“A Life of Style” by Rebecca Moses ($35, The Monacelli Press)
U.S. womenswear designer Rebecca Moses wins fans for her lush knits, and
now, a new, well-priced line, Heart Soul Style. But she’s also a stellar illustrator
and all-around creative soul, judging from this watercolor-filled fantastic journey
through both her life and her philosophy of chic. Her pointed, prettily illustrated
questions (“What does a bag say about us?” “How would Marie Antoinette
decorate her pad?”) make for a read that’s as thoughtful as it is haute.
