The Story of Underwear

Two volumes

Muriel Barbier, Shaun Cole, Shazia Boucher

The first of these two highly illustrated, slip-cased volumes traces the history of men's underwear, from the purely functional garments of ancient times up to the eclectic range of styles available today. The second offers an analysis of the relationship between societal conventions and the evolution of intimate female attire, looking at how the lingerie industry has been shaped over time by influences such as emancipation.
