Size: Size of the print: 7 x 8 1/4 inches. Condition: Excellent condition. Printed on heavier smoother finish paper. Legend: WHILE THE TRADITIONS OF THE MIDDLE AGES persisted through the 15th and 16th centuries so far as women's costume was concerned, men's costume changed radically. This was mainly the result of Italian influences following Charles Vlll's expedition to Italy. Some experts think that this was the most gracious and elegant of all the different ages of costume in France. (1.x refers to top row, 2.x to bottom row): The illustrations in the top row shows various forms of hats worn in this time period. They were made of thick fabric, typically turn up all the way to top of the head. In 1.4, 1.6 8 we see a chaperon with ends falling loosely at the back. Man's headgear that consisted of toques and in 1.2 they are shown with flaps turned-up. 1.5 7 depicts a bonnet with a embroidered hood. They are of Flemish origin and were worn at the end of the 15th Century. One striking change was that the doublet no longer had a collar, so that the top of the shirt could be seen. To compensate, the turned down collars of coats and gowns became longer and longer, until they extended almost to the middle of the back (2.2 4). When a ceremonial coat was not worn, it was replaced by a collarless cape, put on over the doublet and left open at the front (2.5 6). Men's headgear consisted of toques and bicoquets, worn separately or one on top of one another, and various types of bonnet. 2.2 4 show bonnets with rims at the front. Toques with small upturned brims can be seen in 2.5, 6 7. Another similar style of toque decorated with a plume, can be seen in 2.1. Many of the hats are worn over a decorative bicoquet and attached with long ribbons. Metal clasps and heavy necklaces were favoured by the French nobility at the end of the 15th century, in one of the last vestiges of the Flemish influence that had originated with the Count of Burgundy. They were soon to be seen less often, however, as Italian styles gained in popularity. Some Flemish styles were to be seen in French women's headdress, as well.
