TRUE PREP by Lisa Birnbach with Chip Kidd From the author of The Official Preppy* Handbook comes a new take on the old world that Lisa Birnbach turned into an international best-selling phenomenon thirty years ago. True Prep looks at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog-worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies adapts to the new order of the Internet, cell phones, rehab, political correctness, reality TV and…polar fleece. A small sample: • Wardrobe: Recent prep brands we are forced to recognize. How to tell Casual Friday from, say, Saturday. • Money: We never talk about it. • Food: Does the Food Network mean we’re going to have to cook? Bake? Now you’re going too far. • Scandals: Poor Mrs. Astor. When Mummy’s plastic surgery goes terribly wrong. Rehab and the slammer: the new prep schools. • We’re outta here: When to name something after yourself, and when not. The right obituary. • What to do with your dogs if you predecease them. • NO TEXTING AT THE TABLE, PLEASE. True Prep promises to be a whole new old sensation. trueprep (*Style qui mixe un hommage à l’esprit collège BCBG, les “preps schools” et un esprit rétro.
