Art and Fashion - Collaborations and Connections Between Icons

$170.00(NZD)  inc GST

A volume of magnificent proportions, Art + Fashion is as exciting and elegant as the creative partnerships it celebrates. Spanning numerous eras, men and women's fashion, and a wide range of art mediums, these 25 collaborative projects reveal the astonishing work that results when luminaries from the art world (such as Pollock, Haring, and Hirst) come together with icons of the fashion world (including Saint Laurent, Westwood, McQueen). From 20th-century legends such as Elsa Schiaperelli and her famous lobster dress painted by Salvador Dali to 21st-century trailblazers such as Cindy Sherman and her self-portraits in vintage Chanel, these electric and provocative pairings--represented in lavish visuals and thoughtful essays reflecting on the history of each project--brim with the energy and possibility of powerful forces uniting.

"Over the past decade, collaborations between fashion designers and artists have become increasingly ubiquitous - from Takashi Murakami's work with Louis Vuitton to Damien Hirst's partnership with Alexander McQueen and Jeff Koons's with Stella McCartney. 'Art + Fashion' examines the historically contentious relationship between the two fields through the lens of 25 collaborations, including Elsa Schiaparelli and Salvador Dali's iconic lobster dress, Cecil Beaton's 1951 Vogue editorial (featuring models in ball gowns posing in front of Jackson Pollock paintings) and Vivienne Westwood's Keith Haring-covered textiles." -"
