Reseña del editor
In 1950s Paris, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld were friends, the rising stars of the fashion world. But by the late sixties, the city was invaded by a new mood of liberation and hedonism, and dominated by intrigue, infidelities, addiction and parties. Each designer created his own mesmerizing world, so vivid and seductive that people were drawn to the power, charisma and fame, and it was to make them bitter rivals. "The Beautiful Fall" is a dazzling expose of an era and the story of the two men who were its essence and who remain its most singular survivors.Ver Descripción del producto

Her research and curation of the lives of not only YSL and KL as men and brands — but the many people with whom they enwombed themselves is balanced and accurate without prejudice but nicely discussed with admitted speculation or directness. The care and thought given to her selections of material as well as a substance to her own interpretations creates a smooth and very enjoyable read.
The fact that my own memories were provoked has reminded me of all that was jewel-like in the nights in New York and Paris in the 70's. We were not wicked, we were enthralled by these great and shining comets of glory. At the age of 64 I can read this with equanimity and admiration.
Much has happened since the publication. YSL died of, it is said, a brain tumor, Betty Catroux is an icon, the Supermodels re-emerge from time to time, more beautiful for their aging, Turlington, Campbell, Evangelista, and so on. Lagerfeld has crystallized into his own image. It is 2017. I found reference to this book via an Instagram photo of Pierre Bergé (87 year) who has just (May 14 news) married Madison Cox.
If fashion is not of interest, it shouldn't matter; this is a story of a genius and brilliance, and the "decadence" of the 1970s.
If nothing else, one learns the definition of "decadence."
