Inside the sleek, slipcase volume, readers will encounter works by the leading contemporary photographers, including Steven Meisel, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, David Sims, Mert Atlas, Marcus Piggot, Craig McDean and Steven Klein. The versatility of Coddington’s creative eye is consistently clear throughout. From surreal portraits to fantastical collaborations with Tim Walker, the flame-haired director imbues each image with lashings of imagination, style and sartorial flair. A veritable legend in her own time, Grace Coddington stepped away from a full time position at Vogue in January 2016 to pursue other projects — launching her own perfume, and starring in the new Calvin Klein campaign (amongst other things).
Her highfalutin troupe of models, celebrities and photographers travel the world within these pages, and its locations span from the wild Dartmoor plains to the decadent insides of stately American homes. For fans of the fantastical, this glossy new release is the rabbit hole you’ll struggle not to fall down.
Grace: The American Vogue Years is available to buy now on Phaidon.
Grace Coddington will be signing copies of her new book Grace: The American Vogue Years at Harrods (5th Floor, Shoe Heaven) from 5pm – 7pm on Monday 19th September.
