He experiences fashion with a sharpsense of irony and a visual culture rooted in concep-tual art. But his style is totally now! Showcasing over30 years of work, this handsome volume culminateswith an illuminating conversation with the designer,making it unique in the study of Berthoud as acultural and artistic icon.
