Dress in Detail from Around the World
Rosemary Crill, Jennifer Weardon & Verity Wilson, eds

Кол-во страниц: 224
Кол-во иллюстраций: 150 цветных

Some 150 pieces, from the tropics to the Arctic circle, from the plains of India to the mountains of Montenegro, have been chosen to illustrate how different cultures create their regional and national costume. The garments range from the ceremonial to the everyday, and display a breathtaking richness of detail: rows of ornamental buttons, embroidered patterns, intricate pleating and stitching, flamboyant fringes and tassels that define and decorate at one and the same time. Featuring specially commissioned photographs and line drawings that demonstrate the underlying structure of each garment, the book is arranged thematically, drawing together examples of each type of detail and decoration from disparate cultures. Details of fastenings, necklines, cuffs, hemlines and fringes contribute to a wide-ranging survey which is both a visual feast of textures, patterns and craftsmanship, and a serious contribution to the interpretation of dress. The text is packed with information about the garments, the ways they were worn and how they were made.

Nineteenth-Century Fashion in Detail / Lucy Johnston \

Цена: 1100 руб. (в наличии 2 экз.)

Кол-во страниц: 224
Кол-во иллюстраций: 150 цветных

A glorious companion volume to Historical Fashion in Detail: The 17th and 18th Centuries (V&A 2000) and Modern Fashion in Detail >(V&A 1998), this book captures the opulence and variety of nineteenth-century fashion through an authoritative text, exquisite colour photography and line drawings of the complete garments. From the delicate embroidery on neoclassical gowns to the vibrant colours of crinolines and the elegant tailoring of men's coats, the richness of the period is revealed in breathtaking detail.
The garments showcased here, drawn from the V&A Museum's world famous collection, were at the height of fashion in their time. They display a remarkable range of colours, materials and construction details: from the intricate boning on women's corsets to the patterned silk of men's waistcoats.
Seen in close-up for the first time and further illuminated by detailed commentary and line drawings that show the ingenuity of the underlying construction, these carefully chosen garments illustrate some of the major themes of nineteenth-century dress.
Lucy Johnston is curator of nineteenth-century fashion in the V&A’s Department of Furniture, Textiles & Fashion. Her published work includes Shoes (V&A 1999), which she co-authored with Linda Woolley.
