From Sophia Amoruso, the New York Times-bestselling author of #GIRLBOSS, a lushly illustrated embodiment of the collective spirit of the Nasty Gal brand, Sophia's own personal brand, and girlbosses everywhere, with a foreword by Courtney Love. Warning: this is not a style book. It's not about how to mix prints--it's about how to leave yours on everything you touch. Highly graphic and visual, filled with illustrations, photos and short essays, Nasty Galaxy is part scrapbook, part inspo-journey, with moments of frivolity scattered throughout. Tactical and entertaining, envelope-pushing and conventional, surprising and refreshingly straightforward, Nasty Galaxy is a dive into Sophia's philosophies on work, relationships, balance, friendships, and more. It is a celebration of her roots in vintage clothing, punk attitude, fringe characters, and don't-give-a-fuck thought leadership. Nasty Galaxy is Amoruso's newest life bible, approaching style, music, philosophy, and advice in the same way #GIRLBOSS approached business--unconventionally. Oversized and in full color, this is the newest, coolest, must-have accessory.

L'une était décoratrice : Christiane Montadre. Le deuxième, peintre : Desmond Knox-Leet. Le troisième, décorateur et administrateur de théâtre : Yves Coueslant. Trois amis décidés à exploiter leur commune sensibilité artistique pour ouvrir une boutique à leur image : ce sera diptyque, fondé en 1961 au 34, boulevard saint-germain, dans le quartier Maubert à Paris. Ils sont inspirés par leur origine (Desmond Knox-Leet est anglais), leur expérience (Yves Coueslant est imprégné de culture théâtrale), leurs goûts de la découverte et de l'originalité, nourris de voyages, qu'ils multiplieront pour dénicher l'objet rare en Extrême-Orient, en Grèce, en Ecosse ou ailleurs. Ils forment un noyau créatif exceptionnel et construisent la personnalité de leur marque, définie - c'est inédit à l'époque - par un logo, une typo particulière, le noir et blanc, l'ovale. leur boutique est une caverne d'Ali Baba : tissus, bougies, jouets, objets ethniques, produits anglais (parfums, savons, vinaigres de toilette, pots-pourris...), créés ou récoltés partout dans le monde. dès les premières années, ils s'imposent et font la mode. Le livre d'Elisabeth de Feydeau est à la fois le récit de cette aventure et le portrait des trois personnalités qui l'ont vécue.
