Lo, and the Sex and the City girls.

Lingerie: A Lexicon of Style, Caroline Cox
8 Caroline Cox Lingerie: A Lexicon of Style
Scriptum Editions 236336 London 2000 First Edition 190268608X / 9781902686080 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Written by cultural historian and fashion academic Caroline Cox, Lingerie: A Lexicon of Style explores the fetish and fun of underwear, referring to influential designers, historical trends, and other factors that continue to shape how we perceive and wear lingerie. A spirited, provocative, and thoroughly informed examination of ladies undergarments, Lingerie is a romp through more than 200 color photos accompanied by sparkling text that makes even the G-string seem faintly erudite. Begining with that most controversial item of feminine garb, the corset, Cox explores just how far this confining contraption has progressed over the past 200 years. The bra likewise comes under scrutiny in a witty appraisal of its iconic appeal.Panties, stockings, and suspenders; slips, peignoirs, and camisoles; and athletic-inspired vests and briefs are all covered (and uncovered) in an expert, artistic, and elegant fashion. In Lingerie, Cox gets to the crux of the evolution of erotic style. AUTHORBIO: CAROLINE COX is Pricipal Lecturer in Cultural Historical Studies at the London College of Fashion. She broadcasts regularly on fashion for the BBC. 192 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: History; Fashion, Fabrics & Style; Fashion & Beauty. ISBN: 190268608X.

Dress and Undress: A History of Women's Underwear, Elizabeth Ewing
11 Elizabeth Ewing Dress and Undress: A History of Women's Underwear
B. T. Batsford 236026 London 1978 0713416297 / 9780713416299 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Underwear, however functional it may or may not be, is the basis on which the silhouette of fashion is formed and is, moreover, increasingly an erotic element in its own right. Elizabeth Ewing describes the underwear of each period from 3000 BC and the manner in which it evolved. But, just as important, she explains the reasons for the changes and names the individuals who were themselves the agents of change. The Empress Eugénie, Worth, Lady Duff Gordon, Paul Poiret and Caresse Crosby all had their influence, and so in different ways had Dr Jaeger, Mrs Bloomer and, more recently, Marks and Spencer and Janet Reger. No less important have been such technical innovations such as the introduction of rayon, rubber, nylon, Lastex, Lycra and the zip fastener. The illustrations chosen here are pertinent, plentiful, and often unfamiliar. Some are from original drawings by Jean Webber; others from old and new paintings, photographs and prints, while many of the most diverting are from the catalogues and advertisements of stores and manufacturers covering the last 120 years. Now appearing in paperback for the first time, Dress and Undress will not only be invaluable for students of costume history and fashion design but will also appeal to the general reader fascinated by the intricacies of costume and its development. 191 pages.
