Donald The Book

I first discovered Donald Robertson the same way as many of you did too – through Instagram. Known simply as @drawbertson to his hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, has quickly become the fashion world’s favorite art bomber. What everyone loves about Donald is his fresh approach to fashion and fashion illustration. What I love about his work is his use of gaffer tape as high art. Most notably his work is always humorous and very sharp. Robertson has worked in collaborations with it-brands like Smashbox and high end retailers including Bergdorf Goodman. Earning himself the moniker “the Andy Warhol of Instagram,” Robertson is celebrated as an inspiration by members of the fashion and art worlds.

This book (his second but most comprehensive of his work) monograph will feature the very best of his artwork as well as original work created especially for this title. Featuring playful anecdotes and quotes from industry leaders, fashion designers, and his many collaborators and muses, Donald is already a collector’s item.

The book is available for pre-order and will launch on September 15th from Assouline for $85 USD

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
