(Art)Books we love | Christmas presents for fashion lovers 

Just one week until Christmas! I have no idea how that could’ve happened to be honest, totally lost track of time in the last weeks. As time flies these days I have three books for you this week. They’re all perfect gifts for fashion lovers, male and female. So if you’re still in need for some presents these books might be your solution.

Menswear Dog presents The New Classics

This is for all the guys who love fashion just like we do. For man who know the difference between a tux and a suit 😉 Born from the Tumblr “Menswear Dog” this book presents classic items and how to combine them for every style and season. The star of the book is Bodhi, the Shiba Inu who belongs to the two authors. So whatever your style dilemma, dog’s got your back! Readers will learn what to wear to a summer wedding, when to splurge (on the perfect white dress shirt) and when to save (snag your military field jacket at a thrift store), the secrets to getting the right fit, the brands that stand the test of time, the basics of clothing care, and more.

This is a perfect gift for brothers and guys with style and the right kind of humor!

Das kleine Buch für die gut gekleidete Ehefrau

Yes girls this book was written for wifes which is one of the funniest things ever for me. But it’s a classic one. It was published originally in 1959 by fashion icon Anne Fogarty and that explains a lot 😉 The beautiful little book with a linen binding is finally available in a German reissue! As I think there are some great and awesome fashion hints in there I put it on this present list. And who knows maybe you have a lot just married friends like me who love fashion and have some sense of humor.

In this lovingly designed vintage book, the designer tells the art of putting together the right outfit, warns against the worst fashion faux pas, and reveals many helpful tips and tricks that not only ensure a successful look, but also harmony in the marriage. “The well-dressed wife” comes with many magical illustrations in the luggage and is a true treasure in the bookshelves of all fashion-inspired vintage fans.

This is the perfect gift for all your married female friends who love fashion.

My Lifestyle Diary

The last recommendation on my list today is for all your creative friends. It’s pink and for the girly girls if you know what I mean. It’s something between a coloring book and a diary, but it also includes a lot more: romantic illustrations, double-page colorings, plenty of space for personal notes and lists, quotes, style tips, inspirations for a detox day or a chocolate cake recipe that sweeps gray days. The renowned illustrator and graphic designer Iris Olschewski has created a magical companion for girls and women who love their creativity. Inspired by the beautiful things of life, the glamour of the 40s and 50s and the international fashion scene the book accompanies its owner through spring, summer, autumn and winter.

I know exactly who will get this for Christmas and I am sure you know this kind of girl, too.
