Fashion outlet sells rare women's sneakers and literary classics with DIY covers

Marketing itself more as an outlet for rare women’s sneakers, rockstar is basically a slice of Haji Lane style in Cineleisure. But it’s nice to see that aside from overpriced ‘indie’ knickknacks and homeware, it carries a few books too.

These are slick reprinted editions favoured by image-conscious hipsters; they also have a series of literary classics (a Brontë here, a Dickens there) whose plain DIY covers triggered violent emotions about drawing pretentious doodles on books as an insidious marketing gimmick.

More worthy of your attention is their horror-themed selection of Penguin Pocket Classics short stories with matchy-matchy graphic covers, including HP Lovecraft’s infamous The Dunwich Horror and Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death. Alexis Ong
