Vogue on: Elsa Schiaparelli (Vogue on Designers)
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
'Vogue On Designers - a new, compact series of books, small enough to carry in your handbag but still hardbacked - is destined to take pride of place in many a carefully edited library. The series stands out for the unique access all the writers have had to the magazine's archive of photography and illustrations. The Condé Nast library has offered up an unprecedented quantity and quality of images, shot by everyone from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino and Tim Walker. Thanks to Vogue having first charted the careers of these designers, their lives and works within its pages, there was a vast amount of original material for the writers to draw on, making this a dream project. Each of the four designers' stories comes back to life - the images of their collections acting as prompts, reminding us just how dramatic their impact has been on the way we dress. From detailing how hard the designers worked to how they lived with their visionary brilliance, the books made a captivating assessment of their power and their legacy today. These aren't vast coffee-table books to gather dust, but new fashion friends to be read, perused and revisited for inspiration.' --VOGUE, October
'Oh, we do love an affordable snippet of style and the new Vogue On series offers just that!' --Image Magazine, September 2012

'Get your fashion fix with Vogue On series. From Christine Dior to Alexander McQueen, each book celebrates an influential designer and is illustrated with beautiful images from the fashion bible's archive. Both chic and show-offy, it's win/win.' --Glamour, September 2012
Shocking, witty and eccentric, the designs of Elsa Schiaparelli are among the most innovative and influential in the history of fashion. Black gloves with golden fingernails, buttons shaped like lips, trompe l'oeil images, brightly coloured zips and perfume bottles in the shape of a torso would not be out of place in fashion today, but they were created by Schiaparelli in the 1930s. A true original, she collaborated with artists such as Salvador Dali and Man Ray, pioneered the runway show and designed costumes for film-stars from Mae West to Marlene Dietrich. She used film and stage as a publicity vehicle for her label, and her advertising graphics were far ahead of their time. Through the photographs and illustrations of Vogue that championed Schiaparelli from the first picture of her revolutionary Bow-knot sweater in 1927 to the Surrealist Tears dress and Shoe hat of the late 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli presents the enduring legacy of this daring and visionary designer. Vogue, the international fashion bible, has charted the careers of designers through the decades. Its unique archive of photographs, taken by the leading photographers of the day from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino, and original illustrations, together with its stable of highly respected fashion writers, make Vogue the most authoritative and prestigious source of reference on fashion. With a circulation of over 160,000 and a readership of over 1,400,000, no brand is better positioned to present a library on the great fashion designers of the modern age.
