This review is from: Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations (Metropolitan Museum of Art) (Hardcover)
Another beautiful publication from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I've to admit I'm no Prada fan but I was attracted to this book on the prospect of having a chance to view some of Schiaparelli's beautiful creations.

This attractive book exceeded my expectations, it is beautifully bound and loaded with artistic fashion photography.
The photos present a mixture of clear archival images depicting Schiaparelli's elegant garments juxtaposed with colorful images from modern Prada collections. Each photo has captions revealing their respective dates.

The text in the book is concise, there is a brief introduction at the beginning of the book, then there are several booklets scattered between the images and they reproduce several comments by both ladies explaining their sources of inspiration, techniques, and their approach to creative design. The booklets may also contain some small photos, close-ups, or sketches. The layout of those pamphlets is nice as they don't affect the beauty of the illustrations and they are printed on high-quality paper.
This is a fine addition to any fashion and photography collection as it is both insightful and visually attractive.

I received this book a couple of days ago. So I haven't had that much time to look through it. But I like it! Lots of nice pictures and I like the structure of the book.
