Recensione

"So excited to read "the bible of fashion."" -Champagne and Heels

“…this exquisitely reproduced reissue of his 1954 tome, subtitled A Personal History of Changing Tastes and the People Who Have Inspired Them, is a collection of the designer’s photos and commentary. Its 18 chapters, accompanied by more than 150 line drawings by Beaton, feature reminiscences of personalities who influenced fashion and decor. Chanel, Poiret, Schiaparelli, Dior, and other well-known creators sit alongside his Aunt Jessie, a Victorian belle, and some forgotten society types…The foreword by Beaton’s literary executor and designated biographer Hugo Vickers, notes that The Glass of Fashion “has become essential reading for those who study fashion.” The book is that and so much more. It’s a trip back in time with an observant, effervescent, talented, and opinionated guide. Many of his profiles and observations prove to have withstood the test of time. It is as fresh today as when it was first published.” –Library Journal

First-Rate fashion book…an alluring collection of vignettes of the personalities who inspired fashion during the 40s and 50s.” –Harper’s Bazaar

"The Glass of Fashion
is one of the more entertaining books that has surfaced on the topic of fashion. Moreover Mr. Beaton oddly foreshadowed what is still visible in the juxtaposition of fashion and celebrity. Mr. Beaton graciously and almost effusively illustrated this book…Would this be a recommended book for the sophisticated, fashionable, and curious reader? The Glass of Fashion deserves to be in the library of any of the above." –New York Journal of Books

“[One of the] Must-Have Fashion Books of the Fall –Elle

“Dashing!” –Papercity Magazine

L'autore

Sir Cecil Beaton (1904–1980) was a photographer in the 1920s for Vanity Fair and Vogue. As a portraitist, he photographed the stars of fashion, society, and the art worlds, and was considered the unofficial court photographer of the British royal family. He was also an Oscar-winning stage and costume designer. Hugo Vickers is Beaton’s official biographer and literary executor. He has lectured about him all over the world and assisted with the many exhibitions devoted to Beaton.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very Entertaining Look at Fashions and Personalities That Influenced Beaton 15 ottobre 2014
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
So glad this book is back in print. It used to be that I could only find this book at the library. You will really enjoy this book if you are interested in history of fashion, and intriguing personalities with lots of style. Beaton's illustrations, scattered throughout the book, are charming. Apparently the U.K. version also includes photographs that couldn't be included in the U.S. version due to copy right issues. I will be on the look out for the U.K. version, but for now, I am pleased to own a copy of this unusual and entertaining book.

5.0 su 5 stelle opinions from an icon 24 dicembre 2015
Di MMdesigner - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It is surreal to read a book written by such an icon as Cecil Beaton. I get a kick out of his opinions of the day and of what he saw in his younger/childhood days. As a designer, I like to 'see' from the perspective of other designers and of different times - this book satisfies both. As a bonus, he really is a hoot!

5.0 su 5 stelle This book is beautifully produced and truly a fun 16 agosto 2016
Di Eric Sassaman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book is beautifully produced and truly a fun, sometimes biting read. But then again, what else would one expect from the pen of Cecil Beaton.
Upon receipt, I immediately ordered another copy as a gift as I was so thoroughly taken by the quality & artistry of the book itself, as well as by the contents.

Di Anna - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
My only beef is that there are so many typos throughout this book and in fact near the end of the book the pagination is totally off! I actually would love a refund on the book because it really needs a total redo in terms of proofreading. Sad that Cecil was dissed this way.
