"In 1954 they were two young talents from the provinces, both dreaming of Paris, glamour and glory. Yves Saint Laurent was the charmed youth, the enfant terrible inheritor of Dior's couture crown, his frame almost too slight to bear his genius. Karl Lagerfeld was the flamboyant freelance designer with a remarkable talent for ready-to-wear. Seemingly from a background of enormous wealth and privilege, he was in fact a tireless workaholic, driven by his passion for capturing the pose of the moment." "Then the student riots of 1968 happened and staid Paris exploded like a champagne bottle left in the sun. The city embraced liberation and hedonism, making up for years of post-war insecurity. It was a decade dominated by factions, intrigue, infidelities, addiction - and parties. There were costume balls, enchanted summer escapes tea parties that turned into clubbing till dawn, and fashion was the fulcrum on which they turned." "Each designer created his own mesmerising world, a world vivid and seductive enough to pull people to them - people attracted by their power, charisma and fame. Betty Catroux, Loulou de la Falaise, Paloma Picasso, Pierre Berge and Jacques de Bascher were all living in the mirror of fashion. The tensions of class and nationality, bohemia and luxury, youth and yearning, talent and ambition were subsumed in the creation of glamour. The two cliques could not help but become rivals." "But as the seventies turned to the eighties, heroin and Aids cast their shadow; fashion became an industry, money prevailed and the beautiful people discovered the danger of living their dreams. "The Beautiful Fall" is Alicia Drake's chronicle of this dangerous, brazen, fabulous time, and the two designers who were its essence and remain its most singular survivors."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

Sehr interessant und unterhaltsam, wenn man sich für Yves Saint Laurent und Karl Lagerfeld. Wie könnte man aber auch nicht? Der eine ist hilaaaaaarious, der andere ist Yves Saint Laurent. Als würde sie mit Photos dasitzen und anhand der Photos den Mikrokosmos Mode-Paris erklären, mit ein paar poetischen Glanzmomenten drin. Aber insgesamt war es mir zu Sachbuch (to be fair: es IST ein Sachbuch) aber mir fehlte etwas die Glorie in der Wiedergabe der Exzesse. Nichtsdestotrotz ein sehr hübsches Buch und All hail Karl! Ich glaube, ein langweiliges Buch über Karl Lagerfeld zu schreiben, wäre auch ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit. ( )

The Beautiful Fall is an engaging read about the world of 70's Paris fashion, centering around Karl Lagerfeld and Yves St. Laurent. It's a detailed history, so took a long time to read, but well worth it as the characters are engaging and the dramas were intense. For those like me who follow fashion somewhat but have never been in that world at all, and are really too young to remember the 70's in all of their glory, it's a great read for a winter week (or two) when the nights are long and the coffee is hot.
