Now travelers-both real and armchair-can experience the lifestyles of the princes and princesses of old.
Описание: Elegant Japanese products, architecture, and interiors that build upon tradition while defining the future of design. After the visual excesses of the first decade of the new millennium, there now appears to be a distinct demand for clear and rational, yet forwardthinking, design. Seamlessly melding aesthetics, functionality, and quality while simultaneously avoiding excess has been a foundation of Japanese handicraft for hundreds of years. Creatives from Japan are masters at skillfully combining rational functionality with a contemporary sense of design in a way that seems effortless and even playful. Sublime is a comprehensive collection of the relevant trends in Japanese design that reveals the country's overall design aesthetic. The book presents architecture, interiors, and products that are created with an approach that is both rational and visionary. The results of this striking combination often appear futuristic and somehow transcendent. Japanese architecture is adept at bringing inner and outer areas of buildings together harmoniously. Even the smallest rooms can seem surprisingly spacious. Sublime explores the impact of the interplay between old-style handicraft and modern technology as well as traditional and high-tech materials on Japanese design. It features work by established names such as Naoto Fukasawa, Tokujin Yoshioka, Kengo Kuma, and Nendo, and introduces talent from a new generation that has found its own design style somewhere between a traditional Japanese approach and modern or post-modern influences. As the book clearly shows, a Japanese design philosophy based on local traditions has not only survived a general trend toward Westernization, but it is also being translated into outstanding examples of contemporary visual culture around the world.

Описание: This beautifully illustrated book shows examples of Russian dress and accessories from the 15th to the early 20th century. Derived from the collection of the State Historical Museum and covering both dress worn in the countryside and in the city, this book is a fabulous feast of splendid patterns and fine detail. From exuberantly colourful and embellished dresses to elegantly sumptuous brocades and silks, the garments and accessories included in this book are an inspiration. In the first part of the book we look at traditional Russian dress, which was worn by all Russian peasants, by the urban petit bourgeoisie and by merchants. This type of clothing became accepted as national dress. In the towns and cities, dress was influenced by the Parisian styles but interpreted by Russian seamstresses reflecting the love of bright colours, multi-coloured patterns and decorative features in evidence in traditional dress. With authoritative essays written by experts L. Yefimova and T. Aleshina, Russian Elegance is an invaluable resource for fashion designers, artists, fashion historians, set and costume designers, or anyone interested in these beautiful designs.
