Embroidery: Italian Fashion follows the technique's recent rise in a national culture known for its opulence and emotion, and brings readers the experience of both with a soft, embroidered cover

Start by marking Embroidery: Italian Fashion as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. Embroidery: Italian Fashion follows the technique's recent rise in a national culture known for its opulence and emotion, and brings readers the experience of both with a soft, embroidered cover. Inside, the details of micro-paillettes, mirrors, bugle beads, ribbons and implausibly thin threads produce virtuosities, coups de theCtre, surprising elegances.

1000s of new photos added daily. 67th Festival of Italian Song, Sanremo, Italy - 07 Feb 2017. Well, this is unexpected. There’s been an error.

The absolute dedication required by embroidery's sophisticated, precious handiwork has rendered it increasingly rare: as a craft, it calls for mental discipline even more than physical, and for infinite patience, virtues so far from contemporary, so eccentric in a society that wants everything delivered at once, that of course embroidery has come into the spotlight again. Embroidery: Italian Fashion follows the technique's recent rise in a national culture known for its opulence and emotion, and brings readers the experience of both with a soft, embroidered cover. Inside, the details of micro-paillettes, mirrors, bugle beads, ribbons and implausibly thin threads produce virtuosities, coups de theÇtre, surprising elegances. Embroidery is a door on a wondrous, opulent dimension where light plays with the richness of threads, and Embroidery shows its meaning transformed by the violence of modern lines and gestures, like the burnt Swarovski crystals that are Riccardo Tisci's hallmark. When Antonio Marras presented a skirt at his first Milan show in which the embroidery seemed to allude to beginner's work, to the gauze on which little girls once learned to sew, he asked his embroiderers to imitate this style, calling it "wrongstitch." And those extraordinary craftswomen, accustomed to perfection, learned just what feeling, what fascination can be concealed in an apparent mistake. The embroiderers and their colleagues remain the silent but ever-present heroines of this revival, their handiwork recalling the human touch at every glance. Includes work from Anna Molinari, Blumarine, Dolce & Gabbana, Emilio Pucci, Gianfranco Ferre, Marni, Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Versace.
This book was exactly what I was hoping for. The photos of the garments and close up details are excellent. Even though the book focuses specifically on Italian designers, there's more than enough inspiration to keep one going for years. Many fabulous Italian designers contributed commentary on why couture embroidery endures and continues to appeal (even through the excesses of the 1980s).

Minor complaints: the book design does not do credit to the content (the cover lettering is embroidered into the book cloth in fluorescent lime green! Yaagh!!!); the text is oversized, printed sideways on many pages, and runs into the spine of the book, all of which make the book awkward to read. The book is large and quite heavy, but pages stay open without having to be weighted, which is nice when your hands are busy beading!

If you are interested in couture embroidery and beading or Italian designers, this would be a fine addition to your library.
Great Book!
After receiving a strong recommendation from a knowledgeable friend, I managed to track down a fantastic copy of Federico Rocca's book down on Amazon's U.S. site..... I only wish it was freely available in the U.K!!!
I can wholeheartedly say that every single person I have shown this book to has totally drooled over its content!!!!! It is a fantastic visual of all the astounding embroidery work that is going on in Italian Fashion. It is already a most treasured possession!!!
I originally saw this book at one of the bookstores in the Louvre. It was all in French and was pricey (95 Euro - or about $135 U.S.dollars). The photographs are beautifully detailed on glossy pages. The close-up shots allow you to see the detail of the embroidery. If you are interested in the type of embroidery that is done in fine houses like the Ecole Lesage, then this is the book for you.
