Paris has been the international capital of fashion for more than 300 years. Even before the rise of the haute couture, Parisians were notorious for their obsession with fashion, and foreigners eagerly followed their lead. From Charles Frederick Worth to Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent, fashion history is dominated by the names of Parisian couturiers. But Valerie Steele's Paris Fashion is much more than just a history of great designers. This fascinating book demonstrates that the success of Paris ultimately rests on the strength of its fashion culture - created by a host of fashion performers and spectators, including actresses, dandies, milliners, artists, and writers. First published in 1988 to great international acclaim, this pioneering book has now been completely revised and brought up to date, encompassing the rise of fashion's multiple world cities in the 21st century. Lavishly illustrated, deeply learned, and elegantly written, Valerie Steele's masterwork explores with brilliance and flair why Paris remains the capital of fashion.

  • Warhol and class
  • Varieties of pop
  • Warhol's participatory culture
  • Warhol's brand images
  • Warhol, modernism, egalitarianism
  • Conclusion: Warhol's neoliberalism.
This book explores Andy Warhol's creative engagement with social class. During the 1960s, as neoliberalism perpetuated the idea that fixed classes were a mirage and status an individual achievement, Warhol's work appropriated images, techniques, and technologies that have long been described as generically "American" or "middle class." Drawing on archival and theoretical research into Warhol's contemporary cultural milieu, Grudin demonstrates that these features of Warhol's work were in fact closely associated with the American working class. The emergent technologies which Warhol conspicuously employed to make his work home projectors, tape recorders, film and still cameras were advertised directly to the working class as new opportunities for cultural participation. What's more, some of Warhol's most iconic subjects Campbell's soup, Brillo pads, Coca-Cola were similarly targeted, since working-class Americans, under threat from a variety of directions, were thought to desire the security and confidence offered by national brands. Having propelled himself from an impoverished childhood in Pittsburgh to the heights of Madison Avenue, Warhol knew both sides of this equation: the intense appeal that popular culture held for working-class audiences and the ways in which the advertising industry hoped to harness this appeal in the face of growing middle-class skepticism regarding manipulative marketing. Warhol was fascinated by these promises of egalitarian individualism and mobility, which could be profound and deceptive, generative and paralyzing, charged with strange forms of desire. By tracing its intersections with various forms of popular culture, including film, music, and television, Grudin shows us how Warhol's work disseminated these promises, while also providing us with a record of their intricate tensions and transformations.

  • Historical overview of evolving design protection efforts
  • Design piracy from a legal perspective
  • Origins of design piracy in the US women's ready-to-wear
  • Development and promotion of a US design presence
  • Design piracy and self-regulation : the fashion originators'
  • Design protection arguments
  • The Fashion Originators' Guild of America : controversy and defeat
  • Original, adaptation, copy, reproduction.
The intersection of women's fashion and big business in the US has always been a compelling study across social strata. The ready-to-wear apparel industry thrives on creating a presumably original design that is then interpreted into copies. Called design piracy by some and the knock-off process by most in the industry, copying fashion designs is a firmly embedded business strategy that predates even the advent of women's ready-to-wear in the late nineteenth century. Historically, some industry organizations and individual designers accepted and supported copying as crucial to the transmission of fashion; others strove to prevent the practice, arguing harms ranging from lost profits to the abuse of labor. Threaded through the complicated and fascinating history of US ready-towear fashion are more than eighty attempts to legislate for design protection, and countless efforts to stymie piracy through patents, trademarking, or industry self-regulation. The authors analyze legal and apparel industry documents; governmental reports; and their own primary research conducted in museums, archives, and special collections to shed light on arguments both for and against design piracy. A main focus is the Fashion Originators Guild of America (FOGA), one of the most successful industry organizations to attempt design protection. Knock It Off puts into perspective the conflicting interests that have always set fashion design apart from other creative works and continue to make the industry an endlessly perplexing and risky business.

