Описание: Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald ... the "Lost Generation" ... illustrations by John Held, Jr. ... the "It" girl ... Lucky Lindy ... Louis Brooks ... prosperity, seemingly endless, and the inevitable crash. The twenties loom large in the American imagination as a decade unto itself, a brief span of years, but with a style all its own. In this paper doll collection, noted fashion illustrator Tom Tierney brings back the style that set the twenties apart, at least in terms of haute couture. Here are the fashions that gave the decade its distinctive chic and, in the process, revolutionized women's wear. Gone is the elaborate corsetry of the Edwardian age, waistlines are lower, hemlines are higher and costume jewelry is de rigueur. Thirty meticulously re-created costumes and two dolls (15 costumes per doll) present the voguish looks established by such haute couture legends as Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Madeleine Vionnet, Paul Poiret, Madame Paquin, Worth, Lelong, and 11 others. Paper doll collectors, costume fanciers, and fashion historians will appreciate this delightful collection of artfully rendered paper dolls and costumes.

Описание: The 1930s they began somewhat unstylishly in the midst of a worldwide depression but ended as a dazzling and influential decade of haute couture. Influenced by the Bauhaus movement ("Form follow function") and the Art Deco trend, a coterie of brilliant designers set the tone for the times with an exciting new wave of provocative fashions. Here, in a handsome, painstakingly researched paper doll fashion book, noted artist and fashion authority Tom Tierney re-creates the exquisite inventions of the top couturiers: Schiaparelli, Lanvin, Vionnet, Molyneux, Chanel, Mainbocher, Worth, Paquin, and others. Rendered in glowing full color, the collection comprises two dolls and 32 meticulously detailed costumes, accurate down to the last nuance of fabric and fold. Suddenly out is the "boyish look" of the Roaring Twenties. It is a more seductive line. In the 30s, skirts take on a clinging fluidity, hats get smaller, gloves of every length are a la mode, and the backless evening gown makes a dramatic entrance. By 1933, Paris turns to Hollywood for inspiration and film stars Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford, and Garbo are the new international fashion setters. (Tierney's dolls bear striking resemblances to the first two actresses.) Fashion connoisseurs will delight in this parade of stunning costumes, featuring a navy wool frock with sable-bordered cape-scarf and muff by Worth; an elegant gold lame evening gown with gathered peplum flounce by Lanvin; a Chanel creation of white tulle with sunburst stitching; Schiaparelli's "Chinese" taffeta cape and satin dress; and dozens of other inspiring designs. An informative text describes fabrics and accessories and lists the date of the creation and the designer's name. This charming, inexpensive haute-couture collection will appeal to paper doll enthusiasts, costume fanciers, fashion historians, and anyone interested in the fascinating 30s."

Описание: During the first quarter of this century, the pen-and-ink illustrations of Charles Daba Gibson (1867‒1944) set the tone for illustrators everywhere, and their intrinsic charm continues to captivate. A brilliant social satirist and later an accomplished painter, he put his indelible stamp on an era with his lovely creation, the Gibson Girl. With unusual deftness, directness and economy of line, Gibson, barely in his 20s, idealized the glamor and sophistication of the American woman in masterly pen-and-ink drawings. The appeal of his beautiful, animated young ladies was instantaneous -- and universal -- and the Gibson Girl's manner, hairstyles and dress were eagerly imitated by women around the world. At home, his illustrations of the Gibson Girl swimming, golfing, boating, seemed to give impetus to the liberation of the American woman. For this lavish volume, artist Tom Tierney has painstakingly recreated the Gibson Girl as a paper doll, in full color, while retaining the essence of the originator's virtuosic pen strokes. This charming collection includes two Gibson Girl paper dolls with 24 exquisite period costumes and complete accessories: a stately presentation gown worn at the English court, and a bridal gown; tennis, golf, and bathing costumes; walking dresses and travel outfits; proper attire for theater and a day at the races; lacy night wear; elegant beaux-arts ball gowns, dinner gowns, theater gowns ... and more. In addition, you'll find five male dolls attired in fashionable city clothing and country wear -- even a bridegroom's outfit. A total of 31 full-color illustrations accurately capture the look and spirit of the Gibson Girl era and provide a glimpse of the pastimes enjoyed by stylish, active woman. Antique and paper doll collectors, artists, costume historians, anyone interested in fashion design will welcome this splendid tribute to one of America's best-known illustrators and his unforgettable creation, the Gibson Girls.

In between came the "boyish" tubular look of the twenties; suits and dresses that were wide at the shoulders and slim at the hips during the thirties, and a "New Look" dependent on the lavish use of fabric during the forties. Tom Tierney's carefully researched and expertly rendered collection featuring 50 years of French high fashion includes three dolls modeling haut couture apparel by Schiaparelli, Paquin, Poiret, Lanvin, Patou, Worth, Lelong, Chanel, Gres, Ricci, Balenciaga, Dior, and 18 other fashion giants.
