we took a wrong turn on our way to the tate last saturday and ended up at Idea Books. basically a dream destination for photo book and magazine junkies like myself.
i have wanted this juergen teller book for a while..it wasn't too expensive and i HAD TO HAVE IT. it was published in 1996, all the portraits are from the early 90s and they are SO FUCKING GOOD.
look. at. linda.
do you fucking DIE?!
she was givin face like NOBODY'S BIDNESS.
i hate that she looks all botox-y now, it makes my heart hurt a lil.
super iconic courtney love shoot, doy.
i feel like i remember this from SPIN but maybe not?
basically the sartorial inspiration for my junior & senior years of high school.
the real star of this book is kristen.
the pictures of her are so incredibly SICK.
the series above, the nudes with the lipstick are so so good. so off and twisted.
i feel like it's hard to appreciate juergen's style these days when everyone in the universe is a copycat but looking through this book you realize when it's GOOD it's fucking great.
more spreads with chloe, vivienne westwood, and kate moss on my tumblr. go see!!
i didn't buy a thing from topshop, just spent my cash at the bookstores in london and i couldn't be happier. more to come in the next week.
