Zip


Zip! Vestiti per tutte le stagioni
by Giancarlo Ascari and Pia Valentinis

Clothes can be colorful like the feathers of a parrot or hard like a suit of armor. Some people throw on the first thing they see in the closet. Others spend hours in front of the mirror perfecting their look. Those who make clothes used to be called “tailors,” now they’re called “fashion designers.” So, why do we go around wearing pieces of sewn-together cloth? In this brilliantly illustrated book, the authors present the history of clothes and fashion in a playful way, starting with the Biblical fig leaf.
Divided into chapters dedicated the four seasons, readers learn interesting facts, anecdotes, and stories about jackets, skirts, jeans, coats, hats, shoes, bags, ties, and more!
