Diana Vreeland, one of fashion’s most celebrated editors, is well known for her gift with words and inimitable style. Forty-two years after stepping down as the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine and 24 years after her death, Vreeland’s legacy continues to live through the vivid emotion of her work – both visually and verbally. Out tomorrow, a new coffee table book Diana Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years featuring more than 250 pieces of Vreeland’s personal correspondence. Reading her memos and letters, personally selected by her grandson Alexander Vreeland, was a delightful, immersive experience that perfectly explains why her Vogue was as entertaining and innovative as it was educational.
