Farfetch Curates: Food, Collection by Assouline Publishing
Farfetch, the e-commerce destination that houses over 300 independent fashion and lifestyle boutiques from across the world, has collaborated with Assouline to publish its thoughts on food. Considering itself more than just a one-stop shop for the fashion forward, Farfetch is now seeking to establish itself as the curator of a whole lifestyle. Farfetch Curates: Food is the first of a series of three lifestyle guides to be followed by Farfetch Curates: Design and Farfetch Curates: Art. This first release is written by seasoned fashion commentator Tim Blanks, who has travelled the globe garnering the lowdown on everything from oysters in Belgium, pastries in Paris, foraged food in the North of Sweden to street-food in Singapore, picking up all the latest essential trends in food and drink. Viewed through the prism of the fashion world, there is a strong emphasis on the intersection between food design and art, making the book visually striking.
