More Info


American designer Geoffrey Beene is acclaimed worldwide for his originality of design, innovative use of fabrics, and unerring modernity over the course of some three decades. In this charming book, specially commissioned drawings of Beene's garments are paired with a fanciful, poetic text. Beginning with the deceptively simple question, "What is beauty?" readers are led on a whimsical journey that is all about searching for and seeing meaning in life -- while exploring Beene's unique aesthetic.

In the magical kingdom of Geoffrey Beene, humble cottons and fine French silks form seamless partnerships, high-tech jerseys arc so airy they practically fly, and ordinary velvet is spun into glistening panne. This completely original book is certain to delight, tickle, and provoke fashion lovers of any allegiance.
