Roland Barthes, widely regarded as one of the most perceptive critics of the twentieth century, was particularly fascinated by fashion and clothing. This collection brings together all of Barthes' untranslated writings on fashion, revealing the breadth and insight of Barthes' long engagement with the history of clothes. The essays range from an analysis of the significance of gemstones and jewelry, to an exploration of Courr#65533;ges and Chanel, to a discussion of of hippy style in Morocco, and the role of color in fashion.
