Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Gianni Versace (1946-1997) stands among the most important designers of the late 20th century. His clothing combines "street" and high fashion, symbolizing post-pop culture and expanding the haute couture beyond the elitism of earlier eras. His collections of the 1980s and 1990s directly reflect the unabashed sexuality of the period with both style and intelligence. This book, which accompanies a commemorative exhibition at The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, from December 11, 1997 through March 22, 1998, celebrates Versace not only as a designer but also as a truly accomplished artist.Splendidly illustrated, the volume provides a conceptual and historical background for Versace's achievements. Among the subjects discussed are his major themes and monuments, the inspiration of artists such as Andy Warhol and Alexander Calder; Versace's reinterpretation of the past; his incorporation of both traditional and innovative materials; the use of symbols and words on his clothing; and the opulent, fantasy dress he created for the opera, theater, and dance. Individual commentaries are provided for the superb colorplates. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_new_0810965216
