This is the rare edition of the A&F Quarterly, Abercrombie and Fitch's hardcover catalog featuring the work of Bruce Weber, the company's favorite photographer, whose images have graced many of their ad campaigns. It features photos of semi-nude male and female models, and thus has been controversial and only distributed by the London A&F store in Westminster. From the Victoria & Albert Museum: "Bruce Weber is the best known exponent of a style of male glamor which was highly influential in the fashion world during the 1980's. Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld and Ralph Lauren have all employed his talents to define their brand image. Weber's chiseled models are sexy yet innocent, sculptural but relaxed, and create an image of clean-cut, all-American athleticism. It is the human factor in Weber's fashion images which is dominant, rather than the clothing; and his choice of models defines his style as much as his carefully controlled lighting."It features photos of nude and semi-nude male and female models, and thus has been controversial and only distributed by the London Abercrombie & Fitch store in Westminster, UK.
