The 18th century back in fashion exhibition catalogue
Presented in dialogue with the masterpieces of the collections of the Galliera museum, the fashion designs of great contemporary couturiers testify to a shared fascination for the 18th century: Lagerfeld invites Watteau and his robes à la française to Chanel, the house of Christian Dior puts fairytale princesses on its catwalks, and Westwood brings back to life the period's extravagant courtesans and marquises, to name just three...
Enriched with a superb portfolio of engravings and pieces from the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, this catalogue pays true homage to the Enlightenment years, the style of Madame de Pompadour, Marie-Antoinette and Versailles, capital of taste in the 18th century.
