It’s haute couleur: The phenomenon of adult coloring books meets the world of fashion in The Look, a compelling fantasy tour showing scenes of chic, trendy life on the streets of the world’s style capitals.

The clothes, the hair, the accessories (including French bulldogs and graphic skateboards), the poses, the attitude, the look—here is page after page of extraordinarily detailed and lifelike line drawings of stunning women and men, young and old, wearing beautiful, stylish outfits, each image like a fashion shoot, each waiting to be colored. A ripped T-shirt and jeans in Antwerp. Animal prints and fedoras in Milan. Bold pattern-mixing on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Window-shopping in the Sixth, strolling along Shanghai’s Bund. Coloring lets the reader play designer, experimenting with colors, orchestrating different contrasts and shades. It’s the perfect impulse book and gift for everyone who reads Vogue, follows The Sartorialist, watches Project Runway, and lives for fashion—and wants all the pleasurable, meditative benefits of coloring, too.
