MURRAY HILL—Zines might be buzzing within fashion, but Gucci is turning it up a notch with its limited-edition Epiphany coffee table book that's available beginning Thursday, May 5th at Dover Street Market (160 Lexington Ave), according to WWD. Created in collaboration with photographer Ari Marcopoulos, the book chronicles creative director's Alessandro Michele's pre-fall women's and men's collections. The $65 hardcover is very on-trend, enclosed in a magenta bubble wrap envelope with a holographic snake sticker and a black silk screen-printed Gucci logo on the back. Grab yours tomorrow to get a copy signed by Marcoloulos — see details above.
