Hamish Bowles Inks New Book – Takes Readers to the Met

Vogue’s illustrious editor Hamish Bowles is known for traveling to extraordinary places and covering global fashion–always in the utmost of style.
He’s the epitome of a Lives of Style fashion arbiter.
Bowles, who, in addition to serving as the Editor-at-large for the American edition of Vogue, curated the highly acclaimed Balenciaga exhibits at the Queen Sofía Spanish Institute in New York City, and the de Young Museum in San Francisco.
Bowles was first interviewed by Elisabeth Laurence, host of Lives of Style in 2011 and subsequently has become a go-to-expert for the show.
For his new book, Bowles focuses his worldwide fashion and style lens and zooms in on a more localdestination – The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
In  “Vogue & The Metropolitan Museum of Art — Costume Institute: Parties, Exhibitions, People,” Bowles takes readers on a journey through Met history by covering galas throughout the last 13 years.
With an introduction by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, the book taps into the Vogue archives, starting from 2001’s “Jacqueline Kennedy: The White House Years” all the way up to this year’s “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.”
Photographs by Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, and more are featured in the book, which illustrates actual photos taken at the galas.
The book–which we eagerly await, will hit stores on September 23rd.
