BOOK DESCRIPTION

The world’s fascination with the grandeur of the Russian Imperial family endures. This book, now in a soft cover edition, examines the family’s collection of men’s fashion. It is illustrated with extraordinary new photographs taken at the Kremlin and accompanied by 18th- and 19th-century portraits and photographs of the Tsars, their families, and their court.

With specially commissioned photographs of never-before-seen clothing, Magnificence of the Tsars celebrates the majesty of masculine uniform in Russia at its finest. The luxurious, opulent lifestyles enjoyed by the Russian tsars, their families, and courts were among the world’s most extravagant for nearly two centuries, continue to be a source of endless fascination today. In this exquisitely illustrated collection, the grandeur of Imperial Russia is displayed in full. Starting in the 1730s with exquisitely embroidered coats and elaborately patterned silks from the wardrobe of Tsar Peter II to Nicholas II, these resplendent garments document a unique dialogue between military uniform, court dress, European fashion, and traditional Russian dress.
