Art & Fashion Collaborations & Connections Between Icons
Art & Fashion Collaborations & Connections Between Icons
A volume of magnificent proportions, Art + Fashion is as exciting and elegant as the creative partnerships it celebrates. Spanning numerous eras, men and women's fashion, and a wide range of art mediums, these 25 collaborative projects reveal the astonishing work that results when luminaries from the art world (such as Pollock, Haring, and Hirst) come together with icons of the fashion world (including Saint Laurent, Westwood, McQueen). From 20th-century legends such as Elsa Schiaperelli and her famous lobster dress painted by Salvador Dali to 21st-century trailblazers such as Cindy Sherman and her self-portraits in vintage Chanel, these electric and provocative pairings--represented in lavish visuals and thoughtful essays reflecting on the history of each project--brim with the energy and possibility of powerful forces uniting.

Be Bold Interiors for the Brave of Heart
Be Bold Interiors for the Brave of Heart
"Everything in Life Unstyled is achievable but still totally inspiring. It's a gorgeous book, the sort that belongs on your coffee table for flicking through again and again." Praise for Emily Henson's previous book from Abigail Ahern Fly the flag for maximalism - bring playful patterns, bold prints and vivid colours into your home with Emily Henson's new book Be Bold. Interiors trends for 2018 include strong, saturated colour and rich jewel tones.

In the first section, `Decorate like no-one's watching', chapters such as `More is More, `Pattern Riot', and `Paint it Bold', are brimming with inspiration plus easy ideas to recreate in your own home. In the second half, 'Trailblazers', discover homes with adventurous, spirited styling that will inspire you to decorate with confidence.

Bohemian Style at Home
Bohemian Style at Home
Bohemian style is characterized by free-flowing fabrics, bright colours and a multitude of clashing patterns. Heavily inspired by the 1960s and 1970s free-spirited way of life, it is one of the most versatile styles of decoration. Sometimes rule-breaking and always personal, it could be best described as a an effort to live in complete harmony with your surroundings. Forget about famous designers and carefully planned decorating schemes - boho is a style often built up over time and is the antithesis of trend-following.

This handbook shows how to create a tailor-made Bohemian home. Working through the house one room at a time, it highlights classic items of furniture and signature accessories, from chandeliers and kilims to plants and lanterns. In-depth case studies demonstrate the essential elements and provide inspiration, while colour combinations are explored to help personalize this iconic style for the home. Anyone who hankers after the Bohemian look and is eager to bring it to their own home will find this book a valuable resource.

Carried Away
Carried Away
The bag, and the handbag in particular, has achieved high fashion status, but what's the cultural and historical significance behind the bag? Why do we use them and not just have pockets? Why don't men routinely use them? Does every culture have a tradition of using bags?

The Auckland Museum exhibition Carried Away: Bags Unpacked is a collection of 150 bags from their Applied Arts and Design Collection, a nationally significant research archive of key makers and designers from New Zealand and abroad, and this book serves as both a photographic record and an exploration of the symbolism and power behind bags.

Grace Lai, curator of the collection, unpacks issues carried by the bag: of colonialism, the economy, consumption, gender politics, and whakapapa. Issues that remain relevant to not only museums and their collections but also to society today.

Celia Birtwell
Celia Birtwell
Celia Birtwell is one of Britain's best-known, best-loved designers. She is an iconic figure on the global arts scene. This lavish, multi-layered book - the first to be published on Celia - delves into her work and eventful life. The book conjures up all the personal warmth and visual intricacy of a family scrapbook: it features intimate photographs of Celia, her family and friends from her own albums and archive, her drawings, her charmingly idiosyncratic, fashion sketches and a multitude of examples of her fashion and home fabrics. Her bohemian lifestyle in the 60s and 70s, which saw her hanging out with such colourful personalities as Manolo Blahnik, the Beatles, Mick and Bianca Jagger and Paloma Picasso, is brought to life through stylish photographs from the time. Her ongoing relationship with Hockney both as friend and muse, is illustrated by his personal photographs, drawings and paintings of her, including the sketches that led to Mr & Mrs Clark and Percy, recently voted one of the nation's favourite paintings. Celia's renaissance in the Noughties has seen two sell-out collections of frocks for TopShop as well as a plethora of her prints on a wide variety of items.

Coco Great Lives in Graphic Form
Coco Great Lives in Graphic Form
The Biographic series presents an entirely new way of looking at the lives of the world's greatest thinkers and creatives. It takes the 50 defining facts, dates, thoughts, habits and achievements of each subject and uses infographics to convey all of them in vivid snapshots. Many people know that Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel (1883-1971) was a prolific French fashion designer and founder of the House of Chanel, who ruled over Parisian haute couture for almost six decades. What, perhaps, they don't know is that: she was taught to sew by nuns and started Chanel by making hats; that she lived in a suite at the Ritz Hotel, Paris, for 37 years; that, in 1935, she was recognized as the world's wealthiest woman; and that, prior to her fashion career, she worked as a singer, famously gaining the nickname 'Coco' from one of her songs. Biographic: Coco presents a visual catwalk through her life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the genius behind the garments.
