Previously divided into two volumes, Les accessoires de A à Z is now available in a compiled version. There are nearly two thousand models of accessories, not counting all those that have permanently but not definitively disappeared from the fashion scene … So, before we succumb to the temptation of naming each of the models that make up this extraordinary heritage an “it-something”, Les accessoires de A à Z is the essential step in calling a cheque a cheque! Les accessoires de A à Z is the only encyclopedia on all fashion accessories.
Each model is described, illustrated, and historically presented, and its name is translated into English. Hair accessories, hats, textile accessories, jewelry, belts, shoes, fans, gloves, glasses, masks, leather goods (luggage, bags, small leather goods), watches, umbrellas and walking sticks are all examined. Les accessoires de A à Z is a must for anyone who needs to learn about this subject, master the vocabulary of fashion, enjoy all sorts of stories and anecdotes and draw inspiration.
