“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.”
This bountiful, visually lavish volume, published to accompany a 1987 exhibition at Fashion Institute of Technology, features the garments, paintings, sculptures, illustrations, window displays, fashion advertisements, costume designs and photography of Man Ray, Cecil Beaton, Issey Miyake, Horst P. Horst, Cinzia Ruggeri, Vivienne Westwood, Thierry Mugler, Krizia, Giorgio De Chirico, Meret Oppenheim, Max Ernst, Donatella, Rene Magritte, Comme des Garcons, Enrico Donati, Elsa Schiaparelli, Salvador Dali, Marcel Rochas, Jaques Griffe, Adelle Lutz, Marina Killery, Dominique Lacoustille, Emme, Stephen Jones, Louise Bourbon, Bill Cunningham, Germaine Vittu, Eric Braagaard, Karl Lagerfeld, Candy Pratts Price, Serge Lutens, Antonio, Linda Fargo, Claude Montana, Georgina Godley, Olivier Guillemin, Yves Tanguy, Christian Lacroix, Valentine Hugo, Paul Colin, Francoise Lesage, Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Cocteau, Adam Kurtzman, Herbert Bayer, Mel Odom, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alfa Castaldi, Leo Malet, Jorge Silvetti, Gabriella Giandelli, Givenchy, Marcel Jean, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Michael Roberts, Marcel Vertés, Bert Stern, John Galliano, Danuta Riyder, Paul Delvaux, Manolo Blahnik, Dorothea Tanning, Eileen Agar, Miguel Covarubias, Cristobal Balenciaga, Andre Masson, Leonor Fini, Roman Cieslewicz, Shoji Ueda, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Bruce Weber, Robert Mapplethorpe, A.

Under the candid caption “arts and fashion in Switzerland and the world”, Novembre activates intergenerational discussions, producing international content that explores the critical stakes inherent to the Swiss identity: its neutrality notably fortifies its supposed integrity and inviolability, whilst placing the Confederation in an extremely productive and influential position within the arts on a global level.
Through the organic association of fashion, design and art, Novembre highlights the products which proliferate in schools, studios, galleries, showrooms, institutions, trade shows, fairs, hotels and bank lobbies and living rooms – addressing issues of integration, independence, equality, and exchange.
Novembre is currently published and independently by Florence Tétier (Paris), Florian Joye (Lausanne), and Jeanne-Salomé Rochat (Berlin), who united after their graduation from ECAL University of Arts, Switzerland.
