Style Feed is out now: a collection of the world’s top fashion blogs curated by Susie Bubble, with commentary by Dazed Group’s William Oliver, and published in London by Prestel. I found a copy at Page One in Hong Kong and, with my parents, flipped through it with the delight of seeing my work in some bookstore so far away from home. How sweet it is to be included among such blogging greats, and for this, Susie and William, I am tremendously grateful.
Style Feed: curated by Susie Bubble, written by William Oliver, published by Prestel
The book starts off with a very sincere foreword by Susie Bubble, where she talks about how she got started with fashion blogging through the “What are you wearing today” thread on a forum called The Fashion Spot, the same thread that was my pandora’s box to fashion blogging. My favorite quote of Susie’s in the foreword goes: “I joined the fashion blogging party in 2006, awkwardly shuffling my feet with a cup of punch. Over the years the party may have become increasingly busy, but the simultaneously good and bad thing about blogging is that everybody is invited.” Above, some of the first quickly photographed self-shots of Susie to appear online.
Celine queen and cult sensation Jayne of Stop It Right Now is in the book.
Men’s fashion favorites:
Pelayo Diaz of Kate Loves Me
Style Salvage Steve, who I had recently featured
Dapper Kid’s Syed, a kindred spirit in Yohji and Comme, and a paragon of prolific commentary
The Business of Fashion: industry-required reading.
I like how the blogs are arranged by the year they were started. Find me sandwiched between the greats:
Advanced Style, now with a book and movie deal
and everybody’s favorite Jak and Jil
The Dandy Project in Style Feed
