About this Item

Bologna 2009. 1 Volume/1. -- NEW -- Hardback -- Folio size ( 32,5 x 24,5 cm )( 220 gr ). ------- 280 pages with 240 colors illustrations . ************* The absolute dedication required by embroidery’s sophisticated, precious handiwork has rendered it increasingly rare: as a craft, it calls for mental discipline even more than physical, and for infinite patience, virtues so far from contemporary, so eccentric in a society that wants everything delivered at once, that of course embroidery has come into the spotlight again. Embroidery: Italian Fashion follows the technique’s recent rise in a national culture known for its opulence and emotion, and brings readers the experience of both with a soft, embroidered cover. Inside, the details of micro-paillettes, mirrors, bugle beads, ribbons and implausibly thin threads produce virtuosities, coups de théâtre, surprising elegances. Embroidery is a door on a wondrous, opulent dimension where light plays with the richness of threads, and Embroidery shows its meaning transformed by the violence of modern lines and gestures, like the burnt Swarovski crystals that are Riccardo Tisci’s hallmark. When Antonio Marras presented a skirt at his first Milan show in which the embroidery seemed to allude to beginner’s work, to the gauze on which little girls once learned to sew, he asked his embroiderers to imitate this style, calling it "wrongstitch." And those extraordinary craftswomen, accustomed to perfection, learned just what feeling, what fascination can be concealed in an apparent mistake. The embroiderers and their colleagues remain the silent but ever-present heroines of this revival, their handiwork recalling the human touch at every glance. Includes work from Anna Molinari, Blumarine, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Gianfranco Ferré, Marni, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Versace. ************************** Bologna 2009. 1 Volume/1. -- Nuovo – Rilegatura cartonato in tela uscita in-folio°( 32,5 x 24,5 cm )( 220 gr ). ------- Pagine 280 , illustrazioni: 240 . ********* "" Attorno alla metà degli anni '90, dopo - e contro - la rigorosa, asettica parentesi minimalista, la moda italiana ha riscoperto il décor, il gusto per l'abbellimento e per il prezioso. Tanto i grandi maestri della moda, quanto i giovani designer sono tornati a servirsi, sempre più spesso, del ricamo come motivo fondamentale di ispirazione. Il nuovo ricamo attraversa così tutte le linee di tendenza di questi ultimi dieci anni di moda, dall'etno folk al concettuale, dall'eclettismo al decostruttivismo, dal romanticismo al dark. Embroidery vuole illustrare, attraverso un ricchissimo apparato fotografico e i contributi dei più significativi artisti della moda italiana - proprio ciò che sta all'origine, storica e creativa, del nuovo ricamo, ovvero la tradizione e la grande artigianalità che sono all'origine dei ricami delle loro collezioni. Il ricamo è la porta su una dimensione meravigliosa, opulenta, dove la luce gioca con la ricchezza dei fili. La moderna violenza del gesto tramuta la sostanza della materia, come gli swarovski bruciati che sono un segno di Riccardo Tisci. Il virtuosismo antico del lavoro a tombolo si carica di emozioni ‘come se uscisse direttamente’ dice Antonio Berardi ‘dal diario della mia vita e della mia memoria’. Prezioso e sofisticato, il ricamo è un’arte senza tempo che i tempi rendono sempre più rara: per la dedizione che richiede, assoluta, mentale prima ancora che fisica, concentrata sul minuscolo e sul perfetto, e per l’infinita pazienza che esige, virtù così poco contemporanea, così eccentrica in una società che vuole tutto e subito (Giusy Ferrè). nel libro: Alessandro De Benedetti, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Amen, Anna Molinari, Antonio Berardi, Antonio Marras, Bluemarine, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Etro, Gianfranco Ferrè, Haute, Kenzo, Marni, Maurizio Pecoraro, Riccardo Tisci, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino, Versace. ********************.

About this title

Synopsis:

The absolute dedication required by embroidery's sophisticated, precious handiwork has rendered it increasingly rare: as a craft, it calls for mental discipline even more than physical, and for infinite patience, virtues so far from contemporary, so eccentric in a society that wants everything delivered at once, that of course embroidery has come into the spotlight again. Embroidery: Italian Fashion follows the technique's recent rise in a national culture known for its opulence and emotion, and brings readers the experience of both with a soft, embroidered cover. Inside, the details of micro-paillettes, mirrors, bugle beads, ribbons and implausibly thin threads produce virtuosities, coups de theÇtre, surprising elegances. Embroidery is a door on a wondrous, opulent dimension where light plays with the richness of threads, and Embroidery shows its meaning transformed by the violence of modern lines and gestures, like the burnt Swarovski crystals that are Riccardo Tisci's hallmark. When Antonio Marras presented a skirt at his first Milan show in which the embroidery seemed to allude to beginner's work, to the gauze on which little girls once learned to sew, he asked his embroiderers to imitate this style, calling it "wrongstitch." And those extraordinary craftswomen, accustomed to perfection, learned just what feeling, what fascination can be concealed in an apparent mistake. The embroiderers and their colleagues remain the silent but ever-present heroines of this revival, their handiwork recalling the human touch at every glance. Includes work from Anna Molinari, Blumarine, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Gianfranco Ferre, Marni, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Versace.
