Originally born in Algeria, Yves Saint Laurent moved to Paris when he was 18, and only three years later he was handpicked by Christian Dior to take the reins as designer of his fashion house. Over time, Saint Laurent resurrected haute couture from the casual mores that predominated in the 1960s, but also offered chic cachet to ready-to-wear clothing. He was among the earliest of designers to incorporate non-European references into his work, and in 1983 he became the first living designer to be feted with a solo exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Vogue on Yves Saint Laurent is a stellar volume in the series from the editors of British Vogue, featuring 20,000 words of original biography and history and studded with more than 80 images from their unique archive of images taken by leading photographers.

After Andy is Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni’s insider's account of working in Andy Warhol’s studio and Interview magazine, and explores Warhol’s impact on the art world, pop culture, society, and fashion—and how his iconic status gave rise to some of our most influential tastemakers today. Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni met Andy Warhol when she was sixteen, and then on and off over the years before landing in New York City at the Andy Warhol Studio, or as she calls it, “Adventures in Warhol Land.” In this witty, page-turning account, she takes readers deep into the Pop artist’s world—as well as miles into the stratosphere of the socialites, fashion icons, film stars, rock legends, and art world powerhouses who could be found in his orbit—where she worked with Fred Hughes, Brigid Berlin, Vincent Fremont, and others who were once part of the Factory clan. As the last person hired at the studio before Warhol died in 1987, Fraser-Cavassoni saw firsthand the end of an era and the establishment of a global phenomenon. From the behind-the-scenes disagreements and the assessment of his estate, which included Interview magazine and his art inventory, to the record-breaking auction of his belongings and the publication of his diaries, Fraser-Cavassoni examines the immediate aftermath of Warhol’s death and his ever-growing impact, which ranged from New York to Los Angeles and throughout Europe. Interviews with key figures of the art world and dozens of Andy intimates make After Andy and its subject more relevant than ever today.

Kennen Sie Eve Babitz? Journalistin, Partygirl, Künstlerin, Muse: Bis zu ihrem dreißigsten Lebensjahr hatte Eve Babitz bereits jede dieser Rollen inne. Schon als Kind war sie Teil der kulturellen Bohème Kaliforniens. Zu erster Berühmtheit gelangte sie als nackte Schönheit am Schachtisch mit Marcel Duchamps und als eine von Ed Ruschas Five 1965 Girlfriends. Doch ihr erstes Buch zeigt Babitz als Schriftstellerin mit eigener Stimme und eigenen Geschichten. So erzählt sie von entzückenden Highschool-Schönheiten, beneidenswert tätowierten Chicanas und Rockstars, die ihren Rausch im Chateau Marmont ausschlafen. In ihren scheinbar beiläufigen Anekdoten verdichten sich Glamour, Witz und Tragik auf einzigartige Weise. Hier lernen wir die wahre Schönheit von Los Angeles kennen: Zitrusbäume wiegen sich im Wind, immer bis zum nächsten Erdbeben.
