Geeks by jon katz essay

As might be expected, one of last season’s most stunning exhibitions in New York has a suitably handsome publication that captures much of the genius of its subject, the American haute couture designer Charles James (1906-1978), on its large, glossy pages. The brilliantly simple structure and sculptural forms of the evening dresses, coats and dinner suits James designed from the 1930s through the early ’60s are captured in vintage and contemporary photographs, while his strange, sad life is detailed in Jan Glier Reeder’s excellent chronology. – Roberta Smith
