Luella Bartley Spending Downtime Writing Book

>> Is book curating the new way for designers to bide time between jobs? First Olivier Theyskens, whose work is due out next month, and and now Luella Bartley, who lost her investor and manufacturer in November, is working on a book.

Tentatively titled Luella's Guide to English Style, the book was originally supposed to be published last Fall, but was put on hold after Bartley's time commitments prevented deadlines from being made. Now, with her label in the balance and thus more time on her hands, Luella has taken up the project again and hopes to publish the work in September 2010, in time for Spring 2011 London Fashion Week.

According to her publishers, Fourth Estate: "Unfortunately she couldn't deliver on time before but now we've decided on September. She's doing all the writing herself. It's a style guide."  The content will be divided between English street style and British style icons. "It's not going to be just a book about fashion. It's a work of social anthropology."
