The Easy Riders, Raging Bulls of the fashion world of 70s Paris Alice Drake is a highly respected fashion journalist and has access to all the surviving personalites Written with verve and style, full of gossip - this is the book for every fashionista

In 1950s Paris, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld were friends, the rising stars of the fashion world.

But by the late sixties the city was invaded by a new mood of liberation and hedonism, and dominated by intrigue, infidelities, addiction and parties.

Each designer created his own mesmerising world so vivid and seductive that people were drawn to the power, charisma and fame, and it was to make them bitter rivals. "The Beautiful Fall" is a dazzling expose of an era and the story of the two men who were its essence and who remain its most singular survivors.
