Gilding the Market: Luxury and Fashion in Fourteenth-Century Italy (The Middle Ages Series)
In the fourteenth century, garish ornaments, bright colors, gilt, and military effects helped usher in the age of fashion in Italy. Over a short span of years important matters began to turn on the cut of a sleeve. Fashion influenced consumption and provided a stimulus that drove demand for goods and turned wealthy townspeople into enthusiastic consumers. Making wise decisions about the alarmingly expensive goods that composed a fashionable wardrobe became a matter of pressing concern, especially when the market caught on and became awash in cheaper editions of luxury wares.
Focusing on the luxury trade in fashionable wear and accessories in Venice, Florence, and other towns in Italy, Gilding the Market investigates a major shift in patterns of consumption at the height of medieval prosperity, which, more remarkably, continued through the subsequent era of plague, return of plague, and increased warfare. A fine sensitivity to the demands of "le pompe," that is, the public display of private wealth, infected town life. The quest for luxuries affected markets by enlarging exchange activity and encouraging retail trades. As both consumers and tradesmen, local goldsmiths, long-distance traders, bankers, and money changers played important roles in creating this new age of fashion.
In response to a greater public display of luxury goods, civic sumptuary laws were written to curb spending and extreme fashion, but these were aimed at women, youth, and children, leaving townsmen largely unrestricted in their consumption. With erudition, grace, and an evocative selection of illustrations, some reproduced in full color, Susan Mosher Stuard explores the arrival of fashion in European history.

Owning and wearing the latest fashion from historic fashion brands like: Chanel, LV and Hermes used to be only reserved for the elite who could afford these coveted items. But the luxury fashion environment has changed and now luxury fashion has entered the consumer market. Luxury fashion brands are introducing more affordable product lines, luxury fashion consumers are trading-down their wardrobes and high-street fashion brands like H&M and Zara are offering luxury style products at low prices and are advertising in high-end publications like Vogue. Consumers have more choice than ever before and are combining luxury fashion with high- street fashion items. In short the luxury fashion market is facing a threat from the mass market and has to deal with a more demanding and individualistic luxury fashion consumer than ever before. Luxury Fashion Management will examine these changes on the luxury fashion market and explores the implications of this new environment for the branding and marketing strategies of luxury fashion brands.
