Leandra Medine AKA Man Repeller To Bring Out A Book Of Fashion Memories!

01 August 2012 by

Ask a fashion girl if she remembers that eureka moment upon discovering Leandra Medine’s blog  - The Man Repeller - and you'll receive positive squeals. Leandra, a New York girl with a major enthusiasm for fashion, dissected and celebrated all of those wardrobe items that guys simply don’t get: Harem pants? Flatforms? Cat prints? Pajamas? Geek glasses? Gladiators? Its mind boggling stuff for 99 per cent of heterosexual boys, and she's made one very cool living out of enjoying these room-dividing fashion moments, while being bloomin’ funny about it.

Since April 2010 she’s cemented herself as one of key players in the blogosphere and as such, she’s been tapped for her creative talents and distinctive voice for numerous exciting projects. As well as being a regular street-snapped star on the sidewalks of fashion week (and Grazia’s Style Hunter photographed her at this year’s Coachella festival), she’s a fashion commentator on TV and has even turned her hand to designing. Her most recent hook-up was with the equally fashion-forward jewellery designing sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder for an ongoing collection called Mr Dannijo. This followed a trés cool collaboration with ultra-hip French brand Maje.  

All that and now she’s bringing out a book! According to an interview with fashion industry website, Business of Fashion this semi-autobiographical book is set to publish around September 2013 (just in time for fashion week, we hope!) and it will chart Leandra’s history of outfits and the memories and moments which they relate to. And judging by the online obsession that surrounded her Marchesa wedding dress earlier this year, we reckon the market will be keen for some Man Repelling in print. Cannot. Wait.
