WEARING COLOURS Variations – Returns – Persistences

The colour of a garment well represents the person who is wearing it and the society he belongs to. This book recalls the swinging of taste in colour regarding apparel, linked to a series of events that often mingle together. Through alterations and changes in history, you can recognize its different events: commercial flows, power hegemony, and philosophical, artistic, and social concepts, that have determined it. The structure of the book allows you to read the chapters in logic-chronological order or as single essays.
