I’m a little bit in love with this fashion book. Icons of Women’s Style is about, you guessed it, iconic women’s style! Let this pretty little book whisk you away into the feminine glamour of days gone by. Ooh la la.
Icons of women’s style / Josh Sims.
“Behind nearly every item in the feminine wardrobe there is a first of its kind that has spawned countless others. Take Coco Chanel’s short, simple black dress first published in American Vogue in 1926, for instance. Vogue predicted that the LBD would become ‘a sort of uniform for all women of taste’ and, indeed, it proved to be one of Chanel’s greatest contributions to fashion. Icons of Women’s Fashion examines, item by item, the most influential and legendary garments and accessories – their provenance and history, the stories of their design, the celebrities who made them famous, and the various ways they have shaped how women dress today.” (adapted from syndetics summary)
