Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Études is a fashion label, a creative agency and publishing house with a focus on art & photography
Established in 2012 by Aurélien Arbet and Jérémie Egry, Études’ star rose rapidly, making it on the official calendar of Paris Fashion Week less that two years after its founding. Occupying a role more in keeping with insurgent Japanese brands from Harajuku, Études is a fashion label, a creative agency and publishing house with a focus on art & photography. With a goal of becoming a total lifestyle label, the brand’s approach is demanding, coherent, consistent and resolutely contemporary.
This book presents the wide array of fashion, art, and style that Études has facilitated since its founding.
