description

Part memoir, part fashion history, part social commentary, Alexandra Shulman explores the meaning of clothes and how we wear them
''Clothes... and other things that matter is a book not only about clothes but about the way we live our lives. From childhood onwards, the way we dress is a result of our personal history. In a mix of memoir, fashion history and social observation I am writing about the person our clothes allows us to be and sometimes the person they turn us into.'' - Alexandra Shulman
InClothes... and other things that matter, Alexandra Shulman delves into her own life to look at the emotions, ambitions, expectations and meanings behind the way we dress.
In 40 essays covering everything from the bra to the bikini, the trench coat to sneakers, the slip dress to the suit, she explores their meaning in women''s lives and how our wardrobes intersect with the larger world - the career ladder, motherhood, romance, sexual identity, ambition, failure, body image and celebrity.
By turns funny, refreshingly self-deprecating and often very moving, this startlingly honest memoir from the ex-Editor of BritishVoguewill encourage women of all ages to consider what their own clothes mean to them, the life they live in them and the stories they tell.

''Alexandra Shulman''s style is unaffected, immediate and hilariously dry. She''s brilliant at observing everyday feelings in a joy-sparking turn of phrase.'' - Helena Bonham Carter
''Self-deprecating and stylish, this is sure to become a classic.'' -Vanity Fair
''Warm, thought-provoking and honest.'' - Victoria Hislop
