Hilary Knight collection, confirmed by his stamp of ownership on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized folio and pervasive illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 157687091X. Buffalo quietly defined the look of 1980s youth culture, especially in the United Kingdom, and this legacy of an uncompromisingly urban-style has since inspired legions of designers, stylists, and photographers. Petri's legacy of style is still alive and making its presence felt on the biggest catwalk of them all: the street. Tight binding.

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
