“The influence of Surrealism on fashion and its ancillary arts lasted decades longer than the movement itself. This catalog, accompanying a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, explores the extravagances of visual language as social and political comment, a revolution in perception.”–The Library Journal.
“The love affair between fashion and Surrealism began in the Paris of the 1920s when Surrealist artists plundered fashion’s imagery for their art, raising fashion beyond the level of mere style to an important expression of culture. This text reveals the extravagent and ingenious creations resulting from this collaboration. It ranges from the shocking Surrealist dresses of Schiaparelli and Dali, and photographic experiments with Surrealist techniques by Horst P. Horst, Cecil Beaton and George Hoyningen-Huene to the work of younger fashion designers, including Olivier Guillemin and Vivienne Westwood, who have all brought Surrealist imagery into clothing and accessories.”

First printing of this, the first book on the work of American illustrator Mel Odom.
After graduating from his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in Fashion Illustration from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1972, Odom spent time in London before moving to New York City in 1975. His illustration work found an early home in the gay magazine, Blueboy, and shortly thereafter in Playboy. The frank, unfettered sexuality of his art has a powerful appeal, and his work began appearing in a wide variety of magazines, such as Time, Omni, New York Times, CBS Records and Rolling Stone. But Mel’s favourite work was his regular contributions to Playboy. His illustrations earned him multiple awards from The Society of Illustrators and other graphics and illustration organizations.
Mel’s style spread internationally through book covers for major publishers, a line of Paper Moon cards and posters that ultimately triggered the publishing of this, his first book, First Eyes, in Japan in 1982. Two years later, a re-edited book of his work, Dreamer was published by Viking-Penguin, featuring a forward by Edmund White. Mel also worked on art projects, including limited edition lithographs for publisher Eleanor Ettinger and more tellingly, three-dimensional masks. These are featured within the pages of this book, alongside a large number of beautiful reproductions of his fantastic and erotically-charged, highly-stylised illustrated work.
Text in English and Japanese.
