Skirt Chronicles, 2021. Softcover, 144p., 6 x 8.5 inches
The Skirt Chronicles is a Paris-based publication by Sarah de Mavaleix, Sofia Nebiolo and Haydée Touitou that was launched in March 2017 at Librairie Yvon Lambert in Paris. Granting the same importance to photography as it does to the written word, The Skirt Chronicles is a title exploring literature, fashion, culture and beyond.
Fully embodied for the first time by Charlotte Rampling, we chose to show a face and a pair of eyes on the cover. The face of she who illuminates what it means to be a woman. The Skirt Chronicles aspire everyday to the elegance, grace, and strong will she emanates.
The elegance of Setsuko’s Bureau, the Graces of Ofelia’s poetry, and the strong will found in The Archer. Building upon traditions with Kengo, looking up in Beaugrenelle, and exploring Hydra with the Mardens, Volume VIII ebbs and flows like cryptocurrency.
