In the 1920s, fashion magazines were the principal source for news of the latest Paris couture. One of the most famous of these journals was 'L'Art et la Mode', which captured the glamour that was Paris in the Twenties, from days at the races to nights at the opera, from Sundays at the Ritz to Saturdays at the Folies-Bergere, and it followed the glittering circuit that flourished from Longchamps to Deauville to Cannes to Biarritz.
This lavishly illustrated volume offers 138 dazzling pages from 'L'Art et la Mode' featuring fashions for all occasions by the great French couturiers of the Twenties-Patou, Worth, Molyneaux, Doucet, Paquin, Vionnet, Lanvin and Chanel among them. A wealth of designs include stylish outfits for winter sports, hunting season, tennis, golf and other athletic pursuits, as well as high-fashion ensembles for soirees and all manner of chic divertissements.Illustrations:
