Love Vintage takes the reader on a charming visual and literary journey through the annals of 20th-century fashion design. With beautiful photography and an elegant text, it effortlessly reveals both the recurring themes of fashion whilst also identifying the distinct features and innovations of each era. Vintage clothing is much valued, not least because if its graceful and fluid appearance, but also on account of the wearability and durability of the garments. Unlike the mass-manufactured clothing of today, where garments are more-often-than-not two-sided grabs of fabric hastily stitched together, much of the clothing of the past was designed to be refashioned and reworn as time went by.
