Fashion photography books are my vice and if there was ever one to be excited about it's the upcoming 'Kate: The Kate Moss' book created by casting director JessHallett and Jefferson Hack.
Over the years Moss has been the star of he fair share of similar books, like 'Kate Moss by Mario Testino', but this will be the first to chart her career in images. Sensing the mounting anticipation for the title to drop, earlier on today the team at Another revealed the eight options of covers available. The images include that iconic Corinne Day-shot shoot for The Face, along with a 1995 Vogue Italia cover and two Vogue Paris covers. As the title so aptly put it, 'this is work that not only represents the extraordinary depth of work by a single model, but also tracks the history of fashion media and modern culture.'
Kate: The Kate Moss book will be released on November 6.
Before you get excited, it's not an autobiography. Kate: TheKate MossBook is actually a photo book dedicated to the model edited by casting director Jess Hallett and Moss' former boyfriend and the father of her daughter Lila, Jefferson Hack.
According to the Telegraph, the book features shots of the model lensed by everyone from Mario Testino and Hedi Slimane to Terry Richardson and Karl Lagerfeld. The photos aim to chart her modelling career starting from those classic shots taken by Corinne Day for the Face in 1990 to her Calvin Klein ads and more recent work.
The book will be available from November 6 at £50.
Jefferson Hack has confirmed that he and Anouck Lepore are no longer an item. The pair, who began dating back in 2005 and got engaged a year later, haven't been seen publicly together for a year leading many to speculate that their relationship had come to an end. Hack confirmed the news in a recent interview with ES magazine after being spotted leaving an after-party with Scarlett Johansson.
Having already travelled both New York and Miami, Gucci's Icon - Temporary Store is set to open in London today, in Covent Garden. The store - which has been entirely designed by Gucci's Creative Director, Frida Giannini - stocks limited edition Gucci sneakers designed exclusively for London, as well as Gucci sunglasses, and will be open for three weeks from today, or until the limited supply of stock runs out.
Whilst there are 17 styles of trainer altogether, only two are for the girls - a brightly coloured fluro design, and a white pair featuring panels of leopard print pony skin - and more excitingly for the boys, two pairs have been designed by musician Mark Ronson. When customers buy a pair of the Gucci Ronson's from the store, they will also receive a free EP of Chauffeur - the Gucci Pop Up shop band - whilst the second edition designed by Ronson will be available to buy only through the exclusive iPhone App.
Last Saturday, The Fash Pack was lucky enough to be amongst a select group - including Jefferson Hack, Derek Blasberg and Catherine Ostler, editor of Tatler - to be invited to the first-ever screening of the innovative Tim Burton's Disney film, 'Alice in Wonderland'. After having a preview of the designer collaborations involved in the project, the film was introduced by Alice Temperley who has collaborated with Disney on the film.
The movie, which is set to have its UK premiere tonight and will be in cinemas on March 5th, took us on a fantasy 3D adventure. The eccentric characters, played by Johnny Depp (The Mad Hatter), Mia Wasikoska (Alice), Helena Bonham Carter (Red Queen) and Anne Hathaway (White Queen), added a source of inspiration for a string of designer collaborations.
When you attend a Pam Hogg show, you know that it's going to be full of energy and will draw the London 'It' scene. Case in point: Siouxsie Sioux opened the show with a dramatic round tulle headpiece and short black lace bodysuit to a huge round of applause - Jamie Winestone, Jefferson Hack, Peaches Geldof and PPQ's Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker all sat front-row.
The collection was full of all of the pieces you would expect from Hogg. Bod-con bodysuits mainly came in shorter styles in black lace and were often styled with a long train that sat on the shoulders on leather panels. Where the styles were full length, they came completely sheer with only gold panels on the breasts and between the legs to preserve the models' modesty.
Tapping into this season's micro trend, we saw a lot of leather arms on dresses, particularly on bod-con styles in red and blue with leather detail also appearing across the shoulders.
Although the collection is not for everyone, Hogg added a lot of creativity to the London Fashion Week schedule, in a season when most designers have opted to play it safe.
