Ver­sace/ave­don: I’m ob­sessed with this sem­i­nal fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy book. When you flick through it you see so many cam­paign ref­er­ences. Me­gas­tar by Richard Bernstein: I’ve got nearly 1,000 books but if I had to save one it would be Me­gas­tar. I col­lect Bernstein’s In­ter­view cover il­lus­tra­tions; I’ve got about 20 lith­o­graphs, framed, which I found on ebay. Last year I went to an ex­hi­bi­tion where I bought the Deb­bie Harry cover signed by Tru­man Capote and Andy Warhol. Disco Years by Ron Galella: all Galella’s clas­sic pic­tures from Stu­dio 54 – I use it for ref­er­ence. Fash­ion Baby­lon by Imo­gen Edwards-jones, and Di­ary of a Chav by Grace Dent: I love trashy chick lit. I first read Fash­ion Baby­lon, a sort of ex­posé of the fash­ion in­dus­try, years ago, when I had just started work­ing, and I recog­nised a few names. I read it again re­cently and it gave me the sweats be­cause I recog­nised so many. Mem­phis by Bar­bara Radice: I bought a Mem­phis desk a few years ago from Paul Smith’s gallery. I’d love to col­lect more Mem­phis fur­ni­ture, but I think it’s a ‘once ev­ery 10 years’ kind of thing. Mr Men: I did a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mr Men and they gave me a big chunk of books. My favourite is Mr Quiffy, but af­ter him, Mr Scrib­ble is pretty strong. Denim Dudes by Amy Lev­er­ton, and Club Kids: From Speakeasies to Boom­box and Be­yond: this is re­ally ego­tis­ti­cal, but these two books are on my shelf be­cause I’m in them. A friend pho­tographed me in Acne jeans for Denim Dudes, and Club Kids has pic­tures of me at Boom­box [a night­club in east Lon­don] with Alice Del­lal. It’s a funny book be­cause it’s very much of a time.
