Anne Hollander, who died at 83 on Sunday, was an independent historian of style who wrote “Seeing Through Clothes” (1978), “Moving Pictures” (1989), “Sex and Suits” (1994) and “Feeding the Eye” (2000), all popular books about the cultural and psychological implications of what we wear. She also liked to connect clothing to art. Hollander spoke to WWD once, in a story by Francesca Stanfill that ran on December 4, 1978. Here are some of her provocative quotes.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
