Stephen Sprouse by Roger Padilha & Mauricio Padilha
The long-awaited Stephen Sprouse book arrived today (it's been out since Jan 9 2009 - but surprisingly I am not at the top of the book distributors' list - hmmm). It is printed on marvellous paper. It comes in a variety of luminous colours - I got hot pink ones and all the page ends are hot pink too - this is one of my favourite colours. My friend Marisol has a hot pink pashmina from India and I often plot to knock her over the head with a pan and steal it.
Sprouse's fashion illustrations are out of this world. I heart them.
