9780195115796: Fetish: Fashion, Sex & Power: Fashion, Sex and Power
Review:

Kinky boots, corsets, underwear as outerwear, second-skin garments of rubber and leather, uniforms, body piercing. Today everything from a fetishist's dream appears on the fashion runways. Although some people regard fetish fashion as exploitative and misogynistic, others interpret it as a positive Amazonian statement—couture Catwoman. But the connection between fashion and fetishism goes far beyond a few couture collections. For the past thirty years, the iconography of sexual fetishism has been increasingly assimilated into popular culture. Before Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman, there was Mrs. Peel, heroine of the 1960s television show "The Avengers," who wore a black leather catsuit modeled on a real fetish costume. Street styles like punk and the gay "leatherman" look also testify to the influence of fetishism.
as interviews with individuals involved in sexual fetishism, sadomasochism, and cross-dressing, to illuminate the complex relationship between appearance and identity. Based on years of research, Fetish: Fashion, Sex & Power explains how a paradigm shift in attitudes toward sex and gender has given rise to the phenomenon of fetish fashion.

Providing provocative answers to such questions as: Why is black regarded as the sexiest color? Is fetishizing the norm for males? Does fetish fashion reflect a fear of AIDS? And why do so many people love shoes? Steel shows how human sexuality is never just a matter of doing what comes naturally; fantasy always plays an important role.

Review:

"Steele has, once again, written a--no pun intended--masterful study."--Richard Martin, Curator, The Costume Institute, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Descripción Oxford University Press, USA. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 280 pages. Dimensions: 9.9in. x 6.9in. x 0.8in.Kinky boots, corsets, underwear as outerwear, second-skin garments of rubber and leather, uniforms, body piercing. . . . Today everything from a fetishists dream appears on the fashion runways. Although some people regard fetish fashion as exploitative and misogynistic, others interpret it as a positive Amazonian statement-couture Catwoman. But the connection between fashion and fetishism goes far beyond a few couture collections. For the past thirty years, the iconography of sexual fetishism has been increasingly assimilated into popular culture. Before Michelle Pfeiffers Catwoman, there was Mrs. Peel, heroine of the 1960s television show The Avengers, who wore a black leather catsuit modeled on a real fetish costume. Street styles like punk and the gay leatherman look also testify to the influence of fetishism. The concept of fetishism has recently assumed a growing importance in critical thinking about the cultural construction of sexuality. Yet until now no scholar with an in-depth knowledge of fashion history has studied the actual clothing fetishes themselves. Nor has there been a serious exploration of the historical relationship between fashion and fetishism, although erotic styles have changed significantly and sexual chic has become increasingly conspicuous. Cultural historian Valerie Steele has devoted much of her career to the study of the relationship between clothing and sexuality, and is uniquely qualified to write this book. Marshalling a dazzling array of evidence from pornography, psychology, and history, as well as interviews with individuals involved in sexual fetishism, sadomasochism, and cross-dressing, Steele illuminates the complex relationship between appearance and identity. Based on years of research, her book Fetish: Fashion, Sex and Power explains how a paradigm shift in attitudes toward sex and gender has given rise to the phenomenon of fetish fashion.

Descripción Oxford University Press, 1997. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Steele's greatest strengths here are her flexible perspective and her deft negotiation of various theoretical perspectives.A thought-provoking overview of the relationship between sex and clothing."--Publishers Weekly"Valerie Steele is to kinky dressing what Anne Rice is to vampires: an interpreter of desires beyond our ken. She deals in riveting stuff: the way the culture talks dirty--most of the time without even noticing--through clothes."--Christa Worthington, Elle"In elegant prose Valerie Steele explores the ambiguous region of fetish dressing, where perverse sex meets high fashion. Her analysis of the gendered meanings of fetish garments is both witty and profound, as she explores the sexual fantasies played out in dress, and the ambivalence with which we regard them today as the boundary between the 'normal' and the 'perverse' seems, she suggests, to be disappearing."--Elizabeth Wilson, Professor of Social Sciences,Polytechnic of North London and author of Adorned in Dreams: Fashion and Modernity"Fashion historian Valerie Steele charts an enlightened, occasionally startling, course through the significant subjects of fetishism, sexuality, and apparel.Her approach is never judgmental or aloof: she realizes that clothing is an intimate identity and self-expression. Steele has, once again, written a--no pun intended--masterful study, affiliating fashion with the supreme power of the body."--Richard Martin, Curator, The Costume Institute, TheMetropolitan Museum of Art.
