Description - Clothes... and other things that matter: THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER A beguiling and revealing memoir from the former Editor of British Vogue by Alexandra Shulman

Chosen by Evening Standard as one of the best books to look forward to in 2020.

'a must-read memoir for even those beyond the fashion set.' - Evening Standard

Chosen by Stylist as one of 2020's best non-fiction books.

'In the funny and opinionated CLOTHES... AND OTHER THINGS THAT MATTER, former Vogue UK editor Alexandra Shulman explores the meaning of clothes and how we wear them. From the little black dress to the white shirt and the bikini, she takes pieces of clothes and examines their role in her own life and the lives of women in general, touching on issues including sexual identity, motherhood, ambition, power and body image. A must-read for anyone, like Miranda Priestly, who knows that clothes might not maketh the woman, but they certainly help.' - Stylist

'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

In CLOTHES... 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.

From the bra to the bikini, the trench coat to trainers, 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 British Vogue will 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.
