Fotografie di Jacques Paul. Testo Italiano, Francese e Inglese. Milano, 2008; br., pp. 260, ill. col., cm 26x34,5. Patrimony, in the XVIII century of the wealthiest women of Marocco, today caftans are the symbol of Moroccan female culture, a sure indicator of the social status of the wearer, the garment that testifies to the art of living of a people undergoing weeping change, tied to its traditions and at the same time oriented towards the artistic trends of the West. Caftans is conceived as a journey through the art of Moroccan fashion from its origins to our day, a book that retraces the history of caftans by presenting the collections by Tetouan, Féz, Rabat and Salé: caftans that reveal the most noble episodes of the royal and princely families, as well as of those rich merchants of Morocco. In addition, Caftans explores the current evolution of caftans at a time when the wearing of the caftan, in the XX century, has come back into fashion thanks to the great creative talent of Tamy Tazy and of the new stylists such as Barada, Mao, Fadyla El Gadi and Nourredine, as well as a multitude of tailors who fashion true sartorial masterworks from which even such great stylists as Yves Saint Laurent and Jean Paul Gautier take their cue. Caftans opens the doors of the greatest collectors of caftans of the past, and of the most secret and prestigious ateliers; meets both innovative creators and those more tied to tradition; witnesses thrilling fashion shows; and places devoted entirely to paying homage to one of the most fascinating chapters of female fashion.

Buchbeschreibung Skira, 2011. Photography Graziano Villa. French/english text. Milano, 2011; clothbound, pp. 192, 180 col, ill. and plates, cm 24x30. (Moda e Costume). This book of brilliant colours and striking images takes us on an extraordinary journey through an outstanding, never-seen-before collection Tamy Tazi has set her own special mark of distinction on contemporary Moroccan dress: ceremonial or everyday caftans, djellabas, selhams (capes), jackets and serouals. Her models embrace two remarkable traditions that both resist the pressures of time. One is the haute couture that has long been Tamy Tazi's daily bread as Yves Saint-Laurent's representative in Morocco. The other is the Moroccan heritage, but not that growing out of the early days Moroccan independence with its glimmers of women's emancipation. Tazi has researched a deeper, more singular tradition, stripping it of folksiness and revitalising it. The union of these two vital sources, each inseminating the other with a grammar that is as articulate as it is festive, has generated a new style in caftans that daringly distinguish themselves from either parent. This book will not only appeal to caftan fans, but to anyone with interest in Morocco culture and fashion.
