Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
One of the early 20th century’s most celebrated designers, the London-based "Lucile” was a key transitional figure in the evolution of fashion. Seventy five years after her death, the Lucile aesthetic is being rediscovered, achieving newfound appreciation among connoisseurs of costume and theatre. Lucile –– Her Life by Design, the first full-scale treatment of the couturiere’s career, heralds her renaissance with an insightful study of her work and its impact on style and social change. Based on twenty years of archival research and exclusive interviews with Lucile’s family, clients and other associates, this book places in fascinating perspective the legend behind the label.
