The perfect coffee table book.

Words by

Giulia Brugliera

If you're looking for a coffee table book to make yourself look cooler, stop. We found it. The end.

Linda Watson's Fashion Visionaries is the perfect size, looks super classy and is full of bite size fashion biographies so that you can impress your friends with all your fashion knowledge. From cover to cover it reads as a timeline of legendary designers such as Thierry Hermès to Yohji Yamamoto, giving a brief history of the designer and their brand.

Bonus points go out for the double page per designer format, meaning it's easy to pick up and read from wherever.

Yep, perfect coffee table book.
