Wallpaper City Guides: Fashion

When travelling, the last thing you want to do is lug around an oversized, tattered copy of Lonely Planet, especially when all you plan to do is shop. Phaidon’s Wallpaper City Guides have been providing travelers with insider tips for years and now they have a new box-set devoted to fashion.


When travelling, the last thing you want to do is lug around an oversized, tattered copy of Lonely Planet, especially when all you plan to do is shop. Phaidon’s Wallpaper City Guides have been providing travelers with insider tips for years and now they have a new box-set devoted to fashion.

Five of the world’s fashion capitals – New York, London, Milan, Paris and Tokyo – each have a guide for the “dedicated fashionista and the style-conscious shopper.” As with all the Wallpaper City Guides, each edition is tightly edited and compiled by Wallpaper’s editors and correspondents, who more often than not live in the highlighted cities. In other words, they really know what they are talking about.

The fashion box-set comes in a bright blue box, tied with a ribbon and is available for around $49.75. Since their release in late 2008, the box-set has been widely sold out but you can currently back-order them from Borders or by a secondhand copy on Amazon. Think of it as your fashion passport!

    Very cool and totally necessary. Next time I go abroad, I’ll need to look into picking these up.
