1000 Dessous: A History of Lingerie / Eine Geschicte der Reizwasche Histoire de la Lingerie (25th Anniversary Special Edtn) [ペーパーバック]

Gilles Neret





This is an intimate exploration of the props of our theatre of desire.Since the beginning of civilization, women have worn underwear. Justified as protection, or a hygienic necessity, this "second skin" was devised to satisfy perverse erotic instincts. A "trap laid by Venus" to entertain and stimulate the fantasies of both the woman who wears them and the man who discovers them. Corsets, bras and panties are not utilitarian items - they are elements in a mystic ritual linking man and woman. They act as an obsessive focus for fantasy, for the sex they conceal is powerless without the decorations and seductions which separate us from it. Pleasure would perish without censorship.Women have always known how to stimulate the latent fetishism of the men around them. Under her dress, a Greek girl of the classical period would wear a belt around her hips which was of no practical use except to draw attention to her feminity. Likewise, the women of Rome already wore garters round their thighs, though the stocking had not yet been invented. In our own century, vamps, starlets, pin-ups and models have filled our cinema screens, our advertising hoardings, our office calendars and our imaginations with the erotic engineering of the garter belt and the surreptitious rustle of nylon stockings."Dessous" traces the evolution of this living mythology from its first steps in the dawn of civilization to its apotheosis in the films and advertising campaigns of the modern world. Lavishly illustrated, it demonstrates how the conflict between the need to conceal and the will to reveal has provided women with the means to explore their own sexuality and exercise an erotic ascendancy over men. The result is a richly aphrodisiacal meditation, an intimate exploration of the props of our theatre of desire.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Really IS the history of lingerie... 2009/10/16
投稿者 Michael Valdivielso - (Amazon.com)
This book looks small but in fact is very, very thick, so has lots of photos and images. Deals with the history of lingerie - with chapters on lingerie in film and in advertising. Fun, but treated as a serious history. Some lingerie is very sexy and some makes you think, why did they make that?
Very much for adults because of the mature subject of the book. If you are interested in lingerie, photography, pin-ups or the female form, this kind of fits into your interest.

5つ星のうち 5.0 I've been looking for something like this! 2010/2/5

I picked up my copy at a Barnes & Noble recently and was amazed at how thick it was. This is an illustrated history of lingerie and I the main reason for me buying it was that it contains many pics from old lingerie campaigns. I love this kind of thing and to find it in a high quality book like this, instead of searching for original overpriced magazines and catalog on ebay make it all the better. Starts with the early days of lingerie and goes right into the modern era. This book is strictly for adults because it does contain several images of women wearing see thru panties, so keep this one out of reach of the little ones.
A book that brought back a lot of memories for me (I would peep at the lingerie ads in my mom's fashion magazines all the time back in the 70s). It's very sexy and erotic, but serious at the same time. A memorable trip down a lace covered memory lane.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Great collection in paperback 2010/1/31

I have had this book for about a decade, and just purchased the re-issue and gave as a gift. It's a nice collection of photos. Very thick book, people always struggle not to break the spine.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Mostly Pictures 2012/2/22
投稿者 Ava - (Amazon.com)
I thought when I bought it I was buying a book that would give me a detailed account of the history of lingerie. Instead, I got a book of pictures of lingerie throughout the ages (mostly from advertisements) with small but informative captions. Aside from a small introduction, it is cover to cover photos - which is great, if that's what you're looking for. Also, buyer beware, it shows everything. If you don't want a book lying around your house with graphic nudity in it this isn't your book. It's more of an extremely adult coffee table book than a historical account. It wasn't what I was looking for, really - so I was disappointed. It's also not really sexy enough to be a book of erotic photos, in my opinion, so I wouldn't recommend you buy it for that reason if that's what you're looking for. If you're indeed looking for a collection of pictures of old lingerie advertisements and a few professional photographs of lingerie throughout the ages, that's what this is.

Sexy, beautiful and informative. This book was gifted to a fashion industry friend with an Agent Provocateur love and made her day and her coffee table. Petite and worth the blush of ordering.
