Alexi Lubomirski: Decade

09 June 2014

Alexi Lubomirski Decade Book

Over the last ten years, Alexi Lubomirski has become an established name within the fashion industry, shooting for such publications as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and GQ. Decade is a collection of Lubomirski’s fashion and portrait work from 2003-2013. Containing studio photography and narrative fashion spreads in exotic locations, this book also features portraits of actors and celebrities such as Cate Blanchett, Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum, Kirsten Dunst, Charlize Theron, Kate Winslet, Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor against a broad array of backdrops. Throughout Decade, Lubomirski uses similarities in narrative, form and subject matter to tell a visual story and create a dialogue between contrasting images. In this way, Lubomirski’s photographs feel more like film stills, capturing his subjects in moments of “visual transit”–walking down a street, emerging from a pool–that allude to a world beyond the frame of the image. In these cinematic photographs, Lubomirski creates a space in which “the viewer is left free to invent their own narrative from what they perceive from the image.” Available to Order Now from Amazon.com.

The First Pop Age by Hal Foster

07 June 2014

The First Pop Age Painting and Subjectivity in the Art of Hamilton, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Richter, and Ruscha by Hal Foster

Who branded painting in the Pop age more brazenly than Richard Hamilton, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and Ed Ruscha? And who probed the Pop revolution in image and identity more intensely than they? In The First Pop Age, leading critic and historian Hal Foster presents an exciting new interpretation of Pop art through the work of these Pop Five.

Beautifully illustrated in color throughout, the book reveals how these seminal artists hold on to old forms of art while drawing on new subjects of media; how they strike an ambiguous attitude toward both high art and mass culture; and how they suggest that a heightened confusion between images and people is definitive of Pop culture at large.

As The First Pop Age looks back to the early years of Pop art, it also raises important questions about the present: What has changed in the look of screened and scanned images today? Is our media environment qualitatively different from that described by Warhol and company? Have we moved beyond the Pop age, or do we live in its aftermath?

A masterful account of one of the most important periods of twentieth-century art, this is a book that also sheds new light on our complex relationship to images today. Available to Order Now from Amazon.com.

Inside a Pearl: My Years in Paris by Edmund White

31 May 2014

Inside a Pearl My Years in Paris Edmund White

When Edmund White moved to Paris in 1983, leaving New York City in the midst of the AIDS crisis, he was forty-three years old, couldn’t speak French, and only knew two people in the entire city. But in middle age, he discovered the new anxieties and pleasures of mastering a new culture. When he left fifteen years later to take a teaching position in the U.S., he was fluent enough to broadcast on French radio and TV, and in his work as a journalist, he’d made the acquaintance of everyone from Yves Saint Laurent to Catherine Deneuve to Michel Foucault. He’d also developed a close friendship with an older woman, Marie-Claude, through which he’d come to understand French life and culture in a deeper way.

The book’s title evokes the Parisian landscape in the eternal mists and the half-light, the serenity of the city compared to the New York White had known (and vividly recalled in City Boy). White fell headily in love with the city and its culture: both intoxicated and intellectually stimulated. He became the definitive biographer of Jean Genet; he wrote lives of Marcel Proust and Arthur Rimbaud; and he became a recipient of the French Order of Arts and Letters. Inside a Pearl recalls those fertile years for White. It’s a memoir which gossips and ruminates, and offers a brilliant examination of a city and a culture eternally imbued with an aura of enchantment. Available to Order Now from Amazon.com.

10 Corso Como A – Z by Carla Sozzani

27 May 2014

10 Corso Como A – Z by Carla Sozzani

Carla Sozzani opened Galleria Carla Sozzani in September 1990 as a space for art, photography, and design housed in a converted garage at 10 Corso Como in Milan. Along with American artist Kris Ruhs, Sozzani created a space like no other. Rejecting ordinary retail norms, this concept store has always promoted a different philosophy—that of slow shopping, a succession of spaces and events that prioritize lifestyle over object acquisition. In this book, Sozzani describes her world: her style, personal taste, and opinions on fashion, travel, design, and lifestyle. The Galleria now incorporates a bookshop, a fashion and design store, and a garden café, and it is one of Milan’s hippest and most exquisitely curated spaces—a destination in itself. 10 Corso Como has become the nexus of a global network of cultural exchange through fashion, food, art, and photography that continues to inspire fashion and design. In recent years, two additional locations have been added: 10 Corso Como–Comme des Garçons in Tokyo in 2002 and a Seoul branch in 2008. Available to Order Now from Amazon.com.

Lanvin Logo Animated: Jeanne’s Own Love

21 May 2014

In 1889, Jeanne Lanvin arrived at her new address on the corner of Rue Boissy d’Anglas and Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, a mythical address which was to become that of her fashion house. In 1897, her only daughter Marguerite Marie Blanche was born and became her main source of inspiration, a miniature muse. “It was to amaze her that she amazed the world with her skill,” wrote Louise de Vilmorin of the unique connection between Jeanne and Marguerite. A mother’s unconditional love was to galvanize her creativity. Read more about the history of Lanvin’s logo after the break.
