Publisher's Description

This gorgeously produced book features intimate, never-before-published portraits of Kate Moss, taken in the early 1990s by her then-boyfriend, Italian photographer Mario Sorrenti. The photographs gave life to Calvin Klein's famous Obsession campaign, which launched Moss to international superstardom. (Calvin Klein's recent advertising for his new fragrance, Obsessed, will also feature Sorrenti's 1993 Kate Moss photographs and video.)

Sumptuously reproduced in tritone and presented in a cloth-covered clamshell box, Kate is a stunning photographic portfolio of one of contemporary culture's most iconic figures. It includes tipped-on images on the book and clamshell box's covers, plus an introductory essay by Sorrenti, which puts the work in its uniquely personal context.

This book, which celebrates the dawn of two legendary careers, and the start of the highly influential aesthetic of 1990s fashion photography, is a must-have for Kate Moss fans, for fashion devotees, and for lovers of traditional portraiture and fashion photography.
