Here are my top picks:
Jimmy Choo Story: Power, Profits And The Pursuit Of The Perfect Shoe
The Towering World of Jimmy Choo examines the world's seemingly insatiable appetite for luxury goods by telling the behind-the-scenes tale of one of the most talked-about brands of our age. Jimmy Choo was a London shoemaker with clients including Princess Diana when Tamara Yeardye, a London society girl, convinced him to launch a factory-produced luxury shoe line. Twelve years later, Jimmy Choo is a household name, and Tamara still presides over what is now one of the most successful luxury brands in the world.
Manolo's New Shoes
The follow up companion to the bestselling Manolo Blahnik Drawings, this book presents a brand new collection of Manolo's celebrated shoe designs. The book is organized thematically to express Manolo Blahnik's vision. A glorious pictorial feast that will double as a coffee table book.
The Blood Countess
