Critique: Albrechtsen opens a window on how good ideas skip the years to fertilise a future designer's imagination. --The Guardian

This is an epic undertaking that looks at the world of vintage clothing and accessories in the most comprehensive, authoritative, and encyclopedic way ... an objective, insightful, well researched, heavily documented and illustrated book that is a credit to [Albrechtsen's] knowledge ... This is a book to be used as reference, as education, and certainly for pleasure. --NY Journal of Books
