Les 15 Revolutions De La Mode (1968)

Les 15 Revolutions De La Mode


I've had this copy of Les 15 Revolutions De La Mode by Gisèle D'Assailly in my collection since the mid-90s, it's an amazing large format/coffee table fashion history reference book originally published in 1968, comprising of 251 pages, each one heavily illustrated throughout. However, in keeping with the general timeline of this blog (apart from the first image on the cover) these particular scans are all from the final chapter of the book which concentrates on design from the 1960s, and features the work of Cardin, Courrèges and Saint Laurent.
