Fashion is an elegant and relatively easily read tour de force along academic and literary roads into the notion of fashion ... History is combined with contemporary material, academic views with concrete aesthetics; designers are used as examples and are treated on a par with great thinkers - nothing is too big or too small to be included in his considered analyses ... A very convincing book, recommended to everyone who is interested in fashion, sociology and philosophy in a practical or an academic context. Weekend-Avisen, Copenhagen