"L'un et l'autre couturiers de métier, Jacques Doucet (1853-1929) et Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008) furent également des collectionneurs de génie. À la recherche d'un certain absolu, ils ont tous deux créé des "espaces-collections" dans leurs maisons, qui formaient des expositions inédites, de véritables installations artistiques. Créateurs de beauté, esthètes, ils ont chacun incarné le "goût" dans leur époque. Brancusi, Braque, Chirico, Gray, Legrain, Matisse, Picasso... de nombreux artistes ont habité successivement leurs appartements-musées de la rue Saint-James et de la rue de Babylone. Croisements, rencontres, confrontations, les collections d'art constituées par Jacques Doucet et Yves Saint Laurent sont, par bien des aspects, des "vases communicants", et c'est le mystère de cette transmission qui est au coeur de cet ouvrage. Les reproductions d'oeuvres prestigieuses et des vues des intérieurs et accrochages personnels des deux couturiers-collectionneurs permettent de plonger dans l'intimité de ces appartements devenus légendaires."--P.

This fascinating publication is the first to examine side by side the careers and work of two of the biggest names in 20th-century fashion, Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008) and Halston (1932-1990). Their designs-chic, sexy, and glamorous-came to exemplify the 1970s, a singular and dynamic era in fashion history. Inspired by menswear, foreign cultures, and wide-ranging historical periods, and employing new fabrics, YSL and Halston together crafted a new and distinctly modern way of dressing. Moreover, although their output differed and they were based on different continents, the two designers shared many career parallels. A visual timeline of the designers' lives illustrates how their rises and falls, from the 1950s to their respective struggles in the 1980s, were surprisingly in sync. Engaging passages by Patricia Mears and Emma McClendon discuss the social, cultural, and economic factors that influenced both designers, and their subsequent impact on fashion-including the rise of the star designer as personality, the cult of celebrity, and the creation of the fashion conglomerate. The authors also address the importance of color, cutting-edge materials, innovative construction techniques, accessories, and perfume to both designers' aesthetics. Remarkable photographs of the designers and their garments round out this essential volume on two figures who made an indelible mark on fashion history.

  • Archiving Arnold Newman, by Roy Flukinger-- Introduction: Arnold Newman Works, by Marianne Fulton Plates Acknowledgments.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)9780292744912 20160612
A driven perfectionist with inexhaustible curiosity about people, Arnold Newman was one of the twentieth century's greatest and most prolific photographers. In a career that spanned nearly seven decades and produced many iconic works, Newman became renowned for making "pictures of people" (he objected to the term "portraits") in the places where they worked and lived - the spaces that were most expressive of their inner lives. Refusing the label of "art photographer, " Newman also accepted magazine and advertising commissions and executed them to the same exacting standards that characterized all of his work. He spent countless hours training aspiring photographers, sharing his own vast experience, but allowing them the freedom to experiment and discover. Rich with materials from Newman's extensive archive in the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, Arnold Newman: At Work offers unprecedented, first-hand insights into the evolution of the photographer's creativity. Reproduced here are not only many of Newman's signature images, but also contact sheets, Polaroids, and work prints with his handwritten notes, which allow us to see the process by which he produced the images. Pages from his copious notebooks and calendars reveal Newman's meticulous preparation and exhausting schedule. Adsheets and magazine covers from Holiday, LIFE, Newsweek, Look, Esquire, Seventeen, Time, and Sports Illustrated show the range of Newman's largely unknown editorial work. Roy Flukinger provides a contextual overview of the archive, and Marianne Fulton's introduction highlights the essential moments in the development of Newman's life and work.

