I was in Miami this weekend for Art Basel and had the chance to attend the book signing for Bruce Weber’s new book “Sex and Words”.
Of course I was thinking about my readers and thought “How can I use this opportunity to benefit them and thank them for all their support?” then I got an idea A CONTEST!
A really easy contest that everyone can participate in.
Here it is
in the comments section of this post please respond to the following
“What has most inspired your personal style?”
This could be your Grandma, or a movie, a band, a designer or whatever.
I think it will be really interesting to read what inspires your style plus you can win a really cool book.
IMPORTANT – please leave your response in the comments section and then copy it and email it to me so I can match it up and send the prize to the right person. I will not post a response until I receive the email .
Please put CONTEST in the subject line
The Winner will be announced on Dec. 20th ( in time for Holiday gift giving or receiving)
I will begin with my response
Giorgio Armani ads of the 80′s were incredibly influential on my early style development. The ads then were mostly shot by Aldo Fallai and were so beautiful (usually black & white). I could relate to what I was seeing in the ads, they were full of people and place that kinda looked like my life – only better.
This is how the Bruce Weber website describes the book:
?Sex and Words? is a limited-edition book of Bruce Weber photographs inspired by the writings of D.H. Lawrence. In the context of Weber?s catalogue of publications, this delicate volume features a unique construction. Sixteen black and white and three color plates are juxtaposed with selections from ?Lady Chatterley?s Lover,? ?Women in Love? and ?Sons and Lovers.? Adjacent pages within the volume are interspersed with illustrated vellum sheets that play off the naturalism and sensuality of the photos and text.
This is a limited print run of 2000 books
ps for those of you that don’t win but still want the book I have two other signed copies that I will auction off especially for The Sartorialist readers on Ebay.
I will place the link here when it is set
