Not finished, or perhaps even started your Christmas shopping? With only one week left until the big day, SHOWstudio Shop has an array of gift ideas to inspire you and if you order before midday on 21st, we'll make sure they reach you on time.
We have an array of stunning books on offer. Our very own Nick Knight boasts three publications- Nick Knight, Nicknight and Flora. From fashion through to botany, they showcase Knight's groundbreaking work and reflect his extraordinary vision and fearless experimentation in photography and image making. Each of these volumes are available signed to the person of your choice to make them an extra special gift.
A very special book by Peter Jensen is another wonderful gift idea for your fashionista friends. Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Peter Jensen's Muses' at the Denmark Design Museum, this book catalogues his unique working processes. For each season, Jensen takes a muse for its inspiration, often someone unconventional or of niche or antiquated celebrity. This book unfolds his processes from inspiration to creation, with a wonderful encyclopedia of images, fragments, and documentation of his muses, his designs, and from the behind the scenes.
Or perhaps it's the Vogue On series of short books commissioned by Vogue to celebrate the defining fashion designers of the last century that's your perfect stocking filler. Featuring full page photographs and sketches, the first four books in the series discuss the significance of Elsa Schiaparelli (Watt), Coco Chanel (Cosgrave), Christian Dior (Sinclair) and Alexander McQueen (Fox) and draw extensively on the Vogue archive.
Aside from books, we also have a range of limited edition prints and unique art works. In the run up to London Fashion Week we invited one of the city's finest emerging talents J.W.Anderson to preview his S/S13 collections here on SHOWstudio. Giving us unprecedented access to his designs, Anderson came to our Bruton Place headquarters and sketched his much anticipated womenswear line before it hit the catwalk. Each drawing explores the forms, colours and emotions caught up in his pieces and you can see him sketch them in a beautifully edited film exclusive to SHOWstudio. Each of these one of a kind drawings are available for purchase from the Shop online or in store.
The list goes on; from jewellery by Fraser Hamilton to millinery by Piers Atkinson or Claire Barrow's customised leather biker jacket. If you're looking for something really special this Christmas, then look no further.
