Rosamond Bernier ‘Some of My Lives: A Scrapbook Memoir’ Book

Art historian, lecturer and Vogue legend Rosamond Bernier is the subject of this limited edition box set published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux and produced by Yoox. Her time as features editor saw her befriend the greats including Picasso, Matisse, Braque, Léger, Miró and Ernst. A dinner party list to be reckoned with. A woman of incredible style, she soon added Coco Chanel and Cristóbal Balenciaga to her list of mates in high places and would go on to collect designs from some of the greats in an impressive archive. A regular at the Met in NY, she gave over 200 lectures, all of which would sell out months in advance. At 95 years old she releases ‘Some of My Lives: A Scrapbook Memoir’, this special volume on sale at Yoox is numbered, signed and includes artwork by Matisse and Ernst from her personal collection.
