William "Braveheart" Wallace did battle in it. Queen Victoria
decked Balmoral in it. Madonna donned it to strut around the stage.
Tartan, the beloved symbol of kin, clan and nation to the Scots,
has evolved into the one of the world's favorite fabrics. Serving
as inspiration for designers of everything from haute couture to
furniture, tartan mania is in full swing. Fashion world insiders
Jeffrey Banks and Doria de La Chapelle have written the definitive
book on tartan, bringing together a dizzying array of images to
tell the story of tartan's humble beginnings to its current status
as the ultimate emblem of great taste and high fashion. In addition
to chronicling tartan enthusiasts from every age-including the
incomparably fashionable Duke of Windsor whose closet was
jam-packed with tartan kilts-"Tartan" profiles the designers who've
made tartan an integral part of their work, from punk-inspired
provocateurs Vivienne Westwood, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Alexander
McQueen to the more refined fashions of titan Ralph Lauren and
Burberry. The perfect mix of a fashion and lifestyle book, this
volume explores the global phenomena of tartan mania.
