Falbalas & Fanfreluches: almanach des modes, présentes, passées et futures pour 1923.

Barbier, George (illus.)

Paris: Meynial, 1923. Small quarto. 12pp., + (12)ff. colored plates. One of 600 copies. Art Deco legend George Barbier contributed fashion plates to several albums and almanacs starting in 1912 before finally starting his own publication in 1922 titled Falbalas et Fanfreluches. Each annual issue included an almanac for the year, a guest essay, and twelve bright pochoir plates. Not all of the plates are traditional fashion plates; Barbier chose to include many fantastical renderings of period and foreign costumes and folk dress, presented in his usual elegant style. Falbalas et Fanfreluches was issued from 1922 through 1926, making this the second of five total issues. This 1923 edition includes “Modes” by Colette, as well as a color-illustrated title page and an additional black & white headpiece. Near fine, loose as issued in a chemise, illustrated with a trio of women surrounded by feathers and pearls, and original glassine. Item #27432

(Colas 1026).
