Vogue 100

British Vogue is turning one hundred. The glossy magazine has always reflected styles-and well beyond the area of fashion. On the occasion of its centennial, this luxury volume provides a fascinating survey of a century of British cultural history with the help of spectacular images. The ranks of photographers who have lent this glamorous kaleidoscope its unique character since the first issue in September 1916 include David Bailey, Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller, Irving Penn, Lord Snowdon, and Mario Testino. The book focuses on faces that have become icons: artists such as Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Damien Hirst, and Henri Matisse; stars ranging from Rudolph Valentino and Marlene Dietrich to Gwyneth Paltrow and David Beckham; and prominent women such as Lady Diana Cooper or Lady Diana Spencer. The volume naturally also features the fashion designers who defined the century-Coco Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and Yves Saint Laurent among them-and reflects the ever-changing female silhouette.

Intersectionality of Gender and Race in Asian F...

This study is a qualitative content analysis that examines Asian female images in fashion advertisements seen in Vogue from 2008 to 2010. The study employs theories from feminism, gender sociology and media to investigate how and why Asian women have been constructed in a gendered and racialized manner in U.S. advertising. Five categories of Asian female images are generated in this study and findings show that the historically dominant lotus blossom and dragon lady images of Asian women have cast considerable influence on contemporary fashion advertising. Asian women are not only gendered that legitimizes male dominance and gender hegemony, but also racialized to reinterpret the historical Orientalism embedded in American colonialism that perpetuates the racial hierarchy. This study has significance in exploring media ethics in terms of media impact on victims and society. It also calls for Asian women s agency to break away from the stereotypes and bring about social change. Meanwhile, this study has implications for media literacy educators and media practitioners to sensitize themselves of the gender and racial relations in the United States.

Born in 1948 into a family of ministers in Kingston, Jamaica, the statuesque and strikingly beautiful Grace Jones lived with her family in Syracuse, NY, before launching a career as a model in New York City. Gaining fame as the cover girl for such publications as Vogue and Elle, Jones's flamboyant look proved to be a hit on the New York City nightclub circuit and she became a darling of the disco scene, which led to a recording contract and a substantial following among gay men. With her sexually charged, outrageous live shows, Grace soon earned the title of 'Queen of the Gay Discos.' When she moved to Paris in 1970, the French fashion scene embraced her unusual, androgynous looks and, in addition to cover work, she dominated the runways of designers like Yves St. Laurent and befriended the likes of Giorgio Armani and Karl Lagerfeld. While there, she shared an apartment with Jerry Hall and Jessica Lange and became artist Jean-Paul Goude's muse - he also fathered her son Paulo. (Grace was married twice - to a producer and a bodyguard - and she dated Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren for four years.) But with the dawn of the '80s came a massive anti-disco movement across the U.S., leading to Grace Jones focusing on more new wave and experimental-based work, putting her 2½ octave voice to good use. She is as known for her unique look as she is for her music and has influenced the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Annie Lennox. In the book, Grace takes us on a journey from her religious upbringing in Jamaica to her heyday in Paris and New York in the 70s and 80s, all the way to present-day London, where she is working on a new album.

Jeremiah
99,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While most can only imagine the lavish living quarters filled with fine china, dramatic drapery, and regal furniture that lie behind the iron-clad gates of the most exclusive addresses in America, Jeremiah Goodman has had the rare opportunity to enter and paint his impressions of the residences of the rich and famous for the past 54 years. Goodman's expressive watercolors not only act as an archive of interior design for the second half of the 20th century, but also provide a glimpse into the artist's unique ability to infuse a depiction of domestic space with a sense of drama and emotion second only to being there. In addition to making art based on the interiors, Goodman painted studies for rooms-to-be, creating the beautiful plans on which the rooms themselves would be based. Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision is a 208-page retrospective of Goodman's career, with over 80 plates of Goodman's work, photos and ephemera from his life, and reflections from Goodman himself. Over the span of his career, Goodman has made renderings of the homes of such influential icons as President Ronald and First Lady Nancy Reagan; legendary theatre personas Mary Martin, Sir John Gielgud, and Richard Rodgers; Baron and Baroness Philippe de Rothschild; jewelry designer Elsa Peretti; Greta Garbo; Cecil Beaton; Betsy Bloomingdale; the Duchess of Windsor; fashion designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Bill Blass; Vogue editor-in-chief and fashion icon Diana Vreeland; interior designers Billy Baldwin and Mario Buatta; and famed photographer Bruce Weber; in addition to illustrating rooms for House and Garden, The New York Times Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and Interior Design, a publication for which Goodman illustrated each month's cover for 15 years. With an introduction by playwright Edward Albee, Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision offers a rare look at a true life of grandeur.

