Feast Your Eyes on Iconic Outfits of the Twentieth Century

OneModelPlace.com members who love fashion may want to add a new book to their wish list.

Following its exhaustive 2009 art tome The Impossible Collection, which culled the 100 most coveted artworks from the modern era, Assouline is releasing a glossy, fashion-focused sequel next week, according to NYMag.com.

In The Impossible Collection of Fashion, priced at a cool $650, Museum at F.I.T. curator Valerie Steele selects the 100 most iconic dresses of the twentieth century.

The 144-page book is a stunner, featuring full-page photos and illustrations of flounced, beaded, padded, and feathered gowns from the likes of Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Rei Kawakubo, and John Galliano. Check out this NYMag.com slideshow for a sneak peek inside the upcoming coffee table must-have.

Pictured is a design by Marc Bohan for Christian Dior, circa 1972 — an evening dress in cigaline, embroidered in absinthe green by Vermont. It is one of Marc Bohan’s most intricate creations as the head designer of Dior, succeeding Yves Saint Laurent. ​
