The Spanish Style: The Politics of Extreme Fashion in an Age of Empire, 1492-1700

Spanish fashion changed rapidly and radically with the ascent of the Spanish empire. The Spanish Style explores the impact of the imperial experience on Spanish society and culture through the development of a new national style of dress and the debates that it inspired between 1492 and 1700. This book offers a new narrative of the impact of the New World on the Old by examining materials textiles and clothing that were of utmost importance in the early modern world, although they have been marginalized in the historiography. Through visual, archival, and literary sources, this project explores the multiple perspectives of the men and women who made, wore, and debated the controversial extreme fashions that symbolized Spain at home and throughout the Spanish empire.
