Absolutely Fascinating! 28 avril 2000
Par sally barry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I can't wait to go out and buy this book, which I read in hardcover from the library. It is very well researched and illustrated and discusses clothes and fashions from long ago up till today. And not just fashions and how they change, but what they MEAN. For example, did you know....in olden times, not just elegant clothing, but cloth itself was and admired and expensive commodity. The more cloth making up one's clothing meant that person was wealthy. Paintings of the period featured draperies in the background to indicate a person's wealth, and even today designer clothing uses more cloth and is cut fuller, carrying on the tradition. Anyone interested in not only fashion and clothing but symbols and history should read this book, it is just fascinating and delicious.

A great social history of clothes 28 janvier 2006
Par Beatrice Izzey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Well written, well argued history, not text book like at all, but like a long New Yorker article. A pleasure to read. It's not about silly petty fads but great social movements that underlie trends and revolutions. I think more photo illustrations would help.

A meditation, not a history 4 avril 2010
Par D.E. Wray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is an amusing essay on how Lurie interprets various clothing, outfits, and styles. The book is easy to read and is a way to pass the time pleasurably. Potential readers, however, should be aware that the "language" metaphor does not hold for long: in this book, clothes are like a language only inasmuch as they convey meaning. One could just as validly and convincingly write about, say, "the language of bookshelves" or "the language of bicycle riding styles." Those interested in a history of clothing would do well to look elsewhere, and those interested in analyses of clothing would do well to look elsewhere as well (e.g., The Fashion System). Potential readers are also warned that Lurie tends to make sweeping generalizations about persons not part of her social world (e.g., the poor or non-Anglo-Saxons) and some may find these generalizations (never backed by citations of evidence) offensive.

A sweeping look at the history and evolution of clothing. 4 juillet 2000
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Novelist Lurie here turns her attention to the history and social interpretation of clothing, linking politics, sexuality and social issues such as class to the evolution of clothing design and style. From Victorian to modern times, The Language of Clothes takes a sweeping look at the history of clothing's evolution and trends, making for an excellent guide.

Expressing yourself through your clothing. 5 juillet 2014
Par Rena Alisa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a fabulous book. I am now look at clothing in an entirely new way. It's an old book but it's message is eternal. It's humorous and very well written. I'm glad to reread it after many years.
