This book, dating back to 1982, is described as a serious reflection on fashion and its meaning. It may be, but these essays, originally published in the New Yorker, are somewhat one-note -- the author doesn't seem to care much for what she's writing about, and makes sweeping generalizations about women. Perhaps it's simply that academic studies of fashion and its meaning have evolved so much since the time this book came out, but I ended up skimming half of the essays.

I didn't have high expectations for this book. After all, fashion writing in periodicals is not known for its brilliant style. But excellent writing and deep insight is exactly what I got. Kennedy Frasier wrote the fashion column for the New Yorker, and collected here are her essays from 1970 through 1982. Her writing style, it seems to me, is peculiarly British. Her phrasing is gentle and satisfying, and I never felt that she was resorting to circumlocution for want of something real to say. He [...]

At 22 years old, fresh out of university, Ms. Kennedy Fraser left England and moved to New York City for a job that no longer exists today: “Feminine Fashions” columnist at The New Yorker. She wrote about the panoply of costumes walking down Fifth Avenue, couture collections, and the emergence of “electronic” shopping, assuming the role of the seasoned analytical observer – and convincingly too, given her safe and acknowledged lack of experience. In the 33 essays collected here, Fraser [...]

Fraser is probably my favorite Fashion writer/historian. Here she managed to balance first-hand fashion reporting with an insightful undercurrant of the societal implications of Fashion during the 1970's-1980's Mainstream fashion produced and worn during this time period is sorely underrepresented in scholarly fashion writing so anyone interested in a first hand account of the phenomena of Calvin Klein during the first decade of his career Stephen Burrows at Bendels or how the Balenciaga exhibit [...]

This is one of if not the smartest collection of essays on fashion. I know fashion is important and intelligent - it makes me sad to see it reduced to trends, celebrities and competition. This book renewed my love for fashion.

One of the best writers on style and fashion.
