Modern days – 1920’s fashion

{Inspiration – Monday}: It’s through 1500 images that the newly published – Una giornata Moderna – tells the story of Italian fashion between the years 1922 and 1943.


The book explores fashion in relation to international trends and the influences of  Italian political movement,  Fascism. 


Photography is characterised by a sense of order and industrial aesthetic.


Definitively a look back into history, an explanatory book to understand fashion and its roots.
