Fashion and the World Cup

If you’ve been watching the World Cup these past few weeks, you might enjoy Sophie Gilbert’s brief review of Simon Doonan’s new book Soccer Style: The Magic and Madness. Gilbert explains that Doonan is clearly biased towards the flashy nature of these off-duty athletes, with the book serving as “less measured historical analysis than zingy reader’s guide.” However, Gilbert (through Doonan) offers some fun insights into how soccer stars have evolved into glamorous figures over the past few decades.

New Book: Charles James: Portrait of an Unreasonable Man

Inspired by Celia Hartmann’s lightning talk Charles James at the annual conference, I poked around Amazon and landed on the new biography Charles James: Portrait of an Unreasonable Man: Fame, Fashion, Art. Sounds like a must for anyone fascinated by this incredible designer!
