Deco Dandy : Designing Masculinity in 1920s Paris Hardback

Part of the Studies in Design and Material Culture series

Hardback

Description

Deco dandy contests the supposedly exclusive feminine aspect of the style moderne (art deco) by exploring how alternative, parallel and overlapping experiences of decorative modernism, nationalism, gender and sexuality in the years surrounding World War I converge in the protean figure of the 'deco dandy'.

The book suggests a broader view of art deco by claiming a greater place for the male body, masculinity and the dandy in this history than has been given to date.

Important and productive moments in the history of the cultural life of Paris presented in the book provide insights into the changing role performed by consumerism, masculinity, design history and national identity. -- .
