Fashionable Selby

Todd Selby has a new book coming out: Fashionable Selby. As always, Selby has managed to find an eclectic bunch of highly creative eccentrics who never seem to clean their houses, and are hoarders of absolute crap. How these people live, let alone create beautiful things, in their squalled homes astounds me, but it's a also kind of fascinating. Though one would think, looking at this, that creativity and mess go hand in hand. But there are neat and tidy creative people out there I'm sure. Or maybe they're all just art directors like me... 
What he said, from The Selby's website – "The next installment in the bestselling “Selby” series, Fashionable Selby explores the kaleidoscopic world of fashion, featuring profiles of today’s most interesting designers, stylists, haberdashers, models, shoemakers, and more. The subjects include a mix of the avant-garde, the traditional, the must-haves, and the totally unexpected. Chapters on individual artists bring readers inside their studios, workshops, and homes, and include Selby’s signature photographs and watercolors of not only the artists and their environments, but also the things that inspire them, the materials they use, their creative process, the people who work alongside them, and the final pieces. From the showroom of one of the Antwerp Six to the studios of Central St. Martins in London to a punk knitter in Brooklyn, Selby captures some of fashion’s biggest names, rising stars, and best-kept secrets."
