Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Piaggi has long been an innovative fashion editor; here 105 of her double-page "D.P." spreads from Italian Vogue are arranged in artistic, not chronological, order (most are from the 1990s). The result is a colorful pastiche of images from European designers. The famous names are hereALagerfeld for Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Ozbek, Versace, LacroixAwith the most bizarre of their creations featured in collages describing trends and historical references. The original Italian text is retained, with fold-outs offering brief captions in English. In Vogue, a "D.P." serves to punctuate and enliven the rest of the issue; when over 200 pages of them appear together, the result can be visual indigestion. Persistent perusal will reward readers with an interesting essay on "couture-music" and some behind-the-scenes statements by the designers, both given in English at the end of the book. While this collection may inspire graphic designers, the average reader will probably gain the impression that "fashion is weird." Most libraries can pass on this one.ATherese Duzinkiewicz Baker, Western Kentucky Univ. Libs., Bowling Green

Very interesting use of collage to convey fashion and beauty. Great for inspiring fashion layouts for magazines and students.

Piaggi, herself, may not appear attractive or in any way sensible but this is her great appeal. Her contribution to fashion over the decades is the fantasy and immagination that make her and the creative collages within this book one of a ture muse. Take a tiny part and convert clothes into having your own style and true fashion!
