Christmas gifts

8,2 kilos of fashion




Jeg fikk mye fint i julen, blant annet noe mote. 8,2 kg mote for å være eksakt. Mye takket være en gedigen bok, egentlig bestående av to bøker, som jeg fikk av broren min og kjæresten hans. Jeg må si jeg begynte å lure da jeg fikk den blytunge presangen i fanget, jeg kunne ikke fatte hva de hadde kjøpt til meg som var så tungt, men fyyy så glad jeg ble da jeg så hva det var: "Fashion, a history from the 18th century to the 20th century". Helt fantastisk bok, anbefales! Også fikk jeg en annen bok som jeg har ønsket meg lenge, "100 years of fashion illustration". Samt et par klesplagg og to gavekort på H&M. Noen gav meg til og med penger, og de går nok med til mote de og. Aahhh, deilig!

I got many nice gifts for Christmas, among other things I got some fashion. 8,2 kg of fashion to be exsact. Pretty much thanks to a book, actually containing of two books, that I got from my brother and his girlfriend. I must say I began to wonder when I got the extremely heavy present in my lap, I couldn't imagine what they had bought me that were so heavy, but daaamn how happy I became when I saw what it was: "Fashion, a history from the 18th century to the 20th century". Fantastic book, highly recomended! I also got another book that I have wanted for a long time: "100 years of fashion illustration". Also some clothing and a couple of gift certificates from H&M, somone even gave me money and they'll probably go to fashion as well. Aahhh, yum!


The wonderful, huge book:



Amy Linker 1913 - Junuya Watanabe Comme des Garcons 1998 and Yohji Yamamoto 1999



The yummy illustration book:




Illustration 1: Leon Bakst 1910 - Illustration 2: David Downtown 1999

those books are some of the best you can get for historical fashion photography. one day i want to visit kyoto and see the collection. sooooo many dresses... some other good books in this context are: "historical fashion in detail" with great close-up shots.

Very nice ! Maybe I'm going to search for it in our local bookstore...this seems a good one when I look at the pictures you posted ...
I've looked at a lot of other books of fashion but they were never as complete as this one you described...

Merry Cmas and glad you had the perfect presents !
