Richard Lester's Boutique London

We did run a quick piece on this a few weeks back, but author Richard Lester has been kind enough to send over full details of the forthcoming Boutique London A History: King's Road to Carnaby Street, which is produced by ACC Editions.

The book is a 280-page affair, following the developing fashions and boutiques of the aforementioned streets, with a focus on 30 of their retailers, as well as the clothes and the characters within.

So expect pieces on Mary Quant, John Stephen and Ossie Clark, along with Top Gear, His Clothes, Granny Takes A Trip and Mr Fish to name just a few, plenty of illustrations thrown into the mix too – clothes, interiors and shoppers. I've seen some of the full-page shots and they really do look incredible.

Hopefully a review ahead of the 30th September shelf date, but you can pre-order now at Amazon for £21.21.
