      • Product Description: From camisoles to corsets, basques to boudoir caps and girdles to garters, Underwear: Fashion in Detail gets up close and personal with some of the most intimate items in the V&A. Lynn traces the evolution of underwear, drawing on 120 objects that include rare examples dating from the sixteenth century, the exaggerated shapes of eighteenth-century court dress, Dior's curvaceous 'New Look' and contemporary lingerie by Agent Provocateur and Rigby and Peller. Beautiful new photography shows close-up details of these fascinating garments, while intricate line drawings reveal their masterly construction. The book also highlights the work of designers such as Vionnet and Westwood who have taken influence from underwear for their own outer wear creations.

        Eleri Lynn is a Fashion Curator at the V&A. Previously she was the Assistant Curator of the V&A's major exhibition The Golden Age of Couture (V&A 2007).
