WIENER CHIC: A LOCATIONAL HISTORY OF VIENNA FASHION. Susan Ingram and Markus Reisenleitner. Intellect Books, Bristol, 2013. Urban Chic. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect Books, University of Chicago Press. 216 pp. with 57 ills. 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781783201846 In English.
Publisher's description: Vienna may not be synonymous with fashion like its metropolitan counterparts Paris and Milan, but it is a fashionable city, one that historically has been structured by changing fashions and fashionable appearances. Like the Litfassaule in Orson Welles's 1949 urban noir masterpiece The Third Man, into which Harry Lime escapes in order to avoid capture and the hapless visitors today presume are merely surfaces for advertising, there are many overlooked aspects of Vienna's distinct style and attitude. By focusing on fashion, Wiener Chic narrates Vienna's history through an interpretation of the material dimensions of Viennese cultural life--from architecture to arts festivals to the urban fabric of street chic. The first book that connects Vienna and fashion with urban theory, Wiener Chic draws on material that is virtually unknown in an English-language context to give readers an insider's vantage point on an underappreciated European fashion capital.
