Описание: In his latest paper doll tribute to high fashion of past decades, artist Tom Tierney spotlights the bold colors, miniskirts, and offbeat accessories that typified haute couture of the 1960s. Included are stunning creations by a new wave of young designers who exalted youth and promoted the "little girl look" while catering, for the first time in fashion history, to the tastes of working-class consumers. Extensively researched and painstakingly rendered, this dramatic full-color collection includes two dolls, each with 15 additional costumes, among them such innovative items as a spectacular Saint-Laurent see-through dress (strategically embellished with bands of beads); Courreges' innovative pantsuit of navy jersey; an evening dress of gilded plastic rectangles joined by metal links, created by Paco Rabanne; Mary Quant's wool minidress, with an industrial zipper down the font; a Bill Blass above-the-knee-length wedding dress of white silk crepe trimmed with snow-rose scallops, and Rudi Gernreich's ankle-length, free-swinging print dress. Additional outfits by such veterans of haute couture as Nina Ricci, Balmain, Givenchy, Patou, Chanel, and others complete this full-color fashion extravaganza. A fact-filled introduction provides historical background to the sixties fashion scene, and captions briefly describe each costume."
Описание: The 1930s they began somewhat unstylishly in the midst of a worldwide depression but ended as a dazzling and influential decade of haute couture. Influenced by the Bauhaus movement ("Form follow function") and the Art Deco trend, a coterie of brilliant designers set the tone for the times with an exciting new wave of provocative fashions. Here, in a handsome, painstakingly researched paper doll fashion book, noted artist and fashion authority Tom Tierney re-creates the exquisite inventions of the top couturiers: Schiaparelli, Lanvin, Vionnet, Molyneux, Chanel, Mainbocher, Worth, Paquin, and others. Rendered in glowing full color, the collection comprises two dolls and 32 meticulously detailed costumes, accurate down to the last nuance of fabric and fold. Suddenly out is the "boyish look" of the Roaring Twenties. It is a more seductive line. In the 30s, skirts take on a clinging fluidity, hats get smaller, gloves of every length are a la mode, and the backless evening gown makes a dramatic entrance. By 1933, Paris turns to Hollywood for inspiration and film stars Gloria Swanson, Joan Crawford, and Garbo are the new international fashion setters. (Tierney's dolls bear striking resemblances to the first two actresses.) Fashion connoisseurs will delight in this parade of stunning costumes, featuring a navy wool frock with sable-bordered cape-scarf and muff by Worth; an elegant gold lame evening gown with gathered peplum flounce by Lanvin; a Chanel creation of white tulle with sunburst stitching; Schiaparelli's "Chinese" taffeta cape and satin dress; and dozens of other inspiring designs. An informative text describes fabrics and accessories and lists the date of the creation and the designer's name. This charming, inexpensive haute-couture collection will appeal to paper doll enthusiasts, costume fanciers, fashion historians, and anyone interested in the fascinating 30s."
Описание: Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald ... the "Lost Generation" ... illustrations by John Held, Jr. ... the "It" girl ... Lucky Lindy ... Louis Brooks ... prosperity, seemingly endless, and the inevitable crash. The twenties loom large in the American imagination as a decade unto itself, a brief span of years, but with a style all its own. In this paper doll collection, noted fashion illustrator Tom Tierney brings back the style that set the twenties apart, at least in terms of haute couture. Here are the fashions that gave the decade its distinctive chic and, in the process, revolutionized women's wear. Gone is the elaborate corsetry of the Edwardian age, waistlines are lower, hemlines are higher and costume jewelry is de rigueur. Thirty meticulously re-created costumes and two dolls (15 costumes per doll) present the voguish looks established by such haute couture legends as Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Madeleine Vionnet, Paul Poiret, Madame Paquin, Worth, Lelong, and 11 others. Paper doll collectors, costume fanciers, and fashion historians will appreciate this delightful collection of artfully rendered paper dolls and costumes.
