Synopsis: The love affair between fashion and Surrealism began in the Paris of the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion's imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture. This text reveals the extravagent and ingenious creations resulting from this collaboration. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali, and photographic experiments with Surrealist techniques by Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and George Hoyningen-Huene to the work of younger fashion designers, including Olivier Guillemin and Vivienne Westwood, who have all brought Surrealist imagery into clothing and accessories.

From Publishers Weekly: The intersection of surrealism and fashion dates back to Max Ernst's mechanistic fantasies of mannequins and Rene Magritte's delving into the eroticism of clothes. Fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, in collaboration with Salvador Dali, made surrealistic dresses that shocked her clients. Illustrators A. M. Cassandre and Marcel Vertes borrowed surrealist imagery, while fashion trend-setters Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld got into the act. Photographers Cecil Beaton, Horst P. Horst and Andre Kertesz experimented with surrealist techniques, and today, of course, surrealism is everywherein print and television ads, window displays, rock singer David Byrne's latest costumes. The book is broader in scope than its title suggests. Martin, editor of Arts magazine, brings a heavy-handed, academic approach to what should have been fun, but the study is an eye-opener nonetheless.
