The man behind EY! Magateen and Candy, Luis Venegas, and J.W. Anderson have teamed up on “The Rain In Spain Stays Mainly In The Plain.” The 130-page photo book presents archival and current pieces from Anderson’s eponymous line. For the project, Venegas “was given total creative freedom,” which, he says, “to try something new, not just my usual work as an Editor.”

Beyond working in overlapping spheres, the two creators share a geographical connection: Venegas is based in Madrid, Spain, and, in 2013, Anderson took the reins as creative director of the Spanish brand Loewe.

The limited-edition photographic tome is available at the recently opened J.W. Anderson Workshops in London’s Shoreditch neighbordhood. The 599 copies are priced at $65, a piece, and also available online at j-w-anderson.com
