The Couture Accessory by Caroline Rennolds Milbank
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Accessories created by the great designers provide not only enormous pleasure but also offer a crystallized image of their creator's vision. This volume celebrates the visionary hats, bags, shoes, belts, scarves, gloves and jewels fashioned by deigners of the 20th century, beginning with Poiret, Vionnet, Chanel and Schiaparelli and continuing through to Azzedine Alaia, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino and Vivienne Westwood. From Poiret's Scheherazade turban to Galliano's camouflage saddle bag, the couture accessory can be an evocative sign of the times. The book examines the contibutions of the individual designers as well as capturing pivotal moments in 20th-century fashion.
