Product Description

Review

'Vogue On Designers - a new, compact series of books, small enough to carry in your handbag but still hardbacked - is destined to take pride of place in many a carefully edited library. The series stands out for the unique access all the writers have had to the magazine's archive of photography and illustrations. The Condé Nast library has offered up an unprecedented quantity and quality of images, shot by everyone from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino and Tim Walker. Thanks to Vogue having first charted the careers of these designers, their lives and works within its pages, there was a vast amount of original material for the writers to draw on, making this a dream project. Each of the four designers' stories comes back to life - the images of their collections acting as prompts, reminding us just how dramatic their impact has been on the way we dress. From detailing how hard the designers worked to how they lived with their visionary brilliance, the books made a captivating assessment of their power and their legacy today. These aren't vast coffee-table books to gather dust, but new fashion friends to be read, perused and revisited for inspiration.' --VOGUE, October 2012

'Four fabulous little books on four era-defining designers of the 20th century.' --The Mail on Sunday, 16th September 2012

'Oh, we do love an affordable snippet of style and the new Vogue On series offers just that.' --Image Magazine, September 2012


'Like the girls modelling the exquisite clothes, the books are slim, enchanting and beautifully proportioned. The text is brief but informative, and laced with delicious quotes such as this from Chanel: 'Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.' --Mail on Sunday, 7th October 2012

This book is among a new series introducing some key figures in fashion design, other titles include: Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, and Elsa Schiaparelli. The books act as a concise introduction to those famous designers, so for those who want to start building their fashion library, this might be a good start.

The books come in a nice size, well bound and printed on high-quality paper. Each book briefly traces the beginnings and the social and historical scene prevailing during the era of each designer and how this shaped their approach to the designing process.
As the titles imply, the books reproduce lots of clear fashion photography and drawings from the rich archives of Vogue to show key examples for each respective designer.

A nice addition to fans of fashion and photography.

I can genuinely say that Coco Chanel is my favorite designer of all time, not mainly due to her fashions, but more to the history of her empire and her brains, beauty and sass, that made her the ultimate women that we read about today. This book was every girls dream, so to avoid spoiling the content, i will just say it is a must read! the packaging and postage and PRICE was also very competitive.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is well presented with a good mixture of text and pictures which impart a flavour of Coco Chanel's life, creations and achievements in an ideal format for browsing. However, those who like more detail might not find sufficient depth in this volume which pays much attention to presentation but slightly less to content. A presentable book and for many a welcome gift which is also a tribute to Coco Chanel's creativity.

Finally...a non-tacky account of the life of Chanel! This book is gorgeous in its approach to her life and her work, there is something terribly real about it and borderline relatable.
