Iain R. Webb — Bill Gibb: Fashion and Fantasy, 2008 год

Bill Gibb: Fashion and Fantasy - Iain R. Webb

V & A Publishing / —
Crowned ‘Designer of the Year’ by Vogue in 1970, Bill Gibb (1943–1988), barely out of college two years and yet to launch his eponymous line, was to become a major name in fashion history. Gibb’s career was prolific, and truly visionary at its finest, but sadly short-lived. His legacy, continued relevance and importance as a designer is apparent today in the work of designers from Giles Deacon to John Galliano. Famous for his love of romance, soaring flights of fancy and devil-may-care dynamic, Gibb’s wildly eccentric combinations of checks, tartans, stripes, floral prints and Fair Isle Knits had never been seen before. T
his stunning book explores Gibb’s background, long-time fascination with historical imagery and the themes that inspired his designs. Award-winning fashion journalist Iain R Webb is a professor at Central Saint Martins; he writes for The Independent and New York Times magazine.

Pre-raphaelite Art - Suzanne Fagence Cooper

V & A Publishing / —
Whether painted furniture, book illustrations, textiles or tiles, the decorative arts were as important as the now famous oil paintings in developing the distinctive Pre-Raphaelite style and were also instrumental in bringing their work to a wide audience. The V&A collection is also rich in drawings and photographs, and all these combine to bring alive the working practices and sources of inspiration – from choice of models to literature, history and the natural world – which linked artists such as Edward Burne-Jones, William Homan Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rosetti and John Everett Millais. The result is a new and fresh approach to the work of the Pre-Raphaelites, and one that will reinforce their enduring popularity.
