The Margate Bookshop

This modest enterprise stems from a desire to encourage a larger involvement in reading in a time when the activity of buying and browsing books has become more impersonal.

At the heart of The Margate Bookshop lies the desire for more accessible spaces that feel inviting to a wider audience, through which to promote art and, in particular, literature.

Serge Lutens

Throughout the 1960s, Serge Lutens collaborated with photographers of the likes of Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Bob Richardson. His exquisite blend of fashion and art transcended the pages of magazines and found a home in major artistic institutions such as New York’s Guggenheim Museum. Deeply entrenched in the business of beauty, Lutens’ work has graced the pages of major fashion publications as well as major cosmetic brands.

I do not want to be recognised or famous, I don’t really care about having my name in big letters, the point is to recognise who you are. All I’m talking about is identity – that is all I’ve been talking about my whole life.
— Serge Lutens
