Vivienne Westwood Spring Summer 2008 by Juergen Teller 
Fine. Hardcover with dustjacket; 44 pages
1 pounds; 8.5 x 0.5 x 11.2 inches
Funny, sexy, exotic and a bit scandalous, this book brings together all of London-based photographer Juergen Teller's images for Vivienne Westwood's Spring/Summer 2008 campaign. In typical fashion, Teller photographed the collection by creating a highly theatrical mis-en-scène which involved the collaboration of not only the models but the legendary designer herself. Borrowing the theme, The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search For God from George Bernard Shaw's controversial 1932 novel of the same name--which is engagingly excerpted here--this collection has a strangely riveting quality that is enhanced in Teller's suggestive photographs by such props as plantains, tribal masks, tropical birds, machine guns, spears and various exotic animal hides.
