Japanese Fashion examines the entire sweep of Japanese clothing history, from the sophisticated fashion systems of late-Edo period kimonos to the present day, providing possible theories of how Japan made this fashion journey and linking current theories of fashion to the Japanese example. The book is unique in that it provides the first full history of the last 200 years of Japanese clothing. It is also the first book to include Asian fashion as part of global fashion as well as fashion theory. It adds a hitherto absent continuity to the understanding of historical and current fashion in Japan, and is pioneering in offering possible theories to account for that entire history. By providing an analysis of how that entire history changes our understanding of the way fashion works, this book will be an essential text for all students of fashion and design.

Japanese Fashion book. There aren't any pictures. Not one. The front cover is the only image you'll find in the entire book. Pardon my visual prejudice, but I must confess I am curious as to the point of an art history book which leaves out all the actual art? While the details of the development of Japanese fashion and its fashion industry are no doubt of interest, since there is no visual grounding it seems curiously There aren't any pictures.

Great!

On page 53 Slade writes: 'Until the end of the fifteenth century, linen from flax had been the most popular fibre, but from that point on the growing cotton industry increasingly reduced the use of linen." This is a clear error of fact; hemp, ramie and other bast fibres were used but not linen. I suspect Slade has made this mistake because 'asa' (hemp/bast fibre) is often translated as linen. Linen is one kind of asa - but not the kind that was the predominant fibre used in pre-15th century Japan. This is a careless mistake. I didn't read past page 53.

It's odd to me that a book about the cultural history of fashion in a country has no pictorial references.

This is one of the most informative and insightful works of fashion history I have read. Slade's book explores one fascinating example of the complex interaction between fashion, modernization, personal expression, and the state. I teach a yearly fashion-theory seminar at a well-regarded institution, and I would sooner cut, say, Roland Barthes, than leave this selection out of the syllabus. (Concerning the reviewer below: to give this incredible book two stars just because it lacks pictures is misguided and utterly unhelpful to potential readers.)
