SELF-STYLED is a gorgeous coffee table book about the celebration of freedom of expression, diversity and individualism through personal style.

Showcasing photographic diptychs of a select group of fabulous urbanites, each double-page spread illustrates a unique personal choice while implicitly exploring themes such as gender, color, body shape and taste.

 The concept behind SELF-STYLED is simple: each person is asked to choose two outfits – one that represents daywear and a second that represents nightwear. Then, through a dual photographic portrait, author Anthony Lycett encapsulates their distinctive personalities in a stylist-free zone as they are: self-styled.
Since embarking on the project in 2008, Anthony has photographed people from all walks of life. His ever-growing body of work provides a fascinating overview of the multifaceted vibrancy of urban cultures and subcultures.
