What makes English girls the coolest in the world? What is the English style which girls around the world try to emulate? In this book Luella Bartley - the fashion designer dubbed "Queen Luella" by The Observer - sets out to capture what it is that makes English girls just a little bit special. First up are the clothes - Luella investigates the combination of smart and scruffy, classic and street-style, which ensures that English girls are always at the cutting edge of fashion. Then there are the icons - the English girl knows that Kate Moss and The Duchess of Devonshire both have a place in the style pantheon. Luella explains the style tribes vying for the English girl's allegiance, the social rituals she undergoes - from surfing in Cornwall to clubbing in Berlin - and the status symbols she marks herself out with. All this requires a lot of photographs, drawings, and, occasionally, diagrams. But Luella's Guide to English Style isn't simply a book about fashion and style, it's a work of social anthropology - delivered with a wink and a kiss on the cheek. Luella describes the English girl's approach to love and shows how the English girl gets better with age. With her own fashion label and background as a writer and editor on Vogue and the London Evening Standard, Luella Bartley is brilliantly placed to map out English style and what it means for girls. "This book will be a kind of handbook to everything English and stylish" - Luella.
