Yves Saint Laurent: The Impossible Collection
Step into the world of legendary designer Yves Saint Laurent with the latest addition to its Ultimate Collection. Curated in partnership with French journalist and Yves Saint Laurent connoisseur Laurence Benaïm, the handcrafted volume explores the couturier’s 100 most iconic designs created throughout his impressive 40 year career— from the very first looks that appeared on the runway in his eponymous debut collection in January 1962 to his final couture presentation upon his retirement in 2002. Each dress expresses a portrait of a woman, an attitude, a moment in time. A must read for fashion lovers.
Don't Touch my Hair, Emma Dabiri
Irish-Nigerian author, academic and broadcaster Emma Dabiri's debut book offers a ground-breaking study of how black hairstyling culture can be understood as an allegory for black oppression and ultimately, liberation. A must read from an Irish-Nigerian perspective.
Scenes of a Graphic Nature, Caroline O'Donoghue
For those who enjoy Caroline's podcast Sentimental Garbarge, you will be familiar with her 'whipsmart wit', as Marian Keyes has dubbed it. In this her debut novel we follow the protagonist Charlie from London to rural Ireland where she comes face to face with her family's history. It's a story that tackles Ireland's darkest subjects from a millenial perspective.
A Life on Our Planet, David Attenborough
You have watched the Netflix programme now read the book. Attenborough's powerful witness statement and vision for the future developed from a seven decade career studying wildlife and the natural world is not to be missed, as he says, "We have one final chance to create the perfect home for ourselves and restore the wonderful world we inherited. All we need is the will to do so."
