Collecting Fashion: Nostalgia, Passion, Obsession

Published by Rizzoli New York, Collecting Fashion: Nostalgi, Passion, Obsession is an indispensable survey of the most important archival collections assembled by Alexandra Carl with contributions by Angelo Flaccavento and Dr. Dimitrios Tsivrikos.

This book gathers the preeminent collections of archival obsessives, capturing the closets of an impressive list of fashion and design talent. Readers will get an in-depth look at Michèle Lamy’s extensive Comme des Garçon archive, Sarah Andelman’s covetable (and colorful) sneaker and t-shirt collection, ENDYMA's growing Helmut Lang archive, Zaha Hadid’s fabulous footwear assemblage, and more. This tome, over 300 pages long, painstakingly showcases the subject’s archive while showing off top-tier labels and hard-to-obtain seasons: Issey Miyake, Maison Martin Margiela, Thierry Mugler, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen, among others, and serves as an indispensable reference for those interested in fashion history and building their own archive.

Collecting Fashion: Nostalgia, Passion, Obsession released in April 2024.
