Clothes is the perfect isolation read - clever, emotionally intelligent, revelling in style without making us yearn to shop - Hannah Betts, The TimesShe has written about her clothes, and given us some scintillating reading. [...] hugely engaging memoir. - The SpectatorI really loved this book- it's warm, thought-provoking and honest. In the end, I had to ration myself because I didn't want to finish. In these frankly strange times it was wonderful and comforting. - Victoria HislopI loved this book. It's great company and a Corona comfort. Alexandra Shulman's style is unaffected, immediate and hilariously dry. She's brilliant at observing everyday feelings in a joy-sparking turn of phrase - but better still she has made me feel so much better about owning too many clothes. Instead of doing a ruthless edit I find myself curating my own private exhibition - inside my wardrobe hang not just clothes, not just stories but my own autobiography. - Helena Bonham CarterFrom the hat that went to the a Royal wedding to a life-changing bathrobe, Alexandra Shulman tells her life story in clothes ... in her hotly anticipated memoir. - You magazineSuch a great read - so open and honest and funny. I devoured it in one sitting. - Kirsty WarkA must-read memoir for even those beyond the fashion set. - Evening StandardA life beyond Moss, mwahs and Manolo Blahniks - by the fashionista that really knows [...] a wry and candid part-memoir, part-fashion history, part-social commentary. - Mail on Sunday
