I just wanted to offer an alternative viewpoint to P.Campbell's review. What they say is correct, in that there is a lot of academic language in this book, but I think only to a degree that is appropriate to the level the book is aimed at.

The book refers to the 'dialectic' of fashion, there's a lot of 'mediating the body' etc, and true, Mr Davis does use the word 'apercu', which I will admit is nearly unforgiveable, when 'perception' would have done just as well.

However overall this book reads in tone pretty similar to an issue of 'Dress, Body, Culture'. It's a standard text for graduate research - you HAVE to read this if you are serious about fashion theory. It's really pretty accessible for a university level text; much more so than Barthe's fashion writing.

So, although it's not for everyone,I found this is a clear and insightful look at the way our culture and our dress influence each other.

Anyone who loves studying about fashion will enjoy this book. It presents and comments on the major fashion theories, and it is not overly academic. I definitely recommend it!

This book is a psychologist's dream, but not so much for those who are interested in finding a fashion identity or making a fashion statement.
