I had long fell in love with Diana Vreeland’s style and work before knowing the details of her life, but after reading her autobiography D.V., I knew that she would go down in history as one of my favorite style mavens and editors. Now a new book about her life and work has surfaced: Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel, written by her granddaughter-in-law Lisa Immordino Vreeland.
The book tells the story of Vreeland’s adventurous and fashionable life through her work. Over 350 images are included, taking visual stimulation to a new level. It literally chronicles trends as they were being made: this book serves as the source of so many that we reference now. The work of photographers like Irving Penn and Richard Avedon is included showing just how iconic and influential Diana Vreeland was in her time and how much she still influences ours.
This is a must-read for any person who loves fashion as it gives so much history and knowledge.
Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel retails for $55. Visit www.barneys.com to purchase and see more images from the book below.
