INFRA-APPAREL. Richard Martin and Harold Koda. Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 1993. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 130 pp. with 69 ills. (44 col.). 26 x 21 cm. LC 93-9564 ISBN 0810964309 In English.
Explores the appropriation of forms of intimate apparel as models for new fashions over the past two centuries, illustrating some 50 garments (most drawn from the Museum's Costume Institute) that range from chemise-like gowns of the late 18th century to an undershirt-topped evening dress created by Karl Lagerfeld in 1992. Accompanied by reproductions of paintings by David, Seurat, Picasso and other artists portraying formal and intimate fashions, a five-part text examines the aesthetic issues and social and psychological attitudes reflected in the blurring of public and private modes of dress.
