1. The Asylum by Simon Doonan, $26; barneys.com
Simon Doonan is an iconic figure in the New York fashion world. He's not only incredibly funny, but has created some of the most amazing window displays in the history of Barneys, written several equally-as-funny books before this one, and even appeared on Gossip Girl. His latest book, The Ayslum, is full of hilarious tales of Doonan's experiences in the fashion industry, from a Michael Kors show where a ceiling collapsed on Suzy Menkes, to the time the basement at Barneys flooded, along with all of his props.
2. Man Repeller by Leandra Medine, $25; barneys.com
That's right ladies, Leandra Medine, author of the cult-loved blog, The Man Repeller, has penned a book. Based on Medine's experiences with certain outfits, this hilarious read is a collection of personal essays that detail some of the authors major life events (that of course, she remembers by outfit). Buy it. Read it. Laugh. We promise, you'll definitely be entertained.
