Martine Sitbon has become an icon among designers and fashionistas, earning her praise from Karl Lager- feld as being the only living French designer. Hand- picked to breathe new life into Chloe in the mid-1980s, and the first woman to be named designer at the house, while simultaneously working on her own ready-to-wear label, Sitbon has been at the helm of high fashion for decades. Martine Sitbon, sumptuously designed by longtime collaborator Marc Ascoli, deftly illustrates the looks that have built Sitbon's reputation-including her separates, draped and tucked organza minis, smart trenches, and sexy rocker-girl pieces-and shows how her style has made her not only a woman's designer, but a designer's designer, having spent years mentoring such respected tastemakers as Phoebe Philo and Isabel Marant. With never-before-seen sketches and photographs, this book allows readers to gain a better understanding of the designer's personal universe and inspirations that have until now been largely hidden from view.

Style "This mix-it-up spirit is evident inAlternative Vision, which feels more intimate than just another glossy fashion tome. A kind of luxe reimagining of a scrap-book, Alternative Visionis designed by Ascoli and explores Sitbon s archive through a mix of contributions from collaborators to never-before-seen shots and sketches."
