It is often said that we are living in a new golden age of design. Our gadgets, appliances, and cars are sleeker and more elegant than they’ve ever been; in our free time, we trawl the internet for pictures of flawless minimalist interiors; and even the great industrialist of our time―Steve Jobs―is admired more for his visual savvy than his technological inventiveness.

“The best book I have ever read about the mesmerizing cruelty of fashion.” —The Spectator
“Intelligent and pragmatic . . . This is a page-turner of a book.” —New Statesman
