Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The clothes and accessories we wear and see every day are more than just topics for the fashion literati: they provide rich clues to our personal identity and popular culture. This collection of twenty-eight incisive essays by noted critic and 'fashion anthropologist' Holly Brubach looks at clothing and the fashion industry as barometers of cultural and aesthetic change. In essays published over the past two decades in the New York Times Magazine, the New Yorker and the Atlantic, Brubach reflects on a wide range of subjects, from famous designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Gianni Versace to designer eyeglasses, from the timeless elegance of a Chanel suit to the decline of elegance in the 1990s, and form formal French style to the advent of casual athletic clothing as a fashion uniform. Brubach's witty commentaries weave connections between fashion and the larger world around us, making this an essential book for fashion insiders as well as anyone interested in popular culture and style.

Synopsis:

This collection of 28 fashion essays previously published in "The New York Times Magazine", "The New Yorker" and "The Atlantic" examines clothing and fashion as part of a larger cultural debate and as a barometer of social and aesthetic change.
