9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By K. Platt TOP 100 REVIEWER on 2 Feb. 2012
Format: Hardcover
Subtitled 'Country and City Fashion, 'Russian Elegance' brings a record of Russian fashion that is truly remarkable. The authors unveil what has hitherto been almost impossible to find. This revelation consists of Russian costume from the 15th to the early 20th centuries. It encompasses Old Russian Dress and National Costume from the 15th to the early 20th century and Urban Costume in Russia from the 18th to early 20th century. The text is informative and very interesting. The photographs of the costumes are superb. For years I have searched for a book on Russian peasant costume and I am very glad to find some excellent pieces shown in this book. I found all the areas of costume of interest whether they were from the Tsars, peasants or ecclesiastical. Jackets, coats, dresses, headdresses, shoes, handbags and more, all were of interest. The close up details are fantastic and include embroidery and earrings. This is an excellent resource for those interested in Russia, textiles or costume. I highly recommend this beautifully produced book. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

I have only just started reading this book in depth, having looked through leisurely. It's educational, eye-opening, enlightening. If you are looking for something which gives you beautiful photographs, detailed explainations of the same and in-depth background, then this is the book for you. The only thing missing was the wonders of Russian jewellery, but that must be another book in itself.

This is an excellent book if you are interested in fashion history and Russia. With excellent illustrations, good analysis and very interesting anecdotes it serves both general reader and specialist alike. As an introduction it just draws you into a new world of elegance, fashion and history. Brilliant

Wonderful book about Russian historical costumes- it has a fantastic collection of photographs of, and information about, traditional Russian costumes, western-influenced fashion and court dress.

Really nice book about fashion in a country that we sort of tend to forget.
