Dress to Impress: The Fashionable Selby

You’ve seen his column in the New York Times, you’ve devoted innumerable hours binging on his blog. Now, friends, you have the great pleasure of perusing Todd Selby’s photography in book form. This month, the publishing house Abrams has put forth a 348-page volume devoted to Mr. Selby’s fashion-focused work called what else but Fashionable Selby

Creative people, colorful photos, hand-scrawled interviews—it’s all there. Todd bounces between the homes and studios of some of the world’s most esteemed designers, many of whom are part of the Barneys family. We’re talking  legends like Isabel Marant, Dries Van Noten and Giuseppe Zanotti. And the real pièce de résistance? Our very own high priest of creativity, Simon Doonan, has written the foreword.

The book is the culmination of three years of work and thousands of miles of travel to reach the workspaces of these idiosyncratic individuals. “There are so many interesting creators and unique visionaries in the fashion world that don’t necessarily get out there. There’s a whole side of fashion that people don’t know about,” Todd told the fashion news site, Racked. “People know about the glitz and glamour, and the marketing and advertising but they don’t know about the heart and soul. I thought I could share the parts I love most.”
