What is "camp"? Drawing from Susan Sontag’s seminal essay, this striking volume explores its meaning and its expression in fashion from its origins to today “[An] amazing catalogue. . . .

Drawing from Susan Sontag’s seminal essay, this striking volume explores its meaning and its expression in fashion from its origins to today “[An] amazing catalogue. . . . Extraordinary.”—Christiane Amanpour, CNN Although an elusive concept, “camp” can be found in most forms of artistic expression, revealing itself through an aesthetic of deliberate stylization. Fashion is one of the most overt and enduring conduits of the camp aesthetic. As a site for the playful dynamics between high art and popular culture, fashion both embraces and expresses such camp modes of enactment as irony, humor, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality, and exaggeration.   Drawing from Susan Sontag’s seminal essay “Notes on Camp,” the book explores how fashion designers have used their métier as a vehicle to engage with the camp aesthetic in compelling, humorous, and sometimes incongruous ways. As a sartorial manifestation of the camp sensibility, this thought-provoking publication contributes new theoretical and conceptual insights into the camp canon through texts and images. Stunning new photography by Johnny Dufort highlights works by such fashion designers as Virgil Abloh, Thom Browne, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Alessandro Michele, Franco Moschino, Miuccia Prada, Richard Quinn, Yves Saint Laurent, Elsa Schiaparelli, Jeremy Scott, Anna Sui, Gianni Versace, and Vivienne Westwood.

    Maybe it's because I just read Fabulous, but I felt that Camp, or at least this presentation of camp, really white washes the fact that Camp is created not just by the queer community, but by black and brown queer folks. And I disagree that the aesthetics are unpolitical - even taking a "neutral" political stance is a political statement, and only white people/ the dominant class can imagine that their existence and aesthetics and way of life have zero to do with politics.

And yet they point to Versailles - epicenter to French politics - as a Camp example. Yeah that indulgence and wealth and aesthetic was completely apolitical and had no political repercussions later when the French revolution started. And the entire indulgence that characterizes Versailles was started as a very political way for Louis XIV to take control and also leave his nobles with very little to complain about/ so occupied with trivialities for political purposes.

    Notable catalogue to the exhibition, accompanied by an informative text. The book is split into two parts, one that’s mostly text (as well as some reference material), the other contains high quality photographs of the outfits included in the exhibition. The photographs provide great detail, especially thinking back to how crowded the galleries were. The introduction essay in the first book, as well as Sontag’s “Notes on Camp” are wonderful references for anyone curious to understand what is cam Notable catalogue to the exhibition, accompanied by an informative text.
