Fresh deliveries for the summer
Elmgreen & Dragset
Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have been working together since 1995. The Scandinavian duo (Elmgreen is Danish, Dragset Norwegian) is based in Berlin, and has been crossing the lines of conceptual art, architecture and design on the biggest stages in the world. They’re probably best known for Van Gogh’s Ear, a vertical swimming pool in the shape of an earlobe, and of course, the infamous Prada Marfa, a Prada store in the middle of the Texan desert.
Jack Davison: Photographs
At only 28 years old Jack Davison already has a monograph that spans twelve years of his work. Aptly named Photographs, this book shows the dreamy, saturated work of the British photographer made in the earliest stages of his career. Davison has worked for the New York Times, British Vogue and many other reputable media.
Thierry Mugler: Couturissime
Mugler might not be as huge as he was during the late eighties and early nineties, his brand is still going very strong. Accompanied by an exhibition in the Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Couturissime celebrates 45 years of Thierry Mugler’s fashion business with photography made by greats such as Helmut Newton, David LaChappelle and Richard Avedon.

And it comes in a striking pink color to make your Catwalk collection complete.
