In the winter, sometimes all you want to do is avoid the bustling nightlife and instead settle in for a cosy night in under the blankets. Thanks to online streaming and the internet, we have an overwhelming amount of choice to binge watch any TV show or movie we like. However, winter is often the month that brings with it an old friend: the pastime of digging into a good book.
The fashion industry brings with it a plethora of authors, illustrators and creatives that produce quality reading material, leaving us generously spoiled for choice on books. Whether they’re a biography on a figure themselves, a recount of an integral decade in style or an elaborate look book detailing a prominent collection, we can guarantee there’s a book out there for you to indulge in this winter.
