RE­QUIRED READ­ING

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

Tommy Hil­figer’s new mem­oir, Amer­i­can Dreamer (out this month), is a com­pi­la­tion of the de­signer’s in­flu­ences and sar­to­rial loves: from an early ap­pre­ci­a­tion of foot­ball uni­forms to nau­ti­cal tops and high­waist sailor trousers that are still part of the brand’s DNA to an ob­ses­sion with flags that paved the way for the iconic logo. There are also plenty of cin­e­matic New York mem­o­ries, from the beat­nik era to the hip­pie hey­day and Stu­dio 54, to keep you turn­ing the pages. ($30, ama­zon.com) n
