Anderson & Sheppard - A Style is Born

£100.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Anderson & Sheppard - A Style Is Born takes a privileged look behind the scenes of one of Britain's best-kept fashion secrets - from the firm's early days as the renegade of Savile Row to its current status as a byword for taste, relaxed stylishness and supreme quality - and as the establishment of choice for the elite of today's fashion, film, business and diplomatic worlds. Edited by Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter and Cullen Murphy - with modern photographs by Jonathan Becker and Christopher Simon Sykes; exuberant paintings by the incomparable Paul Cox; and a playfully elegant historical essay by David Kamp - this unique book lays bare century-old traditions, tailor's tricks and painstakingly detailed craftsmanship, as well as showcasing Anderson & Sheppard's famous measure books and its wide range of exclusive cloths. A selection of the firm's distinguished clientele offers first-person accounts of their experiences at Anderson & Sheppard. This sumptuous edition is packed with stunning images of Anderson & Sheppard's distinctive cut being worn by the leading lights of stage, screen, high society and literary and artistic life. Some of the photographs are vintage - featuring Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, Laurence Olivier, Alec Guinness, Noel Coward, Evelyn Waugh and Marlene Dietrich. H.R.H. the Prince of Wales makes an appearance in his wedding suit. But the book also brims with specially commissioned full-colour portraits of today's Anderson & Sheppard clients - including Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, Bryan Ferry, Taki Theodoracopulos, Henry Koehler, Jay McInerney, Nicolas Roeg, Manolo Blahnik, Nicky Haslam, Sir John Ritblat and Sebastian Guinness. With over 180 photographs, this beautiful volume is a rare glimpse of the very best of classic British tailoring.
The fabric covered slip cover is in good condition. The cloth covered hardback cover is also in very good condition - any blemishes appear to be in the fabric. The binding is sound and the pages clean and unmarked.
Believed to be published 2011.
Due to its weight this item will be sent by courier.
