Descriptions du produit

Charles James, often considered to be America's first couturier, was renowned in the 1940s and 1950s as a master at sculpting fabric for the female form and creating fashions that defined mid-century glamour. Although James had no formal training as a dressmaker, he created strikingly original and complex designs, including intricate ball gowns worn by members of high society in New York and Europe. This lavishly illustrated book offers a comprehensive study of James' life and work, highlighting his virtuosity and inventiveness as well as his influence on subsequent fashion designers. Featuring exciting new photography of the spectacular evening dresses James produced between 1947 and 1955, this publication includes enlightening details of these intricate creations alongside vintage photographs and rarely seen archival items, such as patterns, muslins, dress forms, and sketches. A detailed and illustrated chronology of James' life describes his magnetic personality, his unorthodox design processes, his colorful supporters--such as Salvador Dali, Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, and Cristobal Balenciaga--and profiles of a number of his famous clients, such as Gypsy Rose Lee.With flair and style echoing that of its subject, Charles James brings to life one of the most fascinating and creative figures in American fashion.

Charles James: Beyond Amazing 13 mai 2014
Par David M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Bravo to the Met for recognizing pure art and putting together an amazing exhibition catalog. Charles James was probably the most talented designer and one who was never in the spotlight. He was not just making beautiful clothes; he was designing architecture, sculpture. By using elegant fabrics he was able to manipulate them into beautiful creations and almost never needed to cover them with pattern, beading, or embroidery. This beautifully designed book showcases the elegance of Charles James. The wrap around cover of a James photo shoot graces the cover and the printed clear dust jacket keeps it free of text. It starts by giving us the chronology of his life with snapshots of him and vintage photographs of his work. The bulk of the book is all new photography of his work. Some of the shots give us multiple angles, some show detailed close-ups of a garment. Hands down, this is the most beautiful fashion book of 2014.

Stunning! 10 mai 2014

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is an exquisite book. Lots of super close-up pictures of the outside and inside of some of the most beautifully constructed garments you will ever see.
It makes me weep to compare these masterpieces to the kind of crap most people wear these days, but that's another story!
If you love beauty and are interested in the construction and engineering of clothes this book should be in your library.

Blows The Genius of Charles James out of the water! 13 mai 2014
Par Mark Hughes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The most comprehensive book on the worlds most talented couturier ever. This book has it all over the previous book The Genius of Charles James from the Brooklyn exhibit in 1983. This tome is perhaps the best ever fashion book on a designer. This is up there with Betty Kirke's book on Vionnet and the various books on Gres and Balenciaga. I cannot stress how importajt a book this is and it ha s more than whetted my appetite for the show.

Incredible 14 mai 2014

This is a great book. I love that they show close-up pictures of the stitching and some of the 'inner workings' of the dresses. Incredible photos and layout!

Read it and enjoy, therefore I certainly didn’t regret its purchase 10 mai 2014
Par Denis Vukosav - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ is a biography of a man who is still considered as US couturier No. 1, whose specialty were creation of sculpting fabric.

Inside its covers fans of this extraordinary man can find his numerous photographs, his life story and all the fantastic evening dresses that Charles James made in period 40s and 50s.

The only thing that might bother a bit, book being both equally appealing with its photographs and interesting text, is the unusual choice for the font that makes text reading sometimes very challenging

Bough it as a present, read it and enjoy, therefore I certainly didn’t regret its purchase and could recommend it for all those interested in design…
