This is not a book to be flicked through. It needs to be leisurely studied, preferably sitting at a table because it’s over 500 pages thick and there is no way you can casually hold it in your hands and skim through – it’s not a copy of Look. All the greats are in there including Giovanna, Emanuelle Alt, Kate Lanphear and George Cortina (above). Cortina is my personal favourite. A stylist, his look is all about how to wear clothes rather than what he wears. The rolled up sleeves, just-worn-in-enough shoes, half-tuck tee. This is how I like to dress as avoiding ‘It’ pieces inevitably means that what you wear has longevity. Despite what Schuman says in his intro, I still maintain that his commentary helps to add value to the pictures, especially when it’s a cute story relaying how the picture came about.
