Seeing Red: Diana Vreeland

September 06, 2012

In January of 1970, Diane booked an appointment with the formidable Diana Vreeland, then editor-in-chief of Vogue. Diane entered the lacquered red office with a suitcase full of jersey dresses and a nervous smile. After her customary greeting of “Chin up- UP!”, much to Diane’s amazement, Ms. Vreeland declared the dresses “Terrific, terrific, terrific!”  The rest, as they say, is history. Part of that history is explored in Rizzoli’s new book, Diana Vreeland after Diana Vreeland, edited by Maria Luisa Frisa and Judith Clark, which corresponds with an exhibition at The Palazzo Fortuny Museum in Venice. The book arrives just in time for fashion week, filled with lust-worthy images from fashion pages past. And we’re completely obsessed. We don’t want to spoil the fun, but vintage Harper’s covers are sprinkled between images of a wide-eyed, thickly lashed Twiggy, and color-blocked Mondrian shifts vie for attention alongside vibrant Pucci ensembles. We’re especially enamored of the animal prints peppered throughout. We also can’t get enough of Ms. Vreeland’s  iconic “Why Don’t You…” column from Harper’s Bazaar. For example, “Why don’t you… wear a bowler,” or “Why don’t you…buy a transparent evening coat.” Don’t mind if we do.
