The photo book, Chloë Sevigny, has just been released by the much revered Rizzoli publishing house. This hardcover volume features photos of everyone’s favourite It girl throughout the sartorial arc of her career, starting in the ‘90s when she epitomized the downtown NYC skater girl look, right through to her current iteration of trendsetting: high fashion Hollywood actress. "The book includes early personal photos of Chloë taken by her high school friends; film stills; modeling appearances for brands such as Miu Miu and Chloé; magazine editorials for Purple, i-D, and The Face by top photographers such as Mark Borthwick, Terry Richardson, and Juergen Teller; and homages by artists such as Elizabeth Peyton and Karen Kilimnik. Additionally, Sevigny shares some of her treasured personal memorabilia, such as casting fliers, Polaroids, zines, and pages from her day planners.” Chloë Sevigny is a must for die-hard fans and those with an interest in contemporary fashion, alike.

Located in Poissy, just outside of Paris, Villa Savoye is considered by many to be one of Le Corbusier's seminal works. The home was designed using the architect's 'five points' method, and is a wonderful example of early modernism. The villa was recently visited by the artist and designer Anna-Sophie Berger and her photographs of the space and its surroundings have now been published online by Purple magazine.

There are a few books I've been hunting for online, however when it comes to ebay it can be a tricky beast. Some days you'll get an incredible deal, and sometimes the item you want will just sit there, for 28 days, 11 hours and 12 minutes. Buy it now. No 'or best offer', not really much of an option. Just waiting for it to run out, while it just waits for your patience to run out.
