Update your Bookshelf: The Latest Fashion Reads

Be it a publication documenting a top designer's inspirations or a how-to guide for creating super cool talons, you can’t beat a great fashion book. For creative motivation or an engrossing read, the NICA team share their favourite fashion books of the moment.

Love or loathe him, The World According to Karl gives readers a 176 page insight into the outspoken world of Karl Lagerfield as he openly shares his views on politics, fashion, art and women. Bold and brash yet always entertaining, this fashion designer is certainly not one to mince his words. 

Expect controversial quotes such as “Jogging pants are a sign of defeat. You’ve lost control of your life so you go out in jogging pants.” Ooh err!

WAH started life back in 2005 as a small East-London based nail bar. The salon opened to a rapturous reception and soon marked its territory as one of the most exciting and innovative nail bars on the planet. Nail art has since become a worldwide phenomenon with every fashionista worth their salt queuing up to join the ranks. 

Now the company have opened up the bar to keen DIYers by releasing The Wah Nails Book of Nail Art, so, whether you wish to paint bows or zebras onto your nails, now you can get the salon certified talons at lemonade prices, without even leaving the comfort of your own home. Practice makes perfect!

Alexa Chung leads a fun life; a quick peek at her Instagram reveals stylish jaunts in classic cars and sophisticated sips of wine in the company of Peaches and Pixie Geldof...It’s enough to make anyone a little green with envy! In her first book titled IT, Alexa documents her daily inspirations, obsessions and shares fashion tips through the medium of doodles, glossy photographs and handwritten notes. This might just be the best looking book on the market.

Do you have a list of top fashion books which are always displayed pride of place upon your bookshelf? If so, we’d love to hear your recommendations. Why not let us know on Twitter by tweeting your recommendation to @Nica_Handbags
