Whispers of this tome circulated around the time of her departure from Vogue Paris but here is the first look at what we can expect in Carine Roitfeld's 368-page coffee table book published by Rizzoli. Irreverent, which hits stores on October 18, features a photographic diary of Roitfeld's 30-year career including old family photos, scanned notes from designers, and memorable images from her long tenure at Vogue Paris. The revered editor has had no shortage of work opportunities since leaving the French fashion bible and even hinted at another book to be released in December in collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld.
Roitfeld also shared a few choice words about her fame saying, "I think everything came with the blogs, because I worked 20 years ago, and 20 years ago no one was talking about me. I didn’t change. Maybe I was at the right moment. But sometimes I say, What is so interesting about me? I am just doing photo shoots. It’s not something that extraordinary. I’m not a great artist, I’m not writing books, I’m not a painter, and people in the streets ask me for a picture or a note and I say why? But I think it’s better to appreciate it, because maybe it’s not forever."
