Men in power: the book

Des Hommes De Pouvoir Le Bouquin Choc

While the popular motto says that « you cannot judge a book by its cover », this book demonstrates the contrary. In all the civilizations, men in power are careful when choosing their clothing in order to establish their status.

From tattoos and body paints displays by population who live nude to the Louboutin of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, including the wigs of Louis XIV, the red ribbon of the Légion d’Honneur or the casual chic style of Jack Kennedy, one decrypts through pretty images the codes and fashion trends of those who direct the world.

We like: the amusing anecdotes on their clothing details that played a role in history.
