The Language of Fashion
By Roland Barthes, edited by Andy Stafford and Michael Carter, translated by Andy Stafford
Roland Barthes, widely regarded as one of the most subtle and perceptive critics of the twentieth century, was particularly fascinated by fashion and clothing. The Language of Fashion brings together all Barthes' untranslated writings on fashion.
Both critic and literary essayist, his writings continue to provoke. A cultural commentator before his time, his careful if playful analysis of texts revolutionised the way cultural products are comprehended.
