Legend: THESE WOMEN'S COSTUMES COME FROM the west of Germany at the end of the 16th century. Although later than those shown in the work of Titian, the great Italian painter, and slightly different from them - especially in details such as the long trains - we can nevertheless gain some information from the various descriptions that Titian left of German fashions. However, these prove that in many instances Titian was less well informed than the Fleming, Abraham de Bruyn. Order of figures: 1 2 3 4 5 5 6 7 8 Although new fashion ideas did have their effect in Germany, they were far from being as influential as they were everywhere else in Europe. For example, the costume worn by the lady in 2, is hardly in keeping with contemporary European styles. She has a tall hat, a bare throat, dropped shoulders, a long train of furs worn over a skirt that also has a long train, and plaited hair secured over her ears. This last fashion dates back to the Middle Ages, as does the loose hair of the unmarried woman in 1. In France, Italy, England, Spain and Flanders, women wore their hair in buns. They wore collars in fan-shapes, or turned down, with epaulettes and loose sleeves hanging from the epaulettes at the back. German women were slow to adopt these standard European styles. The illustration here of a matron from Augsburg (4) brings to mind Titian's description of a middle-class Bavarian woman. As an outer garment both wear a coat of the type invented by Catherine de Medici - it is fastened across the chest, with sides that flare out over the skirt and leg-of-mutton sleeves. The coat described by Titian also has an upright collar supporting the ruff. In the rest of Europe, collars had lapels. Here, the restrictive collars that rise from closed corsages are more in the style of the 14th and 15th centuries. Examples are seen 1, 2, 3 and 6. Titian tells us that coats were generally embroidered with gold thread or silk in the form of a band round the bottom of the garment. The coats here do not show this band of embroidery; by this time the style had gone out of fashion, since it tended to make women look smaller in an age when height was all-important. The winter costumes of the two noblewomen from Augsburg (2 3) are similar to the costume worn by the middle-class woman in 4. The corsage is closed, with the collar rising out of it to join a fluted ruff. The coat has lapels' and a lining of a contrasting colour. As a sign of rank, it is longer than the coat in 4, and by the same token, the noblewomen's coats have very short leg-of-mutton sleeves. All three ladies wear white aprons, decorated with bands near the bottom, and carry gloves. The noblewomen are wearing chain jewelry over their corsages. 1. This young lady has neither coat, nor apron. Her hair is drawn back over her ears and plaited down the back, while her toque is worn right on the top of the head and is discreetly plumed. Her dรฉcolletage is cut square, in the Italian style, and her throat is covered by a guimpe. 5,6,7, and 8. The four costumes in the bottom strip are those of noblewomen from Nuremberg. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Overall view detail: ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
