This year as every year, when the Oscar nominations for Best Costume Design are announced, the ballot will invariably be filled with hoop skirts and tailcoats and perhaps a touch of Far East or outer space-style exotica.

Rich, complex clothing from other eras can also stand as a corrective to our own, 21st-century sartorial mediocrity.
