USA- Assouline Publishing,

Hollywood, Cartier, Chanel, and Roberto Cavalli will release this season Diane Von Furstenberg: The Wrap by André Leon Talley who examines the history of the “wrap” phenomenon. Diane Von Furstenberg arrived in the fashion world in 1972 with her simple knit jersey wrap dresses. By 1976, Diane had sold more than 5 million of her signature wrap dressed, which had come to symbolize female power and liberation to an entire generation of chic young women. Now with smaller collars than the original wrap, the new version has been enthusiastically adopted by today's trendsetters and celebrities. This volume looks at the history of the “wrap” phenomenon, from its revolutionary early days to its ever-popular present. For Serial Rights
