If ever there was a time to not judge a book by its cover, this is it. This bland design does not do justice to the eccentricities inside.
Allow me to guide you through the world of MisShapes by Geordon Nicol, $17. It houses a collection of fashion portraits from 2002-2007 taken in MisShapes' night club in New York City. Looks range from punk rockers to artists, downtown kids to musicians, DJs and even celebrities like Agyness Deyn and Chloe Sevigny. There are over 2,000 images so plenty to draw inspiration from!
Side note: I attended a MisShapes party a few years ago and I must say, while the music was bumpin', so was the crowd — literally. It was super over crowded. I know it was the club-to-be but that doesn't mean one shouldn't practice occupancy allowance. They could learn from Studio 54's infamous door policy. Just saying.
