"Few designers today can claim the impact of Martine Sitbon. The French creative made history with her appointment as head designer at Chloé in the late ’80s—the first woman to hold the title. Over nine seasons, she forged a refreshing, romantic new identity for the house, crafting flirty bodysuits, dreamy separates, and show-stopping minis—all while running her namesake label. Sitbon also served as an influential mentor for successive talents Phoebe Philo and Isabel Marant. Martine Sitbon: Alternative Vision offers an intimate glimpse into the elusive designer’s world through sketches and photographs of her essential works. Prepare to be enchanted all over again." —V MAGAZINE
