Clothes And Other Things That Matter Alexandra Shulman

Clothes… and other things that matter

Alexandra Shulman


Alexandra Shulman’s Clothes… and other things that matter is a refreshingly self-deprecating and often very moving memoir from the ex-editor of British Vogue.

This startlingly honest account of her life will prompt readers to consider what their own clothes mean to them, and the stories they tell. From the bra to the bikini, the trench coat to trainers, the slip dress to the suit, clothes are rarely just clothes. Here Shulman explores their meaning in women’s lives and how our wardrobes intersect with the larger world – the career ladder, motherhood, romance, sexual identity, failure, body image and celebrity. This beguiling and funny mix of memories, observation and fashion history looks at how the clothes we wear (and choose not to wear) are the evocative and compelling companions to the lives we lead.
