The Guide to Male Lifestyle in Las Vegas

Simon Doonan Signs at Barney’s

October 15, 2013

Simon Doonan, Barneys New York Creative Ambassador, will be hosting a book signing for his brand new book The Asylum: A Collage of Couture Reminiscences…and Hysteria at the Las Vegas Barney’s store at the Grande Canal Shoppes, 3377 Las Vegas Boulevard South Suite 2600, Las Vegas, Nevada 89109.

The Asylum: A Collage of Couture Reminiscences…and Hysteria is a hilarious collage of Simon’s memories and experiences within the explosive world of Fashion—a love story to the fashion industry. Simon delves into stories about Anna Wintour, Diana Vreeland, Karl Lagerfeld, Azzedine Alaïa, Tom Ford, and many more!

Simon is appearing this Friday, October 18th, between 3pm and 5pm at the Barney’s inside the Grande Canal Shoppes at Palazzo Las Vegas. He is a fashion icon and an all-round witty guy. Here is a funny bit from the press release by blue rider press of Penguin Group:

  • What Anna Wintour is really like—even when a ceiling has collapsed on her—and why every non-actor fashionista in the universe was called in to audition for The Devil Wears Prada.
  • What makes high fashion the polar opposite of sexy.
  • Why Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II must never—never—be chic.
  • What Valentino, Karl Lagerfeld, and Azzedine Alaïa can teach the up-and-coming designers of today (“If the South Park boys cannot make a recognizable cartoon of you, then you need to up the ante”).
  • How the Olsen twins became the only celebrity designers to earn the respect of the fashion world.
  • What “squashing porn” has to do with bringing style to people of all shapes and sizes.
  • Why Kate Moss “is still the cool girl, the chick that every gal wants to emulate.”
  • Why Tom Ford gave Doonan a wedgie

You can read more here, and please do visit Mr. Doonan at Barney’s this Friday, where he’s promised to share more of his witty and off-kilter insights into the general fashion world.
