Description - Style File by Ike Ude

"Style File" is a celebration of the stylish as opposed to the stylized. "Style File" appeals to those with an interest in fashion, graphic design, art, and celebrity. It appeals to a cultured audience with an interest in pioneering stylemakers and receiving that point of view in both interview format and smart, but not academic, essays by top thinkers in the field. This approach broadens the book's appeal to a secondary, more mass audience, because it is lighter. In this book, celebrity is not tauted - an innate sense of fashionability and vision is, and it is these qualities, among others, that have made the interviewees chosen for this book enduring style arbiters. Following a foreword by Valerie Steele and an introduction by Harold Koda, the book includes more than 58 interviews - all with a photograph of the subject.The book also features numerous special photo albums put together specifically for the book. They include an album of images by the renowned fashion photographer Scavullo, an album by photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and an album on the recently deceased and highly revered fashion stylist Isabella Blow, among others. Sidebars - such as essays on the popular blog The Sartorialist, Motown Style, and the Belle Epoque - and aphorisms on style also enhance the book throughout. The personalities profiled and/or interviewed include: Rufus Albemarle; Iris Apfel; Lara Aragno; Marisa Berenson; Hamish Bowles; Valentina Cervi; Alba Clemente; Francesco Clemente; Pat Cleveland; Amy Fine Collins; Peter Davis; Victoire de Castellane; Oscar de la Renta; Jacqueline de Ribes; Ines d'Urso de la Fressange; Anh Duong; Lapo Elkann; Isabella Ferrari; Duggie Fields; Barnaba Fornasetti; Montgomery Frazier; and, Bella Freud.The personalities profiled and/or interviewed also include: John Galliano; Romeo Gigli; Carolina Herrera; Sebastian Horsley; Amechi Ihenacho; Stephen Jones; Kenny Kenny; Klossowska, Harumi; Krell, Gene; Lemper, Ute; Logan, Andrew; Louboutin, Christian; Ludot, Didier; MacDermott, David; MacGough, Peter; Malle, Frederic; McDonald, Patrick; McFaddden, Mary; Mounia, Orosemane; Odukoya, Olu; Ontani, Luigi; Pearl, Mr.; Pernet, Diane; Posen, Zac; Ruffino, Robert; Sabisha; Sparks, Cator; Talley, Andre Leon; Toledo, Isabel; Toledo, Ruben; Turner, Darryl; Tworkowski, Mish; Ude, Ike; Von Keller, Cordelia; von Furstenberg, Diane; and, Von Teese, Dita.
