3.0 out of 5 stars Pix Great, Text -- Less Dec 16 2013
By Anne Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has beautiful pictures of "minimalism" in fashion over the past 100 years -- I put "minimalism" in quotes. because in this book the word is used to describe simplicity rather than something more rigorous. The text, however, is disappointing. First, there's the print -- an elegant grey in tone, difficult for my old eyes to read. Second, it's got a lot of current art speak in it. Finally, it has less on the Japanese influence than seems appropriate to me. Still and all, lovely pix for fashion addicts.

Beautiful book, arrived in perfect condition. I love it from the aesthetic standpoint and also because I want to minimalize my wardrobe. It arrived in a timely fashion as well.
