The Color of Fashion is a stunning coffee table
book with fascinating stories of fashion woven throughout history with COLOR.
Whether it's mellow yellow, in the pink, feeling blue, or
green with envy, COLOR is so entwined with our emotions that there are
countless expressions and song lyrics devoted to it. But what meaning does
color have in what we wear? What does a green dress convey when worn to a
cocktail party, what significance does a white trouser suit have when worn by a
female politician, and why does a woman in red command attention?
The Color of Fashion delves into the significance of
color in dress and explores how the symbolism has shifted over time.
Think of
how black transitioned from a color of mourning to the ultimate in elegance,
how millennial pink has defined the Instagram generation, and beige, once a
sophisticated favorite of Chanel, now reflects the normcore subculture.
Featuring images of iconic colorful moments in fashion
history - including Jennifer Lopez in green Versace, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez in
white tailoring and Audrey Hepburn in that Little Black Dress - this book is an
essential read and coffee table book
for fashion lovers everywhere.
