From insidious murder weapons to blaze-igniting crinolines, clothing has been the cause of death, disease and madness throughout history, by accident and design. Clothing is designed to protect, shield and comfort us, yet lurking amongst seemingly innocuous garments we find hats laced with mercury, frocks laden with arsenic and literally 'drop-dead gorgeous' gowns. Fabulously gory and gruesome, Fashion Victims takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the lethal history of women's, men's and children's dress, in myth and reality. Drawing upon surviving fashion objects and numerous visual and textual sources, encompassing louse-ridden military uniforms, accounts of the fiery deaths of Oscar Wilde's half-sisters and dancer Isadora Duncan's accidental strangulation by entangled scarf; the book explores how garments have tormented those who made and wore them, and harmed animals and the environment in the process. Vividly chronicling evidence from Greek mythology to the present day, Matthews David puts everyday apparel under the microscope and unpicks the dark side of fashion. Fashion Victims is lavishly illustrated with over 125 images and is a remarkable resource for everyone from scholars and students to fashion enthusiasts.

Trésors du vintage
Author: Pénélope Blanckaert, Angèle Rincheval Hernu
Le vintage (« vendange » en anglais, mot de l’œnologie pour parler de millésimes), s’applique depuis les années 1990 à la mode. D’abord utilisé pour désigner les vêtements anciens de créateurs prestigieux (Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermès...). Le terme s’est étendu à toute pièce d’occasion, datant au plus tard des années 1980/90, et reflétant un moment particulier de l’histoire de la mode du XXe siècle. Trésors du Vintage est un Argus rédigé par des experts du domaine. Il se présente comme un catalogue encyclopédique de la mode féminine. Plus de 1000 références présentent visuellement les plus belles pièces échangées sur le marché ces dernières années, accompagnées d’un commentaire précis sur l’histoire du vêtement et de sa griffe et sur les signes de son authenticité (griffe, matières, finitions, état, valeur.) Organisé par décennies dans lesquelles sont regroupées les plus belles pièces vendues, il donne ainsi un panorama complet de l’évolution des styles et des tendances de chaque période. Des doubles pages «zoom», agréablement illustrées, sont réparties dans l’ouvrage, venant compléter ce panorama par des sujets documentaires : une vente exceptionnelle, une rétrospective de créateur, une récente acquisition d’un musée ou d’une maison de couture, le travail de restauration, un portrait de collectionneur ou interview d’expert... Une rubrique adresses et conseils donnera enfin au lecteurs toutes les indications utiles pour chiner, profiter des ventes, s’y reconnaitre.
Author: Martine Sitbon, Marc Ascoli
Publisher: Rizzoli International Publications
The first book on the highly influential French fashion designer renowned for her rock' n' romantic style and for reinvigorating the house of Chloé. Martine Sitbon has become an icon among designers and fashionistas, earning her praise from Karl Lagerfeld as being "the only living French designer." Handpicked to breathe new life into Chloé in the mid-1980s, and the first woman to be named designer at the house, while simultaneously working on her own ready-to-wear label, Sitbon has been at the helm of high fashion for decades. Martine Sitbon, sumptuously designed by longtime collaborator Marc Ascoli, deftly illustrates the looks that have built Sitbon's reputation--including her separates, draped and tucked organza minis, smart trenches, and sexy rocker-girl pieces--and shows how her style has made her not only a woman's designer, but a designer's designer, having spent years mentoring such respected tastemakers as Phoebe Philo and Isabel Marant. With never-before-seen sketches and photographs, this book allows readers to gain a better understanding of the designer's personal universe and inspirations that have until now been largely hidden from view.

In this intellectual tour de force John Ralston Saul argues that our society is only superficially based on the individual and democracy, and the West now toils unconsciously in the grip of a stifling “corporatist” structure that serves the needs of business managers and technocrats as it promotes the segmentation of society into competing interest groups and ethnic blocks.
The Price of Illusion
Author: Joan Juliet Buck
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
From Joan Juliet Buck, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and “one of the most compelling personalities in the world of style” (New York Times) comes her dazzling, compulsively readable memoir: a fabulous account of four decades spent in the creative heart of London, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris—“If you loved The Devil Wears Prada, you’ll adore The Price of Illusion” (Elle). In a book as rich and dramatic as the life she’s led, Joan Juliet Buck takes us into the splendid illusions of film, fashion, and fame to reveal, in stunning, sensual prose, the truth behind the artifice. The only child of a volatile movie producer betrayed by his dreams, she became a magazine journalist at nineteen to reflect and record the high life she’d been brought up in, a choice that led her into a hall of mirrors where she was both magician and dupe. After a career writing for Vogue and Vanity Fair, she was named the first American woman to edit Vogue Paris. The vivid adventures of this thoughtful, incisive writer at the hub of dreams across two continents over fifty years are hilarious and heartbreaking. Including a spectacular cast of carefully observed legends, monsters, and stars (just look at the index!), this is the moving account of a remarkable woman’s rocky passage through glamour and passion, filial duty and family madness, in search of her true self.
