What better way to usher in the new menswear collections than with a tribute to Oscar Wilde’s  A Picture of Dorian Gray? The novel was reissued Four Corners Books in a magazine format entitled “A Young Man of Extraordinary Personal Beauty”. The cover is in an unusual shade of sky blue but I’ve presented it here in monotone. I treasure it so much that I still keep it in its original cellophane sleeve. The artwork was by Gareth Jones and the book was designed by John Morgan.
