Made by Silly Things, Hong Kong, 2006. Velvet wraps with gold embossing and gilt edges in double sided dustwrapper. Colour photographs. Text in English with Chinese translation laid in. Awesome undercover book published by Cream (who also did an excellent Margiela book - click here for that). Interview, inspirations, sketches, fittings, studio shots, ideas, runway shots. Very much a process oriented monograph.
