YOHJI YAMAMOTO, THE BOOK

The definitive retrospective of the master’s work has been thoughtfully edited by V&A museum curator, Ligaya Salazar. Featuring a lengthy interview with Yohji as well as roundtable discussions with his frequent collaborators like Nick Knight, Peter Saville and Marc Ascoli, the book aims to encapsulate the lasting influence and innovative spirit of one of the industry’s true legends. The in-depth tome also features an essay written by his long time collaborator, Masao Nihei, on “some of the wider influences on Yohji Yamamoto’s designs and their presentation.” For any aspiring designers or fans of avant-garde fashion in general, this book is a must.

Available for pre-order at the Victoria & Albert Museum Shop

NEST FRAGRANCES

The right scent can lift your emotions, so when it comes to home fragrance, accept nothing less than the best. Nest Fragrances’ incredible range of diffusers and candles provides users with an uplifting sensory experience. Scents like Moss & Mint, Wasabi Pear and our personal favorite, Moroccan Amber, make any room feel just a little cozier. Several of Nest’s signature scents also come in luxurious bath soaps and for those looking for something beautiful with a social conscience, check out their Blue Garden candle; the crowd pleasing blend of blue hydrangea, hyacinth and forget-me-nots smells wonderful, and a portion of the proceeds go directly to Autism Speaks.

Available at Neiman Marcus & Candle Delirium

EDDIE BORGO BEAR TRAP ACCESSORIES

You have to love a jewelry with a hint of humor: Eddie Borgo gives us bangles and rings based on old-fashioned bear traps. Borgo’s edgy line has always advocated a touch of danger — with bullets, studs and spikes serving as the inspiration for stunning pieces in silver and gold — but the bear traps are an extra cheeky touch.

Available at Eddie Borgo e-shop
