Description

In all fields - fashion, architecture, decorative arts, sculpture, music ... - the Second Empire impresses its brand, magnifying opulence, pastichant and mixing the styles of the past as those of a Far East or near. This desire to embrace everything says the appetite of a triumphant bourgeoisie and its undisguised pleasure of appropriating styles to which the kings of France have attached their name.
But, beyond a quest for historical legitimacy and the desire to appear, it is also an intimate and dreamy part that manifests itself, finding new ways of expression in the way of clothing, housing or to arrange its interior.
