Title: The Woman I Wanted to Be

One of the most influential, admired, and innovative women of our time: fashion designer, philanthropist, wife, mother, and grandmother, Diane von Furstenberg offers a book about becoming the woman she wanted to be. Diane von Furstenberg started out with a suitcase full of jersey dresses and an idea of who she wanted to be—in her words, “the kind of woman who is independent and who doesn’t rely on a man to pay her bills.” She has since become that woman, establishing herself as a global brand and a major force in the fashion industry, all the while raising a family and maintaining “my children are my greatest creation.” In The Woman I Wanted to Be, von Furstenberg reflects on her extraordinary life—from childhood in Brussels to her days as a young, jet-set princess, to creating the dress that came to symbolize independence and power for an entire generation of women. With remarkable honesty and wisdom, von Furstenberg mines the rich territory of what it means to be a woman. She opens up about her family and career, overcoming cancer, building a global brand, and devoting herself to empowering other women, writing, “I want every woman to know that she can be the woman she wants to be.”

Title: Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries 2017 Calendar

Back by popular demand, this second Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries Calendar features the always fashionable and glamorous Miss Phryne Fisher, who—packing a pearl-handled pistol—solves murders, fights injustice, and harbors the innocent as she charms good guys and bad in 1920s Melbourne. Based on Kerry Greenwood’s best-selling mysteries, and featuring authentic period details and fashions, its charismatic heroine Phryne (played by Essie Davis) is a liberated woman, unmarried by choice, and as comfortable in high society as she is flying an airplane. She often finds herself confronted with crimes related to social issues and, helped by Detective Jack Robinson (Nathan Page), Constable Hugh Collins (Hugo Johnstone-Burt), her young companion Dot Williams (Ashleigh Cummings), and others in her circle, Miss Fisher saves the day—with a flair for fun, sexual innuendo, and droll dialogue, such as “I do approve of a man who can fight and still maintain his sartorial elegance.”

Title: Back in the days

Back in the Days documents the emerging hip-hop scene from 1980-1989--before it became what is today's billion-dollar international industry. Back in the days, the streets--not the media--set the standards for style & Jamel Shabazz was on the scene, photographing everyday people. Working the streets of New York like the runways of Paris, Shabazz's subjects strike poses that flaunt their Kangol caps & Gazelle glasses, shell-top Adidas & suede Pumas complete with fat laces, shearling coats & leather jackets, gold rope chains, door-knocker earrings, name belts, boomboxes, & other assorted designer finery.

Title: Take Ivy

Described by The New York Times as, “a treasure of fashion insiders,” Take Ivy was originally published in Japan in 1965, setting off an explosion of American-influenced “Ivy Style” fashion among students in the trendy Ginza shopping district of Tokyo. The product of four sartorial style enthusiasts, Take Ivy is a collection of candid photographs shot on the campuses of America’s elite, Ivy League universities. The series focuses on men and their clothes, perfectly encapsulating the unique academic fashion of the era. Whether lounging in the quad, studying in the library, riding bikes, in class, or at the boathouse, the subjects of Take Ivy are impeccably and distinctively dressed in the finest American-made garments of the time.

Take Ivy is now considered a definitive document of this particular style, and rare original copies are highly sought after by “trad” devotees worldwide. A small-run reprint came out in Japan in 2006 and sold out almost immediately. Now, for the first time ever, powerHouse is reviving this classic tome with an all-new English translation. Ivy style has never been more popular, in Japan or stateside, proving its timeless and transcendent appeal. Take Ivy has survived the decades and is an essential object for anyone interested in the history or future of fashion.

Title: Advanced Style

Advanced Style is Ari Seth Cohen’s blog-based ode to the confidence, beauty, and fashion that can only be achieved through the experience of a life lived glamorously. It is a collection of street fashion unlike any seen before—focused on the over-60 set in the world’s most stylish locales. The (mostly) ladies of Advanced Style are enjoying their later years with grace and panache, marching to the beat of their own drummer. These timeless images and words of wisdom provide fashion inspiration for all ages and prove that age is nothing but a state of mind.

Ari Seth Cohen started his blog inspired by his own grandmother’s unique personal style and his lifelong interest in the put-together fashion of vibrant seniors. Each of his subjects sparkles like a diamond after long years spent refining and perfecting their individual look and approach to life. The Advanced Style book will showcase, in luscious full-color, the best of the blog, but will also act as a true guidebook with all-new material featuring wardrobes, interviews, stories, and advice from a cadre of his most chic subjects, along with a large selection of never-before-seen photography—fresh off of sidewalk catwalks around the world!
