Notes

Handsomely produced by the rising print and graphics firm of Georges Lang for the renowned Parisian department store Galeries Lafayette, this is a superbly preserved example of an essentially ephemeral 1920s mainstream fashion catalogue.

The catalogue is replete with stylish illustrations, mostly full-page, of the women's modes of the day, including coats, dresses, lingerie, accessories, some signed by Paul Valentin, together with a smattering children's and men's clothing, homeware, haberdashery, and notions. From humble beginnings in a small haberdashers on rue Lafayette, cousins Théophile Bader and Alphonse Kahn built an international empire with a its flagship shop in a palatial purpose-built art nouveau building on the Boulevard Haussmann, where weekly fashion shows are still held to this day.
