Yasmin Le Bon launches style book
Yasmin Le Bon launched a new style book in collaboration with Heathrow Airport on Monday (26.10.15).
Yasmin has written the introduction for the coffee table tome 'A Journey In Style,' which was created to mark the completion of a three year programme to bring some of the world's most desirable luxury brands to Terminal 5 at the London airport.
Commenting on the book, Yasmin said: "There's something fabulously glamorous about flying that has always fascinated me and to this day I still get excited about travelling. From the starlets of the 50s stepping onto the runway in their oversized sunglasses and trollies stacked with monogrammed luggage, to today's style icons, air travel has always been packed with stylish possibility.
"The book includes stunning archive images from some of the world's most renowned photographers, including Dennis Stone, Heathrow's resident photographer since 1946 - and there's even one or two of myself in there! It's been hugely enjoyable working with the team to celebrate the unique relationship between style and flying and to see the book come together. I'll definitely be keeping a copy on my coffee table."
Fashion Editor, Elizabeth Walker is Art Director of the book, which includes 160 images, capturing and celebrating the glamour of air travel from stylish departures and statement arrivals through to the chicest of destinations.
Stars including Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Mick Jagger, The Beatles, Kate Moss and Queen Elizabeth all feature.
Jonathan Coen, Retail Director at Heathrow said: "Heathrow and fashion have long gone hand-in-hand, as the launch of 'A Journey in Style' proves. While we've always been known for the quality of our retail experience, our recent programme has expanded our luxury fashion and accessories offering to 23 premium stores, rivalling some of the most exclusive shopping destinations in the UK."
'A Journey in Style' is available at Amazon.co.uk and at the T5 Art Gallery at Heathrow Airport for £15, with proceeds going to charity Oxfam.
