by Daisy de Villeneuve Forward by Zac Posen Following the glorious international response of “He Said, She Said”which is now out of print, best selling author Daisy de Villeneuve is releasing her second book with the support of Topshop and published by Pocko Editions. Release date: November 2003 THE BOOK: ‘I Told You So’, is a series of short stories about different girls, what they all share in common is that they are of the same type: ‘Bitch’. Partially auto-biographical, Daisy de Villeneuve gives us insights into the twenty-something, singleton world of girls, dating and the cruelty of female friendships. “These girls have somehow ended up entangled in my life and the stories follow my encounters with them; always showing up at the wrong time, rude to my friends, stealing my men and taking what they can get from me. All in the name of innocence? Girls dread girls like this. ‘I Told You So’ is a world where the cat’s claws are poised to scratch the nearest female competitor. Some of us avoid them and others attract them yet along the line, we have all been scratched! ‘…She was psychotic, demented and badly behaved, but it was as if they were oblivious to all of this. She’s the kind of girl that has a big mouth and an opinion, typically clueless opinion.’ DAISY DE VILLENEUVE: Since the publication of ‘He Said She Said’, Daisy’s profile has reached critical mass. Frequently interviewed in art and style magazines from New York, London, Paris and Tokyo, Daisy continues to promote her work with critically acclaimed exhibitions. Her disarming line drawings have drawn rave reviews from a number of critics and have been taken up as a leading light of Topshop’s recent major charm-offensive. TOPSHOP & POCKO ‘I Told You So’ is kindly supported by multi-award winning high street retailer, Topshop. ‘Having worked with Daisy previously on the launch of our shoe collection, we are honored to be able to continue this relationship’ – Jane Shepherdson, Topshop Brand Director. ‘I Told You So’ will be available from selected branches of Topshop and bookstores from November.
