Item description for Tibet Style by Hippolyte Romain...

The intimate photographs in this volume magnificently celebrate Tibet's ethnic nomads, a displaced, endangered civilization of wisdom and beauty. Stark, stunning landscapes, fortress-like monasteries on high slopes and a bitterly cold winter climate form the magnificent setting for the extravagant fashions worn by the nomadic tribes that inhabit the region. Bearing all the wealth, pride, and honor they have inherited from their ancestors, their finery includes one-armed fur-lined coats, extravagant beaded necklaces, brightly colored fabrics with simple geometric patterns, chased silver jewels studded with semi-precious stones, silk brocade, and scarlet pulu robes laden with coral and silver jewelry. Their sophisticated sense of elegance is unrivaled and their special art of freedom and exuberance opens a new dimension to our traditional notions of Tibetan culture. The surprising originality and trend-inspiring nature of these photographs make this an idea source for fashion and interior designers alike, as well as a celebration of Tibetan culture.
Hippolyte Romain is a journalist for France's Le Figaro Madame, as well as a writer and painter. He divides his time between China and Paris. Yann Romain has been a fashion photographer for the last fifteen years. He lives in Beijing and travels widely through China's remote provinces.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tibet Style?

A delightful photo essay recording the innate sense of style in the way the beautiful Tibetan people have dressed themselves for centuries. The combinations and compositions of textiles, color, animal skins , embellishments and ornamentation is nothing less than spectacular...considering they had no access to any parisian couture salon. Often with many cases of tribal dressing, there is more function than pure design at work, but despite, the aesthetic is stunningly raw, yet eye catchingly oppulent. And their natural rugged, even harsh, environment only enhances the glorious, majestic glamour of their native clothing.
