BARBARA'S BAZAR EDITION

2 pledges

Barbara Mullen didn’t have any ordinary retirement; instead, she opened a fashion boutique in Klosters, just as the resort embarked on its jet-set heyday. Frequented by royalty and movie stars, Barbara’s Bazar was one of the first stores to champion designers like Sonia Rykiel, Emanuel Ungaro and Kenzo. To celebrate her biography, Unbound are producing a limited-edition fine art print of the boutique’s playful advertising poster, starring Barbara (and her Vidal Sassoon bob) as drawn by illustrator Gail Kernan. Subscribers will also receive a hardback first edition of The Replacement Girl and their name in the back.