Vogue on: Giorgio Armani
32,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Armani's style is elegance and sensual simplicity incarnate. 'Few names in fashion conjure so distinctive a look,' said British Vogue. For Armani, design has always been about an easy, timeless grace, not constantly changing trends; clothes meant to compliment the body, not merely cover it. With his careful removal of extraneous internal structure, emphasis on the human form and the use of soft textiles and a muted colour palette, Armani changed the face of fashion from haute couture to the high street. He revolutionised the way both men and women looked and dressed, taking away formality and fuss as surely as he ripped out linings and interlinings. It's difficult to overstate just how different the fashion landscape was before Giorgio Armani. With his principles of style, simplicity and practicality, Armani deconstructed the fashion world. From inauspicious beginnings as a department store window-dresser, he funded his first company by selling his car. 40 years on, he oversees a multi-billion dollar empire with over 250 stores in 33 countries worldwide.One of the first designers to truly utilise the appeal of Hollywood, his seminal wardrobe for Richard Gere in the 1980 film American Gigolo helped cement his as the look of the late 20th century. His frequent collaborations with luminaries such as Martin Scorsese, Leonardo Di Caprio, Cate Blanchett and Lady Gaga have all contributed to making the shy, reserved but dedicated Armani the first superstar designer of the modern age. Vogue on Giorgio Armani charts the rise of a small town boy to a fashion monolith.

Beth Levine Shoes

If you love shoes—and who doesn't?—you know that nothing says as much about a woman’s style as her taste in footwear. Long before Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin, Beth Levine was designing shoes that were objects of desire and even lust. Levine, who introduced mules, stilettos, and fashion boots to the American market, was a visionary. Born a farmgirl, she took her design inspiration from nature—and everything else: auto racing, patchwork quilts, even the 1969 moon landing. Fashion-forward and exquisitely constructed, Levine’s shoes were worn by stars like Marilyn Monroe and Barbra Streisand, favored by designers like Halston, Oscar de la Renta, and Geoffrey Beene, and collected by Azzedine Alaïa and Manolo Blahnik. This book’s full-color photos of Levine’s creations—from vinyl cowboy boots to sublime black silk pumps—display her shoes as touchstones of glamour and, ultimately, works of art.“Before MANOLO BLAHNIK, there was the cutting-edge shoe designer BETH LEVINE (1914-2006). Stockinged boots that extended into a wrapped bodysuit, slides lined in Astroturf, and driving pumps in the forms of cars—all were part of her rich vocabulary, being celebrated in BETH LEVINE SHOES, by HELENE VERIN.”-Andre Leon Talley, VOGUE April 2009 Widely hailed as the ‘First Lady of American Shoe Design’, Beth worked under her husband’s label to create some of the most innovative and popular shoes of the 60' and 70’s, including Nancy Sinatra’s boots that walked all over you in her hit single, “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’.”-Callie Watts, BUST.com I knew the name but not much about the woman, so when the book Beth Levine Shoes landed on my desk, I quickly flipped the pages, reading the quotes and staring at the shoes, so intricate, creative and whimsical… The book offers insight into arguably the most influential American shoe designer of the 20th century. The pictures alone are worth the $35 price.-Linda Miller, The OKLAHOMAN, 3/29/2009
