Kylie Minogue celebrates 25th anniversary with style book
Published 30/10/2012 | 11:33
Australian pop star Kylie Minogue is set to release a coffee table tome called 'Kylie/Fashion'.
Throughout her career, 44-year-old Kylie Minogue has been recognised as much for her style as she has for her chart-topping music. From those gold hot pants to that white jumpsuit, she's now set to take a look back over the wardrobe choices that have come to characterise the various eras of her 25-year career.
The coffee table book, titled Kylie/Fashion , has been curated by William Baker, the pop star's long-standing creative director, and features an introduction written by Jean Paul Gaultier, with whom she has worked many times. Additionally, it includes texts by the likes of Dolce & Gabbana - who created the outfits for her 2011 'Aphrodite' tour - Christopher Kane, Giles Deacon, Christian Louboutin and Stella McCartney.
"This book charts my relationship with some of the most talented people in fashion throughout my career," says Minogue. "It makes me very proud to see gathered together all the great designers and houses I've worked with over the years. Looking through my personal archives has been a real trip down memory lane and it is the fashion that brings back moments and memories of the last twenty-five years."
The book follows Minogue's sartorial journey from 'Locomotion', to 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head', to her most recent world tour, 'Aphrodite'. Featuring iconic images as well as unseen archive photographs, fashion sketches and video stills, Kylie/Fashion is just part of Minogue's year-long 'K25' anniversary celebrations, which have also included the orchestral re-release of some of her most-loved hits.
Kylie/Fashion is released on November 19, published by Thames & Hudson.
