Grace Coddington takes over the Harrods window. We've had many fantastic window displays dedicated to Phaidon books over the years but that didn't stop us getting a thrill when we saw the latest - for Grace Coddington's new book, Grace: The American Vogue Years - which was unveiled in the window of Harrods, London, last night.

Suzanne Koller of French Vogue Publishes a Book of Her Work. Can your nerves stand it?

Suzanne Koller of French Vogue Publishes a Book of Her Work

No, nor mine. Those good people at Idea, David Owen and Angela Hill, asked Suzanne Koller, the brilliant Fashion Director of French Vogue and cofounder of Self Service, to publish a book of her work from the past couple of decades. She said yes. It’s called Red Lips, Attitudes, and Other Obsessions and it’s available from September 9.

But—here’s the nerve-racking part—it’s limited to, uh-oh, 500 copies. When David came to you with the idea, what did you think? Did they give you limits on how many images you could select? They have quite a renegade spirit in terms of their approach to publishing. . . . I think both the material they publish and how they publish are really interesting because they kind of create an event around every book they do. Even though they’re not big, heavy books, they never feel throwaway. It’s almost like a zine approach. So you were saying the images are edited for now. . . .

The movie, which will be screened on Sept. 2, includes interviews with Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann and Courtney Love, among others.

The Creative Class, People. PARIS, France — Trains, until very recently, weren’t Pamela Golbin’s cup of tea.

The Creative Class, People

She much prefers to fly. In fact, Golbin loves flying, perhaps a remnant of a childhood spent in airborne commute between Paris, Caracas, Miami and Buenos Aires, the cities in which her Franco-Chilean family resided at various times. “I love, love, flying — the longer the flight, the better. Time is suspended when you are in the air, it’s like a parenthesis, and you can do anything you want.

Plus, I have no problem sleeping on the plane and never get jet-lag, so I am fully operational when I arrive,” Golbin says.
