When Jeremy Scott inherited Franco Moschino’s eponymous fashion house in 2013, he did more than just give it a face lift. As fashion’s resident enfant terrible, known for pushing the label with his daring collections laced with pop culture references and rebellious humor, Scott was a natural fit to revive the 30-year-old Italian label, which made its name on rule-breaking outfits. In the years since he became Moschino’s creative director, Scott has sent some of fashion’s most playful collections down the runway, drawing inspiration from everything including Barbie, car washes, Looney Toons, and Picasso to create the ‘cheap and chic’ sensibility they’re known for.
Designed in close collaboration with Scott himself, this volume brings to life the world of Moschino as seen through the designer’s eyes. Featuring a treasure trove of images from campaigns, editorials, fashion shows, backstage photos, front rows, red carpets, parties, and more, it’s all things Moschino, as only Jeremy Scott could do it.

Arguably the most famous perfume in the world—most memorably endorsed by Marilyn Monroe—Chanel No. 5 continues to fascinate and claim millions of devotees around the world. Created in 1921 by Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, the perfume was one of the first to use synthetics. To complement her pioneering fashion, Chanel wanted to give the modern woman “a perfume, but an artificial perfume . . . not rose or lily of the valley . . . a perfume that iscompound,” presented in a distinctively pared-back glass bottle that would become an icon in its own right.
Presented in two volumes—a book dedicated to the early years of Chanel No. 5 from 1921 to 1945 and a volume exploring the period in which Chanel No. 5 went truly global, from the postwar years to today—ChanelNo. 5explores the evolution of the perfume’s packaging, composition, manufacture, and marketing, with unprecedented access to the Chanel archives and those tasked with creating the fragrance today.
The world’s leading creatives have lent their talents to the perfume’s advertising campaigns, which feature prominently in the book, from photographers such as Richard Avedon and Helmut Newton, to film directors including Ridley Scott and Baz Luhrmann, and stylish muses—Gabrielle Chanel herself, as well as Suzy Parker, Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, Gisele Bündchen, Lily-Rose Depp, and Marion Cotillard. Presented in a high-end package inspired by the original perfume box,ChanelNo. 5will delight lovers of luxury, fashion, and perfume.
During his time as a student at London’s Central Saint Martins, Gibraltar-born British fashion designer John Galliano worked as a dresser at the National Theatre, learning the art of costume and the power of illusion. As a regular in London nightclubs, Galliano met a coterie of artists and colorful personalities, forging strong ties with kindred spirits who would play a decisive role in his career – among which Stephen Jones, who would become Dior’s milliner.
Following the success of his own brand (founded in 1984,) he was appointed Creative Director of ready-to-wear and haute couture at Givenchy in 1995, before joining Dior in 1996 as Artistic Director of the women’s collections. There, he distinguished himself with his extravagant shows that combined eclectic historical and cultural inspirations – a global kaleidoscope of references and unbridled inventiveness, imbued with romanticism and history. The designer’s sensitivity for haute couture know-how and innate sense of the spectacular has garnered him a reputation as a master of the silhouette.
John Galliano has truly reinvented the art – and the very role – of haute couture, redefining its tropes into a new type of contemporary fashion that combines the influences of his travels – whether real or born of his imagination – and the bountiful heritage of Christian Dior. This book highlights the exceptional silhouettes he created for Dior collection after collection from 1996 to 2011, through his most emblematic models, as photographed by Laziz Hamani, alongside shots by Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz, Irving Penn and Paolo Roversi. This singular odyssey is the fifth volume in a new series of books paying tribute to the House’s Artistic Directors.
