"Jean Patou: A Fashionable Life is a monograph in the truest sense covering the life and career of Jean Patou from a business standpoint as well as from a personal one. Emmanuelle Polle offers the reader an unusually precise accounting of life and times of the man whose name is synonymous with French fashion as well as French perfume. There is so much here about why Monsieur Patou should be even more revered and recognized within the annals of fashion history... Jean Patou: A Fashionable Life is a book that can be and should be read for intellectual fulfillment, and sheer entertainment as a real life French fairy tale that revolves around the world of fashion. The book is a must read for those who wish to round out and enhance their knowledge of fashion-and definitely for those who are just learning about the subject." New York Journal of Books

"It is an essential reference for anyone interested in the history of fashion and of the greatest early years of modern Parisian style." Society Diaries

"CHIC READ. Jean Patou, A compendium of never-before-seen archival photos and sketches from the illustrious French designer and perfumier whose heyday was the '20s and '30s." Wall Street Journal ..".unprecedented access by Patou's heirs to diaries, letters, sketchbooks and client lists, reveals the brief but flowing arc of his career."

"There are few things more luxurious than the glamour and haute couture of the twentieth-century, and this book totally embodies that. At long last, Jean Patou's archives have been opened and we've gotten a glimpse into his charmed career. In the 20s and 30s, Patou was Chanel's biggest rival. Though his career was cut short, what he accomplished during those years was truly inspiring. What we wouldn't give to revisit Paris in the 20s and be a fly on the wall in Patou's studio. With this book- we can!" Rue

"This is a fantastic and much-needed primer on Patou" The Paris Blog
