Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, Leanne Shapton & 639 Others - Women in Clothes (2nd Hand Softback)
The New York Times Bestseller.
“It is essentially a conversation among hundreds of women of all nationalities - famous, anonymous, religious, secular . . . young, old” and so forth - on the subject of clothes. I immediately understand this to mean that a widely diverse range of women is going to discuss how they feel about clothing. Not an altogether terrible idea. I like clothes as much as the next gal."
Women in Clothes is a book unlike any other. It is essentially a conversation among hundreds of women of all nationalities - famous, anonymous, religious, secular, married, single young, old - on the subject of clothing, and how the garments we put on every day define and shape our lives.
It began with a survey. The editors composed a list of more than fifty questions designed to prompt women to think more deeply about their personal style.
Writers, activists, and artists including Cindy Sherman, Kim Gordon, Kalpona Akter, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Tavi Gevinson, Miranda July, Roxane Gay, Lena Dunham, and Molly Ringwald answered these questions with photographs, interviews, personal testimonies, and illustrations.
Even our most basic clothing choices can give us confidence, show the connection between our appearance and our habits of mind, express our values and our politics, bond us with our friends, or function as armour or disguise. They are the tools we use to reinvent ourselves and to transform how others see us. Women in Clothes embraces the complexity of women’s style decisions, revealing the sometimes funny, sometimes strange, always thoughtful impulses that influence our daily ritual of getting dressed.

"If you buy one book about personal style, make it this one. Women in Clothes . . . is an admirable and earnest attempt to unravel the snarled thread that runs between the way women look and how they feel about it. The cathartic urgency with which the book's contributors write suggests they themselves didn't realize they had so much to say about clothes. Maybe it was just that nobody ever asked." - Elle.
"Rich with detail, the must-read anthology shows how daily sartorial decisions speak volumes." - Lucky magazine.
"A gloriously eclectic account of fashion choices" - Sunday Telegraph.
"A refreshingly honest and often complex look at how we present ourselves visually to the outside world. And at a time when fashion and feminism frequently appear in the same sentence, it's an important book for women." - Style.com.
