Superbe ouvrage!
Ce livre est LA référence en matière d'histoire de la mode et du costume.
Le seul bémol serait qu'il manque de croquis techniques. Mais c'est vraiment chipoter tant ce livre est riche et précis!! (En particulier sur le vocabulaire extrêmement pointu du vêtement, lequel à longtemps été victime d'erreurs et d'approximations)
Bref indispensables pour les férus de mode et de costumes d'époque. Cela fera aussi un joli cadeau.