Welcome to the world of the sharp-suited 'faces'. The Italianistas. The scooter-riding, all-night-dancing instigators of what became, from its myriad sources, a very British phenomenon. Mod began life as the quintessential working-class movement of a newly affluent nation - a uniquely British amalgam of American music and European fashions that mixed modern jazz with modernist design in an attempt to escape the drab conformity, snobbery and prudery of life in 1950s Britain. But what started as a popular cult became a mainstream culture, and a style became a revolution. In "Mod", Richard Weight tells the story of Britain's biggest and most influential youth cult. He charts the origins of Mod in the Soho jazz scene of the 1950s, set to the cool sounds of Charlie Parker and Miles Davis. He explores Mod's heyday in Swinging London in the mid-60s - to a new soundtrack courtesy of the Small Faces, the Who and the Kinks. He takes us to the Mod-Rocker riots at Margate and Brighton, and into the world of fashion and design dominated by Twiggy, Mary Quant and Terence Conran. But Mod did not end in the 1960s. Richard Weight not only brings us up to the cult's revival in the late 70s - played out against its own soundtrack of Quadrophenia and the Jam - but reveals Mod to be the DNA of British youth culture, leaving its mark on glam and Northern Soul, punk and Two Tone, Britpop and rave. This is the story of Britain's biggest and brassiest youth movement - and of its legacy. Music, film, fashion, art, architecture and design - nothing was untouched by the eclectic, frenetic, irresistible energy of "Mod".

"Si Roy Lichtenstein est l'une des figures les plus célèbres du pop art américain, son oeuvre, qui n'a été que rarement exposée en France, reste largement à découvrir. L'efficacité visuelle de ses agrandissements de bandes dessinées, réalisés au début des années 1960, a en effet occulté le reste de son travail et l'évolution de son positionnement artistique au sein d'un monde de l'art en pleine mutation. Aussi, le Centre Pompidou propose-t-il, à travers cette rétrospective majeure, de poser un nouveau regard sur cet artiste érudit et surprenant, et de découvrir qu'il fut en réalité l'un des premiers postmodernes. De ses premiers travaux inspirés par la culture populaire des années 1960 à ceux dialoguant avec les grands maîtres de la peinture moderne ou avec l'art classique, ce parcours de plus de cent-vingt oeuvres révèle un véritable expérimentateur de matériaux et de techniques (estampe, sculpture, émail, céramique), un inventeur d'icônes, mais aussi de codes picturaux brouillant les pistes entre figuration et abstraction, entre picturalité et objet tridimensionnel. Reflet de cette exposition, cet ouvrage, richement illustré, invite le lecteur à dépasser les idées reçues sur son travail, mais aussi sur le pop art."--P. [4] of cover.

This volume is the first to explore fashion as a critical aspect of modernity, one that paralleled and many times converged with the development of Impressionism, starting in the 1860s and continuing through the next two decades, when fashion attracted the foremost writers and artists of the day. Although they have depicted fashionable subjects throughout history, for many artists and writers, including Charles Baudelaire, Stephane Mallarme, Emile Zola, Gustave Caillebotte, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir, fashion became integral to the search for new literary and visual expression. In a series of essays that examine fashion and its social, cultural, and artistic context during some of the most important years of the Impressionist era - years that also gave birth to the modern fashion industry - a group of fifteen scholars, drawn from five interdisciplinary fields, examine approximately 140 Impressionist-era artworks, including those by dedicated fashion portraitists, in light of the rise of the department store, new working methods for designing clothing, and new social and technological changes that led to the democratization of fashion and, simultaneously, its ascendance as a vehicle for modernity.

The most iconic works of Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) are widely known, reproduced, copied, and even parodied. However, the true diversity and complexity of his oeuvre is little understood, and the full scope of his career is largely absent from the existing literature. Presenting over 130 paintings and sculptures, as well as over thirty seldom- or never-before-seen drawings and collages, this book examines all periods in Lichtenstein's career, going well beyond his brushstrokes and the classic Pop romance and war cartoon paintings that made him famous."Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective "features exciting new scholarship by an international team of distinguished curators, critics, and art historians. Essays by Yve-Alain Bois, Chrissie Iles, and Stephen Little, among others, give special consideration to Lichtenstein's historical influences, from Picasso and Cubism through Surrealism, Futurism, and British Pop. Contributions by James Rondeau and Sheena Wagstaff evaluate the artist's abstract work and late nudes. Complemented by photographs of the artist and his seminal exhibitions, the essays examine the various styles and subjects featured in paintings created throughout his lifetime. The inclusion of a complete chronology of Lichtenstein's life and work--compiled by Clare Bell of the Lichtenstein Foundation--makes this retrospective the most authoritative publication on the artist since his death in 1997.

