Diana Vreeland needs no introduction. Neither do her witty proclamations and bon mots. And if you’re a fan — and, really, who isn’t? — then you’ll love the new book Diana Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years, which confirms everything you already know about this legendary editor: she’s imminently quotable and completely a fashion tour de force. Compiled by her grandson, it features a trove of personal correspondences to designers, editors, models and photographers — influencers all, from Richard Avedon and Horst P. Horst to Veruschka, Halston and Cristobal Balenciaga. Memos is a fascinating read, compelling both in its intimacy and over-the-top flair. But don’t just take our word for it — glimpse into her world of words here yourself.

    Many thanks for sharing this book with me. The few memos presented here show one of the most beautiful things in this world, a woman with soul and presence. There’s nothing like it. I’m definitely adding to my collection, can’t wait to read more memos.
