Illustration Now! Fashion, editado por Taschen

Todo vestido empieza con un dibujo, cada falda con un boceto. La ilustración es parte integral del diseño de moda, no solo como modo de expresión y punto de partida de cada creación, sino también como esbozo de patrones y estampados e incluso complemento de editoriales de revista. A menudo, los artistas ilustran las nuevas tendencias a partir de lo que ven en las pasarelas directamente. Ya iba siendo hora de que la serie Illustration Now! homenajease la ilustración de moda: en estas páginas encontraremos recientes creaciones de 90 artistas de todo el planeta, entre ellos Ruben Toledo, Aurore de La Morinerie, Bil Donovan, Tanya Ling y Jean-Philippe Delhomme. El libro recoge citas de grandes expertos del mundo de la moda: Valentino alaba el trabajo de Gladys Perint Palmer; diversas voces de los talleres de Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton y H&M suman sus elogios al talento reflejado en este volumen.

Shoes: A brief History

Changing styles in footwear have always captured the imagination and communicated the priorities and ambitions of the wearer—during the reign of Henry VIII, exaggerated shapes and wide toes were footwear’s reflection of the aggressive social climate of the court, while engravings of Queen Victoria show impossibly narrow slippers, worn in pursuit of 19th-century ideals of daintiness. This colorful book provides an engaging overview of the history of footwear.

Shoes Plasure and Pain / Libro

Beautiful, sculptural objects, shoes are powerful indicators of gender, status, identity, taste, and even sexual preference. Our choice in shoes can be aspirational, even fantastical—and can project an image not just of who we are, but of who we want to be. Feet are made for walking, but shoes may not be. Featuring extensive new photography, this is a beautiful and authoritative guide to the history and culture of footwear. Iconic creations by celebrated designers sit alongside masterpieces by unknown craftsmen. Embracing both men’s and women’s footwear, from the Chinese lotus shoe to laser-printed contemporary shoes-as-sculpture, Shoes: Pleasure & Pain engages with the cultural significance of shoes—the source of their allure, how they are made, and the people who buy and wear them. Contributors from a wide range of disciplines consider subjects as diverse as ballet slippers and fetishism, shoes and ceramics, traditional shoemaking, and the obsessive shoe collector. The book also includes a comprehensive discussion of the history of shoe design, and case studies including Marie Antoinette’s shoe collection and the footwear of the Maharajas.
