Ingersoll, Joanne Dolan, editor
Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920-1980

Quarto. 190 pp; 160 color photographs; 54 color & b/w illustrations. Paperback. A fine, unused copy, with no internal marks; covers bright and free from wear. Cocktail drinking inspired a new language of dress and design in the twentieth century. Distinctly American, the cocktail tradition was established during Prohibition. The risque spirit of cocktail drinking - infused with exclusive company, glamour, and witty conversation and heightened by the possibility of overindulgence - continued to energize social entertaining in America in the decades that followed. The exhibition traces the shifting shapes, materials, and embellishments of cocktail-inspired attire and barware, highlighting their elegance and inventiveness with an eye to the rapid social changes that shaped their design. Exhibition held at Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, April 15 to July 31, 2011.
