The Book: Chloé: Attitudes (Rizzoli, $85;

The Story: Founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion—credited with shifting the way women dress with her forward-thinking belief in luxury ready-to-wear fashion—Chloé has been a fixture for decades and a magnet for young designers. The book celebrates the label’s modern take.

The Major Players: A 28-year-old Karl Lagerfeld joined Chloé in 1964. Stella McCartney (1997–2001) made her mark; Phoebe Philo (2001–2006) ushered in a significant rebirth of the brand. Current creative director Clare Waight Keller keeps the narrative moving forward.

The Highlights: Photos by the likes of Helmut Newton, Deborah Turbeville and Patrick Demarchelier. Aghion wrote the book’s forward; fashion journalist Sarah Mower handled the text.

Who Should Own It: Those intrigued by fashion-house histories—or who simply appreciate a cool-girl approach to clothes.
