Modemanifestet – De Stilsmartas Handbok (Fashion Manifesto: The
Style-smart Handbook) is a collaborative effort with New York based
fashion journalist Sofia Hedström & photographer Anna Schori for
this fashion manifesto for the modern age – how to be stylish on a
budget and re-invent / re-work beloved old clothes into new.
The book includes a foreward by Vivienne Westwood, a nice personal
touch with the month-by-month diary of Sofias year without fashion,
beautifully shot portraits to accompany the 'recipes', a whole host of
tips collated from old books in the margins, and space for notes at the
end of each chapter.
Hardhat worked closely with Anna & Sofia to create something
that is both modern & graphic, but with a definite nod to the
cookbooks of old, & wartime political artwork. Design for the cover
& all internal spreads, as well as all the hand-drawn illustrations
found throughout the book, were all produced by the Hardhat team.
