“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.”

Fashion and Surrealism

“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 Ruggieri, 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 Cieslewitz, Shoji Ueda, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Bruce Weber, Robert Mapplethorpe, A.
