Product Description

From the Back Cover

Minimalism and Fashion is the first book to examine the minimalist movement in fashion while addressing its confluence with and divergence from similar currents in art, architecture, and design. Organized by decade, the text explores the evolving relationships and influences between fine art and the art of sartorial minimalism, and is accompanied by more than 150 breathtaking images.

This sumptuous volume considers the work of the world’s most important designers and artists in fascinating juxtaposition. It contains creations by noteworthy designers, including Madeleine Vionnet, André Courrèges, Halston, Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Miuccia Prada, Yohji Yamamoto, Helmut Lang, and many others. There are major works by such key minimalist artists as Frank Stella, Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Rachel Whiteread, Peter Halley, and Jeff Koons. The volume’s photography includes editorial shots by the greatest image makers of this century and the previous, including Richard Avedon, Hiro, Francesco Scavullo, Guy Bourdin, David Bailey, William Klein, Corinne Day, and Juergen Teller. The dialogue among fine art, photography, and fashion is explored in a brilliantly woven text that clarifies how each form has influenced the other. With its extraordinary art and insight, this book is a must for lovers of fashion as well as fine art and photography books.

Brought this book, a bit pricey but it was very good and useful towards my research on a fashion collection based around Nostalgic Dark. I wanted to mix to styles to get this theme right so I used Minimalism and Beatnik fashion from 50s/60s. This book has more writting than photos but the photos are fantastic!

Excited about the book and can't wait to get into it. I only wish my book didn't arrive with a ripped cover. Really disappointing for the price, you think Amazon would package it correctly.
