Overview

Nostalgia in Vogue celebrates the popular and poignant coming-of-age memoir columns that have been enchanting Vogue readers since 2000. This elegant volume collects a wonderful selection of Vogue’s famous “Nostalgia” columns and the stunning photographs that accompanied them. Writers, designers, models, and celebrities share coming-of-age stories based on a rich range of themes from fashion to art, Hollywood, music, childhood, work, and love, each triggered by an extraordinary photograph from Vogue’s history.
With a host of intriguing characters and stories, and images by legendary photographers such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Henry Clarke, Helmut Newton, Horst P. Horst, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Nostalgia in Vogue is both a visual treat and a fascinating read. Whether told from the point of view of a budding movie star or a teenager straining to make sense of the sophisticated adult world, each entry offers a unique slice of life sharply evocative of time and place. Nostalgia in Vogue is a must for devotees of fashion, pop culture, photography, and literary memoir and reaches across a readership of all ages. Text by Eve Macsweeney with a Foreword by Anna Wintour and essays by Joan Didion, Margaret Atwood, Patti Smith, Edmund White, Karl Lagerfeld, Carly Simon, John Galliano, Ann Packer, Anjelica Huston, Nora Ephron, A. M. Homes, and others.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This October, Rizzoli celebrates Vogue’s literary column titled “Nostalgia” with the release of NOSTALGIA IN VOGUE edited by the magazine’s Eve MacSweeney, with a foreword by Anna Wintour. Written by some of the most influential people from various areas of the arts—Joan Didion, Margaret Atwood, Patti Smith, Edmund White, Karl Lagerfeld, Carly Simon, and others—each essay is accompanied by the photo that inspired it. Writing on themes ranging from fashion to love, thirty-seven well known public figures share coming-of-age stories that reveal how a particular image changed the course of their lives, while others remember old friends and familiar haunts captured on the magazine’s pages." ~Slamxhype

"Evocative, valuable, and all-around very nostalgic, this collector's item is a must for fashion junkies." ~Plastik

Caroline Weber
For this magnificent anthology, Eve MacSweeney…has selected several dozen of the finest, most engaging articles in the column's 10-year history, and reprinted them alongside the images that first inspired them…Chock-a-block with artful Avedons and pulchritudinous Penns, risqué Rittses and naughty Newtons, Nostalgia in Vogue offers readers a…foray into the magazine's photographic archive. What could be better? Well, not much, except perhaps for the actual writing. Nostalgia in Vogue is a treasure trove of highly diverse and evocative first-person recollections.
