All in black but not a funeral in sight: the black suit and the 19th century man
For centuries now, black has been the main colour in fashion and costume. In the 15th century, the colour became popular at the court of Burgundy. The love for black clothing continued in the 16th century, under the influence of the strict and severe Spanish court, and in the 17th century, black was admired in the beautiful baroque paintings of Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck and their peers. This book explores the use of black throughout the ages and investigates its place in contemporary fashion design, looking at the work of designers such as Yamamoto and Comme des garcons.

Abstract

For centuries now, black has been the main colour in fashion and costume. In the 15th century, the colour became popular at the court of Burgundy. The love for black clothing continued in the 16th century, under the influence of the strict and severe Spanish court, and in the 17th century, black was admired in the beautiful baroque paintings of Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck and their peers. This book explores the use of black throughout the ages and investigates its place in contemporary fashion design, looking at the work of designers such as Yamamoto and Comme des garcons.
