Gothic
Dark Glamour
Valerie Steele and Jennifer Park

2008 192pp. 100 colour illus. Hb ISBN 978-0-300-13694-4 £19.99*

From its origins in the eighteenth-century literature of terror to its contemporary manifestations in vampire fiction, cinema and art, the gothic has embraced the powers of horror and the erotic macabre. ‘Gothic’ is an epithet with a strange history—evoking images of death, destruction and decay. Ironically, its negative connotations have made the gothic an ideal symbol of rebellion for a wide range of cultural outsiders. Popularly associated with black-clad teenagers and rock musicians, gothic fashion encompasses not only subcultural styles (from oldschool goth to cyber-goth and beyond) but also high fashion by such designers as Alexander McQueen, John Galliano of Christian Dior, Rick Owens, Olivier Theyskens and Yohji Yamamoto. As the text and lavish illustrations in this book suggest, gothic fashion has deep cultural roots that give it an enduring potency.

Superheroes
Fashion and Fantasy
Andrew Bolton
With an essay by Michael Chabon

2008 160pp. 300 colour illus. Hb ISBN 978-0-300-13670-8 £30.00*

From Wonder Woman’s satin stars and golden bracelets to Batman’s brooding cape and mask, the style of superheroes’ dress has influenced both street wear and high fashion. This richly illustrated book explores how radical couture, avant-garde sportswear and state-of-the-art military garments—as seen through the lens of the superhero—can be metaphors for sex, power and politics. Beginning with the origins of the superhero costume, this volume looks at how designers have been influenced by iconographic components such as the cape, mask, boots and unitard. Costumes, such as those worn by Batman and Catwoman, are examined as reflections of sexual and physical prowess, while others, most notably those of Superman and Captain America, are analysed as political propaganda.

Madame Grès
Sphinx of Fashion
Patricia Mears

2008 184pp. 90 colour illus. Hb ISBN 978-0-300-13692-0 £35.00*

While the classically inspired ‘Grecian’ gown designed by Madame Alix Grès is widely recognised and admired, little else of the brilliant couturier’s life or work has received close attention. This book, by far the most detailed study yet published on this influential fashion designer, carefully analyses Madame Grès’ innovative construction techniques and connects her designs to the art styles and movements that inspired and informed her aesthetic. “Mears brings to her subject a genuine appreciation for the engineering that formed the basis of Grès’s innovation and for her tenacious, obsessive pursuit of custom techniques that were inherently uncommercial, severely curtailing the expansion of her business empire.” —Holly Brubach, New York Times, Style Magazine

Poiret
Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton
With an introduction by Nancy J. Troy Contributions by Caroline Evans, Heather Hess, Jared Goss and Caroline Milbank

2007 224pp. 195 colour illus. Hb ISBN 978-0-300-12029-5 £29.99*

In the annals of fashion history, French couturier Paul Poiret is known for liberating women from corsets and introducing pantaloons for women. However, it is Poiret’s innovations in the cut and construction of clothing, made all the more remarkable by the fact that he could not sew, that secures his legacy. This essential book is the first to explore Poiret’s radical modernity from a number of perspectives. Essays by renowned scholars describe the historical context of his work; its relation to the dominant artistic discourses of the early twentieth century; his muse, Denise Poiret, and her influence on his work; and his role in the paradigmatic shift to a new ideal of feminine beauty. “destined to become a collectors item”—Richard Edmonds, Birmingham Post

Artistic Luxury
Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique
Edited by Stephen Harrison
Essays by Emmanuel Ducamp and Jeannine Falino

January 2009 288pp. approx. 300 colour illus. Hb ISBN 978-0-300-14224-2 £40.00*

Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique—these great designers came together only once to display their goods in what was probably the most opulent exhibition ever mounted. At the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, the three strove to position themselves ahead of their many competitors in the luxury market, each presenting his jewellery and home adornments as high art. Their success is explored in this splendidly illustrated catalogue, which elucidates the prewar pinnacle of European culture. The array of displayed objects was mesmerising: Tiffany glass, Easter eggs to dazzle the Czars, realistic insects created in precious materials as sinister decorations. Many of these bore influences of the advanced art of the time, such as Art Nouveau, Viennese modernism and symbolism and of styles from around the world.
