Synopsis:

Chronicling the birth of haute couture and haute cuisine, this illustrated account documents how the young, charismatic, and attractive King Louis XIV—the first man to wear silk stockings, high heels, and cover himself entirely with diamonds—played a major role in the origin of French style. This detailed analysis combines historical research with fanciful anecdotes in order to describe how the French established standards of sophistication, style, and elegance that today's international chefs, famous hairstylists, distinguished cafés, and elegant hotspots still aspire to meet.

Una crónica del nacimiento de la haute couture, este cuento ilustrado documenta como el joven, carismático, y atractivo rey Louis XIV—el primer hombre que vistió con medias de seda, zapatos de tacón, y que se cubrió enteramente de brillantes—desempeñó un papel importante en el origen del estilo francés. Este análisis detallado combina información histórica con anécdotas fantasiosas para describir cómo los franceses establecieron los estándares de sofisticación, estilo y elegancia que los chefs internacionales, los peluqueros célebres, los cafés distinguidos, y la vida nocturna y elegante hoy en día todavía aspiran satisfacer.

About the Author: Joan DeJean is a trustee professor of French at the University of Pennsylvania who has taught at Princeton and Yale universities. She has received numerous distinctions, including the Guggenheim and National Endowment for Humanities fellowships. She lives in Philadelphia.
