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.
Marc Jacobs has made a name for himself as the epitome of downtown New York cool. Entering fashion history after his notorious “grunge” collection for Perry Ellis in 1993, Jacobs would soon be hailed by Vogue as “the dauphin of grungy, understated cool” and rise to become one of the most influential designers of his generation, both at the helm of his own label and as creative director of Louis Vuitton from 1998 to 2014.
The first book on the popular designer, Marc Jacobs is an inside look at the revered collections, and is filled with 280 inspiring and never-before-seen images by Vogue photographer Robert Fairer. Opening with an essay on the designer’s work, the book unfolds chronologically, revisiting the most iconic creations and revealing behind-the-scenes moments that show models, hairdressers, stylists, makeup artists, and Marc Jacobs himself at their most creative. Fairer’s stunning and high-energy photographs capture the youth, glamour, and energy that defined Jacobs’s shows.
