Hamptons Beach Read Of The Day: The Beautiful Fall

by CARSON GRIFFITH · August 27, 2009

If you haven't caught on yet, I'm a little excited for fashion week. I also am kind of jealous of all those people who got to take part in all the fashion in Paris in the 70s. This book, The Beautiful Fall: Fashion, Genius, and Glorious Excess in 1970s Paris shares this time with the rest of us who will never be able to -recapture those moments. Especially those of the late Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld, the two very famous designers who set the trend for fashion in France at the time. The over the top fashions, the parties, and the ambition is all chronicled here in one book. It's a perfect way to get your Fashion Week hat on, and an even better way to spend your day at the beach.
