"Nostalgia In Vogue" hits stores in early Nov and that makes it a quintessential Christmas item
“I had read too many stories about magazines losing image troves, whether because they were poorly maintained, thrown out by accident, or deemed unimportant to posterity. But you need only visit any designer’s studio and see the vintage portraits and fashion photographs pinned to the wall to understand that these pictures carry weight; that they are points of reference and inspiration, not simply commercial images made to sell dresses.”
Anna Wintour in the foreword to Nostalgia In Vogue.
I recall a brilliant writer , (I believe it was Hilton Als) expressing the discouraging sentiment that in fashion, people are suspicious of words and the people who ply too heavily in them.
