A smart book on fashion that might be described as Karl Marx meets Alexander McQueen, with chapters on haunting, phantasmagoria, glamour, and cruelty. Evans, a professor at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, explores why a lot of fashion imagery has become so dark and decadent. There are many terrific pictures.
