable Selby explores the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. From the showrooms of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London, and from Yves Saint Laurent’s eyeglass maker in Paris, to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashion’s biggest names, rising stars, and best-kept secrets.
Chapters on the individual artists bring readers inside their studios, workshops, and homes. Also featured throughout the book are Selby’s signature photographs and watercolors of the artists and their environments, as well as the things that inspire them, the materials they use, their creative process, the people who work alongside them, and the final pieces.
Selby’s first book, the best-selling The Selby Is in Your Place featured portraits of creative people—authors, musicians, artists, and designers—in their home environments. In Edible Selby, he focused his lens on the culinary world and took readers on a whirlwind tour of the kitchens, gardens, homes, restaurants, and workspaces of over forty of the most dynamic food and drink purveyors working today. Now, he’s showing off his passion and love for all this sartorial in a visual essay that showcases both creativity and innovation. Here, we take a look at Mr. Selby’s latest book.
