This chapter on the Chanel LBD (little black dress) contextualises the dress as part of a process of the social and cultural repositioning of the colour black, combined with new approaches to design, production, the female body and modern life. It aims to overthrow 'accepted' histories, or, better said, 'myths' within fashion studies, and instead poses a methodology which encourages a return to primary historic source material.
