Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel


Ms. Vreeland in her Vogue offices circa 1968.

The internets are abuzz regarding a very special new book featuring legendary editor and consummate fashion muse Diana Vreeland’s life and work.  The tomé, Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, documents her time at the helm of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue and her later years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, as well as her larger-than-life persona.  Editorial spreads, iconic covers, and photos of Vreeland herself by the likes of Andy Warhol, David Bailey, Richard Avedon and more flesh out a rich portrait of this game-changing woman, who aimed to capture the zeitgeist in her work and lifestyle.  In a film which accompanies the release of the book,  she fittingly remarks on the socioeconomic and anthropological impact of clothing; ‘…You can even see the approaching of revolution in clothes; you can see and feel everything in clothes,’ and one is inclined to agree.

Below, a series of page selections from the book...
