Violet Velvet Mittens with EverythingPrinceton Architectural Press
Immerse young readers in the glamorous world of the eccentric and fashionable Diana Vreeland, who once asked: “Why don’t you wear violet velvet mittens with everything?” Violet Velvet Mittens with Everything celebrates Empress of Fashion Diana Vreeland, whose legacies at Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art have had a lasting impact. As a little girl in Paris, Vreeland loved to dance and read, though she loved dressing up most of all. Wearing a rainbow of colors all at once made her feel most like herself, and her dedication to individuality inspired countless others to be just as dazzling and daring. A wonderfully true story of making extraordinary dreams possible, author Deborah Blumenthal echoes the infectiously extravagant tone of Vreeland, with illustrator Rachel Katstaller matching the icon’s careful consideration of color.
