About this title

Synopsis:

The clothes and accessories we wear and see every day are far more than just topics for the fashion literati: they provide rich clues to our personal identity and popular culture. This collection of 28 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 from formal French style to the advent of casual athletic clothing as a fashion uniform. Brubach's witty commentaries weave thought-provoking connections between fashion and the larger world around us, making this an essential book for fashion insiders as well as anyone who may be allured by popular culture and style.

Product Description:

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. In essays published during the 1980s and 1990s, the author reflects on a broad range of fashion subjects, from famous designers to designer eyeglasses, from the elegance of a Chanel suit to the decline of elegance itself in the 1990s, from Gianni Versace's legitimisation of vulgarity to the advent of athletic clothing as a fashion uniform. Longer essays from The New Yorker and The Atlantic are interspersed with 450-word pieces from the The New York Times Magazine.
