Wow, what a gift last week I received from my colleagues a book called "Preppy, cultivating Ivy Style".
Filled with great pictures and easy to read everything you need to know about the preppy lifestyle.
Authors Jeffrey Banks and Doria de La Chapelle examine the fashion designers who played a major role in shaping the preppy look, from retail pioneers J.Press and Brooks Brothers to Ralph Lauren, who single-handedly marketed not just a look but a lifestyle. Also featured, a band of young twenty-first century Ivy stylist and fashion labels, like Michael Bastian, who infused preppy with high-octane design. Buy it and enjoy it just like I do.
