Get A Sneak Peek Of An S.F. Style Maven's Whimsical New Tome

main
For those naysayers that argue fashion isn’t a form of art, we have a new sartorial tome that is undeniably so. AAU's executive director of fashion — not to mention Vogue contributor, talented illustrator, and all-around stylephile — the Gladys Perint Palmer, is releasing a collection of whimsical works titled Adam & Yves.

The book rolls out next month and is chock-full of elegant sketches of influencers, designs, and signature moments throughout sartorial history — plus, notable art director Rod Dyer put his magic-making hands on each of the 216 pages.
"Adam & Yves is a tongue-in-cheek history of fashion, crammed with delicious historical items and quotes," says Palmer. "These are in chronological order, beginning with Adam and Eve, the snake, the apple, and the fig leaf." Come on, how could your coffee table collection be complete without this? While it hasn't been released just yet, the book's cover has, and if its any indication of the rest of it, June 1 can't come soon enough.
