Roversi’s first book. Very rare and super beautiful featuring a lot of private work and including his earliest collaborations with Romeo Gigli, which are not so well known to a wider audience. Considered by insiders to be rather groundbreaking, Roversi’s work with Gigli came at a crossroads in the mid eighties, where a new simplicity was beginning to be established. There are a few known faces- Kirsten Owen springs to mind, but most of the models were unknown and found on the streets of Paris and London by either Gigli or Roversi Himself.
