Two major books looming from 7 L and Steidl (for our money, the best makers of fashion books on the planet, right now). The first: current Numero editor and Jill magazine legend Babeth Dijan has her own album coming. Includes all the big hitters such as Mert Alas & Marcus Pigott, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Nathaniel Goldberg, Karl Lagerfeld, Peter Lindbergh, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Guido Mocafico, Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello, Liz Collins, Solve Sundbo, Camilla Akrans, Greg Kadel, Dusan Rejlin, Ellen von Unwerth, Paolo Roversi. And that makes it a must for the reference library of every young fashion-head looking for an education.
The second is lensed by Mr Lagerfeld and highlights Mr Brad Kroenig, which the Steidl catalogue describes as "the world's most sought-after male model, ranked number one at models.com at the time of this printing" . It is not at all dreary backstage snaps . Mr Kroenig will appear in the many, many pages of "Metamporphoses Of An American" in the guise of James Dean, as Rudolph Valentino, as a Gatsby-like figure from F. Scott Fitzgerald, and as Lieutenant Pinkerton from Puccini's Madame Butterfly. Very iconic!
And as a reward for clicking " read more" a bonus byte. Vogue Italia Sept 07 cover goes to...Agyness Deyn. She's not going away!
