Harry N. Abrams, Nov 1, 2008 - Art - 112 pages
With specially commissioned photographs of never-before-seen clothing, Magnificence of the Tsars celebrates the majesty of masculine uniform in Russia at its finest. The luxurious, opulent lifestyles enjoyed by the Russian tsars, their families, and courts were among the world's most extravagant for nearly two centuries, continue to be a source of endless fascination today. In this exquisitely illustrated collection, the grandeur of Imperial Russia is displayed in full. Starting in the 1730s with exquisitely embroidered coats and elaborately patterned silks from the wardrobe of Tsar Peter II these resplendent garments document a unique dialogue between military uniform, court dress, European fashion, and traditional Russian dress.
