Vogue: Like a PaintingVogue: Like a Painting

Published by Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Text by Lucy Davies. Preface by Yolanda Sacristán.

Vogue: Like a Painting is a lavish celebration of the intersection between the worlds of fashion photography and European art historical tradition. Compiling 67 carefully selected images from the Vogue archive, the volume explores fashion photographs of the last eight decades that take their inspiration from classical painting--those images that have become only marginally related to selling clothes (or perhaps all the better at it for their painterly invocations). Sometimes explicitly--we see direct homages to Vermeer and Hopper, for example--and sometimes more subtly, these images culled from Vogue's pages reference Spanish painting from the Golden Age, Dutch portraiture, Victorian and Pre-Raphaelite paintings and various schools contained in European royal collections. Traces of Constable, Zurbarán and Sorolla can be found within this volume, which brings together names from classic photography and those from more recent generations: Irving Penn, Erwin Blumenfeld, Horst P. Horst, Annie Leibovitz, Tim Walker, Paolo Roversi, Steven Klein, David Sims, Erwin Olaf, Mario Testino, Michael Thompson and Peter Lindbegh, to name a few. While some of these photographs are about direct mimicry, others are similar to painting only in technical approach--and some simply share the goal of revering women rather than sexualizing or objectifying them. With a gorgeous tipped-on cover and text by Lucy Davies, editor at The Telegraph, Vogue: Like a Painting is a volume produced as beautifully as its photographic contents.

Terence Donovan FashionTerence Donovan Fashion

Published by Art / Books.
Edited by Diana Donovan, David Hillman. Preface by Grace Coddington. Text by Robin Muir.

Terence Donovan was one of the foremost photographers of his generation--among the greatest Britain has ever produced. He came to prominence in London as part of a postwar renaissance in art, fashion, graphic design and photography, and--alongside David Bailey and Brian Duffy (photographers of a similar working-class background)--he captured and helped create the Swinging London of the 1960s. Donovan socialized with celebrities and royalty, and found himself elevated to stardom in his own right, and yet, despite his success and status, there has never been a serious evaluation of Donovan’s fashion work: he allowed no monographs to be published during his lifetime. Terence Donovan Fashion is therefore the first publication of his fashion photographs. Arranged chronologically, and with an illuminating text by Robin Muir (ex-picture editor of Vogue), the book considers Donovan in the social and cultural context of his time, showing how his constant experimentation not only set him apart, but also influenced generations to come. Designed by former art director of Nova magazine and Pentagram partner David Hillman, and with images selected by Hillman, the artist’s widow Diana Donovan and Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue, this volume is indisputably a landmark publication in the history of fashion photography.
Terence Donovan (1936–1996) is regarded as one of the foremost photographers of his generation. From the beginning of the 1960s until his death more than 30 years later, he shot regularly for magazines such as Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. He also directed some 3,000 commercials, the 1973 movie Yellow Dog and numerous music videos, for Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” and “Simply Irresistible” among others.

Arnold Scaasi: American CouturierArnold Scaasi: American Couturier

Published by MFA Publications, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Text by Pamela A. Parmal.

Barbra Streisand, Natalie Wood, Arlene Francis, Diahann Carroll, Joan Rivers, Mamie Eisenhower, Barbara Bush, Louise Nevelson... What these women have in common is that all were dressed by Scaasi. From his meteoric rise on Seventh Avenue in the late 1950s through his heyday in the boom decade of the 1980s, Arnold Scaasi has remained one of the most distinctive and successful designers in American fashion. With his signature combination of elegance, flamboyance, surprising colors and fabrics, and finely honed craftsmanship, Scaasi is both a bold American original and a couturier in the grand European tradition. Arnold Scaasi: American Couturier presents the best of Scaasi's fashions in a handsomely packaged, fluidly organized volume. Alongside sumptuous portraits of more than three dozen outfits, the book features numerous period photographs; sketches, notes and clippings from Scaasi's personal archives, most of them never before published; and interviews with Scaasi's famous clients, such as Joan Rivers, Mary Tyler Moore and Diahann Carroll, conducted specifically for this volume. A feast for fashion watchers and design aficionados alike, American Couturier contains all the glamour and thrill that for decades have been synonymous with the Scaasi label.

Arnold Scaasi (born 1931) apprenticed at the House of Paquin in Paris, before moving to New York to work with Charles James. In 1956 he began a ready-to-wear line; in 1968, he caught the eye of a worldwide audience when Barbra Streisand wore his overblouse and pants ensemble to collect her Academy Award for Funny Girl, making Scaasi a household name overnight.

Hubert de GivenchyHubert de Givenchy

Published by Fundación Colección Thyssen-Bornemisza.
Text by Hubert de Givenchy, Philippe Venet, Eloy Martínez de la Pera, Igor Uría, Lourdes Fernández, Paula Luengo.

Published on the occasion of the first major retrospective of the work of the great French fashion designer, this volume celebrates a key twentieth-century creator and a living legend in the history of haute couture. The exhibition, devised by Hubert de Givenchy himself and curated by Eloy Martínez de la Pera, provides an exceptional survey of the couturier's creations over nearly half a century, from the opening of the Maison Givenchy in Paris in 1952 to his professional retirement in 1995. A hundred or so of his finest pieces selected from museums and private collections all over the world, many of them never previously shown, establish a dialogue in the Museum's galleries with a group of works belonging to the Thyssen-Bornemisza collections.
Hubert de Givenchy (born 1927) was born to an aristocratic family in Beauvais, France. After completing his studies at the École des Beaux-Arts, Givenchy worked for several fashion designers, including the avant-garde Elsa Schiaparelli. In 1952 he opened his own fashion house, his style markedly innovative compared to the conservatism of his contemporaries. He was, at age 25, the youngest couturier of the Parisian fashion scene. Thanks to his elegant, feminine designs, the Givenchy brand soon became synonymous with Parisian chic, and the designer is known for dressing celebrity icons such as Jacqueline Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly.

Published by Moderne Kunst Nürnberg.
Edited by Gerald A. Matt, F.C. Gundlach, Synne Genzmer. Interview by Gerald A. Matt. Text by Isabelle Azoulay, Synne Genzmer, Fréderick Monneyron.

In capturing and choreographing the ephemeral postures, gestures, facial expressions and clothes that compose our conceptions of beauty, fashion photography documents the evolution of culture itself and mirrors an era’s attitude toward life. Vanity Fair presents some 200 works of fashion photography from the F.C. Gundlach Collection, one of the most comprehensive private photography collections in the German-speaking world. Landmark photographs are set alongside unknown pictures, from the late 1920s through the Second World War up to the present day. Among the photographers included are Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, Cecil Beaton, Sibylle Bergemann, Erwin Blumenfeld, Guy Bourdin, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Ralph Gibson, F.C. Gundlach, Horst P. Horst, George Hoyningen-Huene, William Klein, Nick Knight, David LaChapelle, Edgar Leciejewski, Zoe Leonard, Leon Levinstein, Peter Lindbergh, Gjon Mili, Sarah Moon, Armin Morbach, Irving Penn, Melvin Sokolsky, Deborah Turbeville, Yva, Imre von Santho and Wols.
