Lanvin: I Love You by Alber Elbaz


Quote:
Hardcover: 260 pages
Publisher: Rizzoli International Publications (30 Sep 2014)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0847844218
ISBN-13: 978-0847844210

An important monograph on the complete work thus far of Alber Elbaz for Lanvin—one of fashion’s most transformative designers working today, who employs mise-en-scènes as a principal way of staging his work. Under the helm of present design director Alber Elbaz, Lanvin is now one of the powerhouses of Paris fashion, and his respectful nod to the origins and founding aesthetic of Lanvin is tempered by an unrivaled, transformative energy that has created a new, youthful audience for the house. One of the pillars of Elbaz’s work, apart from staging dynamic runway presentations, is a unique way of presenting his designs in the windows of their flagship stores, most notably in the boutique on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. These mise-en-scènes, which change every month, are well regarded as elaborate spectacles unique even in fashion. Seducing passersby into his very distinctive brand of street theater and occasionally employing prominent artists of the day, Elbaz’s windows are above all about the clothes, and his designs are given pride of place in a variety of elegant and often playful episodes. The book showcases the fashion and spirit of Lanvin with nearly two hundred compositions, from those shown at their boutiques to one-offs at the Crillon, and as far afield as Art Basel in Miami, as well as unpublished renderings of concepts hand-drawn by Elbaz

Vogue and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute: Parties, Exhibitions, People


Quote:
Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Harry N. Abrams, Inc. (1 Oct 2014)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1419714244
ISBN-13: 978-1419714245

The Metropolitan Museum's annual Costume Institute exhibition is the most prestigious event of its kind--a remarkable, must-see spectacle. With subjects that both reflect the zeitgeist and contribute to its creation, each exhibition--from 2005's "Chanel," to 2011's "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty"--creates a provocative and engaging narrative drawing hundreds of thousands of visitors. The show's opening-night gala, produced in collaboration with Vogue magazine, is regularly referred to as the Party of the Year and draws a glamorous A-list crowd. Untitled Met/Vogue begins its exploration of the event in 1971 and spans four decades, bringing us to the present. The book will offer a level of elevated, insider access only Vogue is capable of providing. Through photographs from the exhibitions themselves, as well as the fashion shoots they inspired in the pages of the magazine, catalogues, invitations and party photos from the opening-night galas, every chapter will offer a visually arresting, in-depth survey of that year's theme. Drawing from extensive Vogue archives, the fashion shoots featured will be anchored by photographs from icons such as Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino and Craig McDean, while also showcasing the editorial vision of legendary Vogue editors like Grace Coddington and Tonne Goodman and the immense knowledge and wit of writers such as Hamish Bowles and Jonathan Van Meter.

any book done by the Met is great!! I have, and recommend, Balenciaga by Pierre Arizzoli-Clémentel (ISBN: 978-0500970287). Also, there is a really huge book called Fashion: 150 Years of Couturiers, Designers, Labels. It's a great overview of different eras, designers, styles, and icons. I wish it was more encyclopedic, but anymore and the book would require a two people to lift, lol.

ISBN: 978-3869308234

On 5 March 2014, Juergen Teller photographed the eagerly anticipated first collection by Nicolas Ghesquière as the new artistic director of Louis Vuitton. In his inimitable style, Teller visualizes the designers ambitious manifesto for the luxury house: Louis Vuitton is a land of contrasts. A time-honored and noble legacy is kept alive by a yearning for discovery and exploration. Coursing boldly and imaginatively through the decades, Louis Vuitton refreshes the world of fashion with an untiring ebb and flow of retrospective and fresh perspective This initial collection tells a tale of expertise made possible by innovative techniques. It focuses on the highlights and remains open to interpretation. Living proof that todays timeless was at one time seen as innovative. In this collection, the timeless is now. This book is a collaboration between two of the most influential vanguards working in contemporary fashion. Tellers candid, unadorned aesthetic perfectly complements the restrained luxury of Ghesquières fashion, marking the beginning of a new chapter in the rich history of Louis Vuitton.

Ann Demeulemeester
Written by Ann Demeulemeester, Introduction by Patti Smith

Pub Date: October 28, 2014

The first and highly personal perspective into the work and processes of Ann Demeulemeester, one of the most influential and inspiring fashion designers of our time. Graduating from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 1981, Ann Demeulemeester (and her contemporaries in the Antwerp Six) transformed global fashion with an aggressive restatement of traditional fashion design and a polemical approach to luxury trends. Influenced by punk, she founded her label in 1985 and imbues her designs with a strong narrative and rebellious spirit. For Demeulemeester, fashion is a form of communication. Her complex language of contrasts covers a whole gamut of emotions. The tension is highly poetic, and her clothes reveal many layers of soul. Known for her elegant tailoring and dark yet glamorous aesthetic, she created a serene and darkly romantic world with an intriguing mix of edgy rebellion and sophistication. This book is a tribute to Demeulemeester’s historical career, with over 1,000 photographs approximating some of the mystery and detailing associated with her brand.

Yohji Yamamoto
Written by Yohji Yamamoto, Contribution by Wim Wenders, Steve McQueen, Charlotte Rampling and Takeshi Kitano

Pub Date: October 14, 2014

The definitive monograph on the complete work of Yohji Yamamoto—one of fashion’s most transformative designers working today and widely acknowledged as a master of postwar fashion design. Since the early ’80s, Yohji Yamamoto’s groundbreaking silhouettes and innovative design aesthetic have propelled him to the highest rank of the international avant-garde. Distinguished by his antifashion approach, Yamamoto changed the face of contemporary fashion, radically transforming it with asymmetrical and highly conceptual designs partly inspired by the techniques of traditional Japanese kimonos. His vision came as a refreshing contrast to the power suits and brightly clad fashions of the time, forcing a reconsideration of the future direction of fashion. Yamamoto launched his first collection in 1977 in Tokyo and followed this success with the debut of his experimental and critically celebrated Yohji Yamamoto label in Paris in 1981. This luxuriously bound book explores all the major themes in his thirty years of counter-fashion design. Illustrated with photographs by Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, Max Vadukul and Nick Knight, each chapter elaborates on a particular theme—his sartorial philosophy, influential extensions into scenography, runway shows, monographic exhibitions, and costume design—and is anchored by an essay or interview that lends crucial insight to the story of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most enigmatic and iconoclastic fashion designers of our time.

Glen Luchford: Pictorialism
Written by Glen Luchford, Contribution by Bella Freud

Pub Date: September 23, 2014

A visually arresting chronicle of the career of one of the top fashion photographers of a generation. Glen Luchford is a true fashion photographer’s photographer. His influential and imaginative style— iconic, elaborately lit, highly cinematic, with extreme narratives—reinvigorated fashion photography in the 1990s and 2000s. This book is a photographic artist’s diary documenting the span of Luchford’s thirty-three-year career. Presented in the form of one continuous overlapping photographic montage, the book consists of intermixed tear sheets, prints, Polaroids, objects, and ephemera. It includes the young Luchford’s first photographs of his U.K. post-punk, new romantic friends in the eighties; the best of his gritty nineties editorials, such as his iconic shoot of Kate Moss for The Face; his polished fashion work and celebrity portraits for publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and W; as well as memorable advertising campaigns for Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloé, and Calvin Klein.
