Luella´s Guide

Luella´s Guide to English Style is a beautiful book made by the British designer Luella Bartley. Stella love the cover that has an old school look with a neon pink elastic band to seal it - a really nice combination. Luella shares her inspiration and the book is full of beautiful drawings by Zoe Taylor and pictures of different icons and styles. You can buy the book here.

Cool Patti Smith

Stella magazine can highly recommend the American artist, singer songwriter and poet Patti Smith´s book  "Just Kids". The book captures her life as a young woman coming to New York and meeting the like minded artist Robert Mapplethorpe
Patti Smith describes the day that Mapplethorpe created his exquisitely androgynous image of her in white shirt, black pants and black jacket for the cover of her “Horses” album.
