Magnificence of the Tsars : Ceremonial Men's Dress of the Russian Imperial Court 1721-1917 Paperback
The grandeur of Imperial Russia is captured in this spectacular book featuring the dress and uniforms of Emperors and officials of the Russian court.
Starting in the 1730s with lavishly embroidered coats and elaborately patterned silk banyans from the wardrobe of Tsar Peter II and spanning a period of almost two centuries, these garments document a unique dialogue between military uniform, court dress, European fashion and traditional Russian costume. "Magnificence of the Tsars" celebrates the majesty of masculine uniform in Russia at its finest.
