“Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italian style, design and decoration have maintained an unprecedented predominance in the Western World. It was in the early 1950s that a great surge of decorative talent welled up in Italy, and this resulted in the ‘Italian look’ in clothes and in homes – a new standard of chic inventiveness.

The Italian view of interior design has been most enterprisingly expressed in the magazine Casa Vogue, which was founded in 1968 and has consistently been one of the most admired publications of Condé Nast International.

This book, garnered from the many issues of Casa Vogue, has been written and produced under the guidance of  Isa Vercellonim who has been its editor ever since its inception. The choice of picture-stories is intended to reflect the unusual and distinctive diversity of the magazine – ranging from traditional decoration to the more advance examples of minimal design, most the most significant  of contemporary buildings to the spectacular reconstructions and reconversions of old palazzi and coachhouses, from the ‘post modern’ to the ‘anti-modern’ and any other ‘moderns’ that may have been advocated recently. Italian trends naturally provide the main focus, but Casa Vogue also includes developments in the United States, France, Switzerland – indeed, wherever unusual and meaningful designs are being created.”

SNOOPY FASHION-frontSnoopyInFashionspread

Snoopy In Fashion

First English edition of SNOOPY IN FASHION, published in 1988!

In the early 1980s Art Director Connie Boucher contacted a long list of the world’s most progressive and famous fashion designers of the time, asking each of them to create an original one-of-a-kind designer outfit for Snoopy and his beagle sister Belle.  The response was tremendous, with the world-famous designers loving the idea of dressing these world-famous dogs. Boucher’s unique concept grew into a fabulous collection of specially designed haute couture modelled exclusively by Snoopy and Belle in an exhibition mounted by museums, galleries, and large department stores in Europe, Asia, Australia, and the United States.  The skill and genius of many of the world’s greatest designers breathed tremendous life, verve, and excitement into Connie’s concept, forming SNOOPY IN FASHION in 1984. 

For the book, first published in Japan in 1984, photographer Taishi Hirokawa has studio-documented each designer garment, modelled by Snoopy and Belle, one designer or fashion house per page. Designers include Givenchy, Issey Miyake, Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi, Pierre Balmain, Gianni Versace, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Thierry Mugler, Missoni, Krizia, L.L. Bean, Jen Paul Gaultier, Popy Moreni, Cinzia Ruggeri, Giorgio Armani, Cacharel, Fiorucci, Esprit, Levi Strauss, Gucci, and so many more!
