This book brings together words and aphorisms on fashion, its figures, its influence and its variations, taken from the literature of past centuries. From the moralists of the Grand Siècle to the dandy novelists, from the medieval fabulists to the modern chroniclers, a great number of authors, French and foreign, have been defenders, critics or simply observers of fashion. This anthology brings to light the relationships that women and men have with time, the body and politics through fashion.
