Summary

Who first introduced Manolo Blahnik to Americans: Vogue, or a canny buyer at Bendel's? Where under one roof can shoppers find Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, and Hermes? Here are the great retail palacesfrom Harrods to Barneys to Galeries Lafayettewhere shoppers spend their day in opulent settings, drifting from cosmetics to shoes, stopping for lunch, the hairdresser, and endless temptations along the way. With photographs and ephemera from all over the world, this lavish book goes beyond in-store extravaganzas to the history of these consumer institutions, the personalities behind them, their vast range of goods, unique architecture, advertising, and associated sociological trends. With perfumed air and chandeliers, department stores have lured millions for over a century with that enticing, dizzying sense that no matter how much you already have, there is always more.
