A large 239 page catalogue of the lines that were blurred between the art movement of Surrealism and Fashion. The time when art was a cultural movement and how it integrated into over disciplines. Surrealism was the stepchild of the Dada Movement which brought theory and cultural ideologies into the fold. Of course before, the post Modernist abandoned the rules and regulations of the academy artists but it wasn't till the Dada movement art was moving into the cultural happenings of the time and used as a weapon against the ruling status quo. Surrealism dove deeper in the field of psychology and artist as a thinking bohemian, becoming more outlandish and mystical and culturally further extreme. 
Fashion has always been a sign post to the what was different and new and hip, mocking and abandoning the established norms, but during the time of the surrealist, circa post WWI, fashion icons would align themselves with the movement's titans of the time but would also seek out these artist to co create new and "different" pieces. 
Full of Black and White and color images along with drawings and stills, this amazing book dives in but shows how close these two fields worked together.
