Surfers soulies skinheads & skaters : subcultural style from the forties to the nineties by Amy De La Haye( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As bold and vital as the styles that inspired it, Surfers, Soulies, Skinheads and Skaters goes back to the source, charting the circle of street style from the forties to the nineties, and featuring nearly 200 authentic outfits in striking photographs with amazing detail that includes shoes, jewelry and accessories. A fascinating dimension is added as the authors place examples of street fashion alongside the high fashion creations they have influenced, illustrating how these fashions "trickled up" to inspire top designers including Calvin Klein, Versace, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. Accompanying the photographs are detailed descriptions and quotes from the wearers, giving their own highly individual views of their particular outfits. This is a flamboyant, one-of-a-kind survey of subcultural style that no one interested in fashion or design will want to miss

Picasso's ladies : jewellery by Wendy Ramshaw by Wendy Ramshaw( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wendy Ramshaw who lives in London is one of the leading artist-jewellers of the late 20th century whose distinctive style is internationally admired and widely influential." "Picasso, one of the most prolific artists of the 20th century, and his painted records of his wives, mistresses and friends have been the focus of Ramshaw's study since the mid-Eighties. The sheer beauty of the women and the full range of emotions expressed in these paintings provided the impetus to design one or more jewels for each of the 66 portraits of 'Picasso's Ladies' illustrated in this book." "In this publication the collection is for the first time being presented in its entirety alongside Picasso's paintings, the source of stimulus. In an unusual approach the artist gives in her notes an insight into her working process. She reveals to us the personal messages of each painting which led to a number of amazing designs and how her choice of stones either reflect or go against the colours on the paintings. Four authors have illuminated various aspects of what are undoubtedly some of the most intellectually complex and aesthetically accomplished jewels."--BOOK JACKET
Fashioned from nature by Victoria and Albert Museum (Londra)( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fashion has always sought to celebrate nature - from sumptuous silks and floral patterns, to the spectacular creations of designers such as Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior, the two have long been entwined. Yet this reverence is sometimes combined with a damaging need for raw materials. From the seventeenth century to the present day, Fashioned from Nature examines our dependence on the natural world and the devastating effect of certain trends, as seen in the demand for ivory, fur, skins and exotic feathers. Today, intense consumerism and fast fashion have a different impact on the world around us, and this book discusses the need for a more responsible fashion cycle. But which has the greater environmental impact - a leather handbag or a white cotton t-shirt? Consider the effects of land clearance, insecticides and water consumption - not to mention washing after every wear - and the answer may not be completely clear. Fascinating and beautifully illustrated, this book will stimulate an important and timely debate

Inside the Renaissance house by Elizabeth Currie( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes us on a tour of the Italian Renaissance house, room by room, conveying just what it was like to live there. As an outward symbol of the family's status, wealth and erudition, much care and trouble went into its arrangement and furnishing, and the art of household management. The Renaissance house was one in which the secular gradually assumed as much importance as the sacred, as this book illustrates. It conveys through contemporary illustrations and a lively text the realities of living in Florence and Venice during the Renaissance."--Jacket

English medieval embroidery : opus anglicanum by Victoria and Albert Museum( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Medieval Europe, embroidered textiles were indispensable symbols of wealth and power. Owing to their quality, complexity, and magnificence, English embroideries enjoyed international demand and can be traced in Continental sources as opus anglicanum (English work). This sumptuously illustrated book draws on new research and detailed photography to offer an introduction to their design, production, and use. Essays by leading experts explore the embroideries' artistic and social context, while catalogue entries examine individual masterpieces. Medieval embroiderers lived in a tightly knit community in London, and many were women who can be identified by name today. Comparisons between their work and contemporary painting challenge modern assumptions about the hierarchy of artistic media. Contributors consider an outstanding range of surviving examples, highlighting their exquisite craftsmanship and exploring the world in which they were created."--Publisher's description
German sculpture, 1430-1540 : a catalogue of the collection in the Victoria and Albert Museum by Norbert Jopek( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Collection of late Gothic and early Renaissance German sculpture in the Victoria and Albert Museum is probably the most wide-ranging outside Germany. This comprehensive catalogue covers works ranging from 1430 to 1540 in a variety of materials (wood, stone, terracotta and bronze), and also discusses the issue of nineteenth-century fakes and historicist pieces." "The sculptures originate from many different German-speaking regions: from North Germany to the South Tyrol, and from the Lower Rhine to Thuringia and Saxony, as well as from Austria and Alsace. They range from small-scale, finely carved boxwood statuettes to ambitious polychromed altarpieces, from fine limestone figures and reliefs to rare bronzes, all reflecting in different ways the historical and cultural contexts of later medieval and early Renaissance art. Works of celebrated sculptors such as Hans Daucher, Michel and Gregor Erhart, Tilman Riemenschneider and Veit Stoss are fully illustrated and discussed in detail." "The introduction gives a short history of the formation of the V&A's celebrated collection of German sculpture, and provides a brief overview of the subject, while the catalogue itself includes many works never published before, and throws new light on the collection as a whole."--Book jacket