  • Chronology / Barbara Goretti, Brian Kelly.
Exploring Wesselmann's steadfast focus on the fundamentals of art making, this generously illustrated volume casts him as an heir to both Ingres and Matisse, and a forerunner to contemporary artists such as Eric Fischl, Richard Phillips, and Mickalene Thomas. While famous for his Great American Nude series and still lifes of the early 1960s, Wesselmann consistently reinvented himself as an artist. He explored a variety of techniques from plastic bas-relief still lifes to laser-cut landscapes and three-dimensional nudes. More so than that of any other of his contemporaries, Wesselmann's art lies at the intersection of the great classical culture that shapes art history and the universal commercialization that defines our world today. From his early collages to his later drawings in steel, Wesselmann's forceful compositions turn implements of civilization, as well as its inhabitants, into objects of consumer and sexual desire. His images exude cool objectification and rich sensuality, and exemplify the shift in cultural paradigms, between the old world and the new that began in the 1960s. Wesselmann also wrote country music, including the classic song "I Love Doing Texas with You, " which appears on the soundtrack to Brokeback Mountain. Including scholarly essays and numerous illustrations, this monograph reveals the astonishing visual impact and superb aesthetic quality of Wesselmann's work.

19. Diana Vreeland [2011]

Book
xi, 308 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 27 cm.
Diana Vreeland has been called the fashion editor of the twentieth century. An epic self-mythologizer, she had an incredible aura of glamour, a great eye, and a genius for life. Diana Vreeland reveals the growth of her professional prowess and gives an account of her personal history, at the same time as it brings to life Mrs. Vreeland's pizzazz, humour, and flamboyant personality. A dynamic cast of characters accompanies Diana Vreeland's story. There are more than 300 illustrations, photographs, and drawings, many by the best fashion photographers of her time such as Louise Dahl Wolfe, Irving Penn, Cecil Beaton, and Brassai. Through her work Diana knew Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy and Oscar de la Renta. In the seventies a new wave of young talent came into her life - Andy Warhol, Fred Hughes, Mick and Bianca Jagger. She was friendly with Truman Capote, taught Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis how to dress for her role as First Lady, and was interviewed for her autobiography by George Plimpton. The fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar from 1937 to 1962, Diana Vreeland first shook things up with her Why Don't You column. Later, as the editor in chief of Vogue from 1962 to 1971, Diana Vreeland became famous for her startling style - sheathing women in jungle print underwear, wrapping their heads with leopard scarves. She operated out of her red lacquered office with a leopard-print rug, smoked continually, and lunched on peanut butter and jelly and a shot of scotch. At the height of her power, she was fired from Vogue, and replaced by an editor who had worked under her. In 1972, Diana returned to center stage for the final act of her life at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute as its Special Consultant, a job she invented. She masterminded costume extravaganzas and contributed to the new age of blockbuster exhibitions in which museum attendance soared and people poured into the galleries as never before.

David Bailey was part of a new generation who revolutionized fashion photography in the 1960s and made stars of models such as Jean Shrimpton. He was also among the first photographers to become a celebrity in his own right, socializing with and photographing many of the cultural icons of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Catherine Deneuve, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Michael Caine and Andy Warhol.

His simple and direct style is accompanied by an intimacy that reveals the personality and sensuality of his subjects. Over the course of his successful career, Bailey has produced books, paintings, commercials, documentaries and feature films and remains a high profile figure in photography and filmmaking. This book delves into the photographer's archive and provides an engaging overview of his career, including early and previously unpublished work alongside his iconic portraits from London and New York in the 1960s.
