Overview

A Matter of Fashion: 20 Iconic Items that Changed the History of Style by Federico Rocca

Sometimes a single garment can change the course of fashion forever. Consider the Burberry trench coat or Givenchy's little black dress—milestones that transformed everything. This extraordinary book, a visual and intellectual feast of historical illustrations, cult advertising, and beautiful still-life shots, narrates the history of 20 iconic fashion items, ranging from Levi's jeans to Hermès scarves and Tiffany pearls.
