Diana Vreeland (1903 – 1989) was the 20th Century’s greatest arbiter of style, an exotic and vibrant character who, during her fifty-years as the “Empress of Fashion” dazzled the world with her unique vision of style high and low. She launched Twiggy, advised Jackie O, and coined some of fashion’s most eloquent proverbs such as “the bikini is the biggest thing since the atom bomb.” After twenty-five years at Harper’s Bazaar, Diana resigned and took over Vogue as editor-in-chief. It was the swinging sixties, where – as Diana would say – “you could have a bump on your nose, it made no difference so long as you had a marvellous body and carriage.” Uniqueness was being celebrated and Vreeland’s transformation of Vogue was at the vanguard of this cultural revolution. The pages of Vogue exploded with fashion, art, music, and film, forming its “golden years.” It was suddenly a young, new and exciting magazine, where models had personalities and fashion spoke to all women. Diana became a living legend, with her striking silhouette, her jet-black hair, and her peculiar voice, somewhere between high society and street slang. Her famous red living room, “a garden in hell”, became the headquarters for New York arts and society. Diana would look upon these years as her most glorious ones; she had finally found an era fit for her vivid and wild imagination.
Featuring interviews with stars including Ali McGraw, David Bailey, Lauren Hutton and many more, recounting their personal memories of Vreeland, DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL is both an intimate portrait and a vibrant celebration of one of the most influential women of the 20th century, an enduring icon whose influence changed the face of fashion, beauty, art, publishing and culture itself forever.
