Remember the spectacular Gucci presentation of the Resort 2017 collection inside the Cloisters at Westminster Abbey last June 2016? If you didn’t see it, you’ve missed one of the most mystical experiences you can get from a catwalk show. Now you can enjoy it through the lens of renowned British artist and photographer Nick Waplington, in a limited-edition publication titled Blind For Love, published by Assouline, which will be on sale from 1st December.

If you are a fashion lover, a photography enthusiast or both, Blind For Love is guaranteed to please. This beautiful book, released in a limited edition of 2,000 copies, features exclusive images of the run-up to the show, and backstage images during and after the event. The cover depicts a painted portrait of Queen Elizabeth I, which immediately gets you in a historic mood, so fitting for a runway show held in one of London’s most historic landmarks.

Blind For Love will for sure be a much-desired fashion photography book, and it isn’t Waplington’s first one. His photography work for Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2009 collection ‘Horn of Plenty’ – the last staged by the designer before his untimely death – became a coffee table book titled ‘Working Process’, which was released in 2013, accompanied by an exhibition of large-format prints at the Tate in 2015.
Pop in to any Assouline boutique or a speciality store like Dover Street Market, Harvey Nichols at Knightsbridge,  The Vintage Showroom in Covent Garden, or Mackintosh at Conduit Street, London, to make sure you get your copy of Blind For Love. Find your nearest Assouline store here.

Waplington himself will be signing his book at Maison Assouline on 4th December. With your copy in your hands, get comfortable, play “Scarborough Fair” and sing the lyrics of the song, which run as a refrain through the book, enhancing the evocative images of the fabulous artist and photographer that Nick Waplington is.
