Cramping the Style Book Market

Some breaking news from Stephanie Murg.

Do you have style? Do you enjoy making style-related pronouncements? Do you frequently refer to “pants” and “shoes” in the singular (e.g., “This paisley dickey calls for a flat-front pant”)? Then the time may be right to take your stab at the latest in publishing trends: the style book.

ELLE’s Nina Garcia is still making the rounds with her guide to chic (The Little Black Book of Style), while her “Project Runway” costar Tim Gunn (one of our favorite people) now has both a book and a BRAVO show touted as his guide to style. Meanwhile, today marks the publication of Style A to Zoe, from ur-stylist Rachel Zoe, who always looks as if she’s just stepped away from Palm Beach patio drinks circa 1974. And in a couple of weeks, the editors of InStyle will publish InStyle: Style 101, in which they tackle such topics as how to pose for a photo and how to set up a bar at a party (hint: set up the bar before posing). Not to be outdone, Bazaar gets into the act this November, with Jenny Levin‘s Harper’s Bazaar Great Style.

We have faith that as style guides go, the best is yet to come. Isaac Mizrahi has just signed a deal with Gotham for How to Have Style, his “illustrated guide to looking fabulous for all occasions.” Our fingers are crossed that Mizrahi will recruit Peter Buchanan-Smith as creative director for the project. The two have worked together on Mizrahi’s visually spectacular, occasionally-published magazine, Isaac’s Style Book, which is available for download here. Note to Isaac: send us a galley!

Decoding AIGA NY’s Body/Language

When not moonlighting as an UnBeige contributor, Lindsay Ballant is an art director at Print, where she’s filed a review of Body/Language, the one-day fashion and graphic design conference hosted by AIGA NY.

We like the sheer variety of content, from street art-meets-entrepreneurialism to the raconteurish history of fashion mags–Abbott Miller‘s critique of couture logos seems like it was absolutely hilarious–and although Isaac Mizrahi kept his hands to himself, he delivered at least one juicy quote that helped us remember why we love him so:

“I think you should be able to judge smart people for looking bad like you judge dumb people for not being smart.”

Mizrahi and Millman Are Speaking Our Body/Language

Well, it’s just about the most fabulous idea for a conference that we never thought of. Body/Language, coordinated by the cool kids at AIGA NY, stitches together the oft-coordinating worlds of fashion and graphic design. The stylish Ms. Millman presides, with appearances by Andy Spade, Abbott Miller, Ruth Ansel and many others, including our favorite off-the-cuff designer, Sir Isaac Mizrahi:

“On his passion for the graphic design of fashion”

Uh oh. Debbie, during that tete-a-tete, watch out!

Times Square One Big Target This New Year’s Eve

Target takes on another New York icon, and this time, thousands of innocent bystanders will be unable to avert their eyes from the seductive red bull’s-eyes. NY Daily News reports that come Sunday, Times Square will be “Targetad” (we wish we had come up with that):

The retail giant will distribute 30,000 pairs of 3D glasses along Seventh Ave. and Broadway, between 43rd and 47th Sts., that will transform the extravaganza’s fireworks into glowing “Target bull’s-eyes.”

The glasses will also enable viewers to see Target’s logo coming out of the 1,070-pound ball as it drops on New Year’s Eve.

In an additional tie-in, Target designer Isaac Mizrahi will be gracefully suspended from a nearby building and gently squeeze the ball as it makes its descent.
