Gwen is featured in a new book published by Laurence King titled Fashion + Music: Fashion Creatives Shaping Pop Culture, by London-based writer Katie Baron. The book delves into her relationship and partnership with Andrea Lieberman, behind most of Gwen’s iconic looks during the Love.Angel.Music.Baby. and The Sweet Escape eras.
The book goes into detail with quotes from Andrea about the love and inspirations Gwen drew from during that time and show she paved the way for female artists to come. The album artwork for Love.Angel.Music.Baby., created by legendary British image-maker Nick Knight, is described perfectly as a “semi-surreal flashy reverie that mixes the candy-colored world of Disney with a darker and more eroticized Harajuku underbelly — a lucid illustration of Lieberman and Stefani’s idiosyncratic sensibility.”
Below is a quick overview provided to us as well as sample photos from the book itself of Andrea Lieberman’s chapter.
Written by former Dazed and Vogue contributor and trend forecaster, Katie Baron, the book gives a unique insight into how fashion and music, working as twin agents, have reflected but also influenced popular culture. It features exclusive interviews with the creatives behind some of the most iconic and era-defining looks of musicâ€™s greatest heroes, including Gwen. It explores the power of fashion as a make-or-break tool within the music industryâ€™s creative process and gives context to the sound.â€‹
Fashion + Music would be a fantastic addition to all fans’ collections and it’s incredible to see Gwen recognized and included alongside fellow icons in the industry. You can purchase the book now courtesy of LaurenceKing.com for $50.00.
