Ohh I love this book. It is perfect for the coffee table (must get me one of those).
Amy Allen’s hardback treat is a self confessed fashion obsessive book ‘for the Blahnik brigade’. Despite my not actually wearing Manolo Blahnik’s shoes or being a ‘yummy mummy’ I still enjoyed the silliness and escapist pointlessness of the book.
Allen takes everyday nursery rhymes and rewords them to include Couturiers, Designers, Perfumeries and Jewelers (all the good stuff) like Dior, Gucci, Armani and Cartier. Simple really. The images by Eun-Kyung Kang are where the magic happens. Wispy watercolours depict the dreamy luxury of the book’s focus and quite literally paint just the right kind of picture.
