Façade Magazines at Idea Books


Idea Books, the international wholesaler of contemporary art and design publications, has re-released issues of the iconic title Façade – a French fashion magazine from the late 1970s and early 1980s.

To be sold in designer boutiques across London, New York, Los Angeles and Paris, this ‘boutique bookstore’ trend continues to be one of the leading innovations of in-store fashion retail.

Past Façade cover stars include actors Charlotte Rampling, Jack Nicholson, Sophia Loren and Gerard Depardieu, with inspiring advertising and editorials from photographer and graphic artist Philippe Morillon. Contributions also came from models Erica Lennard and Ellen Von Unwerth, and fashion designers Yves St Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, and Pierre et Gilles.

can be found at Dover Street Market in London, and Bookmarc in New York and Los Angeles, retailing at £150 ($240).
