At SHOWstudio, we are big fans of fashion illustration – every season we commission new artists and illustrators to interpret the collections of key designers in New York, London, Milan and Paris. SHOWstudio contributor One Eye Girl (real name Stephan Beaumont) has been illustrating shows for us since 2015, and now, the self-taught artist has ventured into a new project: a book of poetry by Sarah R, directed and coordinated by SHOWstudio's very own gallery manager and associate director of Nick Knight's archive, Bex Cassie.

Love Doesn't Win opens with a quote from esteemed Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde – 'The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death.' The line is an apt opening for a book of poetry mediating on infatuation, love, loss and heartbreak by Sarah R – all themes Wilde explored extensively in his work.

Sarah R's work is complimented by One Eye Girl's whimsical, delicate works – and yes, you guessed it – all of the characters have just one eye. Referred to lovingly as his 'one eye girls', Beaumont's work exemplifies his particular style and philosophy: feminine imperfection as a source of beauty.

Love Doesn't Win by Sarah R is available to buy now.
