Guys, welcome to the monthly HOW Book Cub! Yup, a book club. Every month I will talk through each of my coffee table books (and maybe some novels!) I’m currently reading and hopefully get to engage in conversations and opinions with you, my readers. When I sent out last month’s newsletter the feedback on having a monthly book club was totally unexpected, so thank you guys so much and I’m looking forward to doing this! I am a super huge fan of books, we have two large bookcases sat either side of our fireplace in our living room and here are where all my books currently sit. Reading is so good for the mind, body and soul and I love to take inspiration from the books I read. So grab a coffee (or two!) and let’s talk about the first coffee table book I’m currently reading!
Chloe is one of my favourite designers and the Chloe Attitudes Book (here), is one of those books that was first on my list to get! It’s extremely heavy and its usually the first book a lot of my guests will pick up when they visit. It chronics the rise of the luxury fashion house. Chloe is the first high end Paris fashion house to sell ready-to- wear clothing. Chloe took haute couture and turned it into ready to wear pieces that reached a much wider audience than expected! The book is super beautiful with the prettiest of pictures and it details each creative director up until Claire Waight Keller (who is my favourite one for the brand by far!).
You will get to see all the beautiful photos from their big campaigns, what happened when Stella McCartney stepped into the role (the new era British girl) with her young fresh creativity and how she took Chloe in a new direction whilst maintaining its femininity and romance for which Chloe is recognised.
I would highly recommend this book; it’s the perfect inspiration book full of super pretty pictures of all things Chloe. After all, who isn’t a Chloe fan?!
Drop me a comment and share your thoughts on what’s your favourite coffee table book and we might just review it next month!
