"Obsessed with thinking about thinking, Barthes' life was a stylish intellectual adventure. He was also a hedonist, a meticulous dresser, gay, sensitive, sardonic, sociable, gossipy. He made reading a sacrament. With his unique vision, Barthes has helped us to read the world" ( Independent on Sunday)
"Only lightweights read gushy coffee-table books of the 'Monsieur X is the best designer in the world!' variety; to be truly hardcore, get your hands on Roland Barthes' The Fashion System. Struggle to the end of this and, boy, will you feel clever" ( Guardian)
"Barthes was an enormously alluring, sympathetic and sexy character" ( Independent)
"Barthes's treatment of fashion in "The Fashion System is his most elaborate attempt to reveal the little worlds of meaning enclosed in each nuance of social life. . . . In a magisterial effort that has been superbly translated by Matthew Ward and Richard Howard, Barthes certainly draws our attention to some fascinating aspects of fashion. . . . One is able to hear the voice of a sensitive and sensible critic who was alive to the symbolic vitality of the world."--Flint Schier, "New York Times Book Review
