Widely considered the authoritative text on the master couturier, this survey extensively documents the impact the fin-de-siecle designer had on contemporary fashion. Profusely illustrated with color and black-and-white plates of costumes, dresses, coats, hats, and shoes, by photographers Jean-Michel Tardy and Jacques Boulay; with an introduction by key French fashion figure Didier Grumbach; and a bibliography and index. Originally published in France in 1986. Some dustiness and wear to cloth; unclipped dust jacket with light dampstaining to verso and minor soiling and edgewear. Very good. Item #4299
