Description

The heart of Givenchy beats with the pulse of the times, while maintaining a rare balance between commercial propositions and spectacular presentations. Pair with the Louis Vuitton Catwalk Book and Dior Catwalk Book to have a complete Catwalk Book collection. As noted in the book Moore says, “I am a camera,” which is surely an apt description of this artist. He is currently the runway photographer for the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times. After Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, Vivienne Westwood and Versace, Chloé is the eighth in a series of high-end, cloth-bound books that offer an unrivalled overview of the collections of the world’s top fashion houses through original catwalk photography.

Moore’s images are focused on what is out in front, while Fairer’s are seen from backstage or as his titles suggest . Founded by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé in 1961, shortly after the young couturier left his post at the helm of Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent would soon become one of the most successful and influential haute couture houses in Paris. Fashion historian Alexandre Samson and fashion critic Anders Christian Madsen are the authors behind the book’s rich texts. The former chronicles Givenchy’s collections up until the handover to Galliano, and the latter parses out the visions of the house’s contemporary creative directors. In all its purity, I think Hubert created one of the most complex legacies in fashion, because it reaches far beyond dressmaking,’ he explains.The book by New Mags has an inspiring content with interesting texts and big pictures perfect for the fashionista.

After Chanel, Dior is the second volume in a series of high-end, cloth-bound books that offer a complete and unrivalled overview of the collections of the world’s top fashion houses through original catwalk photography. The book reveals how Hubert de Givenchy pushed fashion forward in the second half of the 20th century. Each collection is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences and highlights, and illustrated with a gallery of carefully curated catwalk images. The kimono is the ultimate symbol of Japan, revered within the country as the embodiment of national culture and regarded internationally as an exotic fascination. Chris Moore is unquestionably a living legend of fashion, and yet not many fashion folk could pick him out of a crowd or even recognize his name.It is also an opportunity to examine the reactions they provoked at the time, and how these are echoed in our own. Despite Moore’s admission that he is better with a camera than with words, Alexander Fury has been able to take Moore’s images and thoughts and translate his visual fashion savvy into informative and intelligent text.

Moore’s Catwalking is of monumental size and weight, a perfect match for the near half-century archive of a man who has been labeled the first ever catwalk photographer. Written by Lou Stoppard and contributor Suzy Menkes in collaboration with Chloé, the book features catwalk photography from the Maison's creation in 1950’s to the present. Since its early days, the house of Givenchy has often managed to find a place for its designs not only in the history of fashion but in history overall.Introducing Le Smoking, the first tuxedo suit for women, in 1966, Saint Laurent also presented iconic art-inspired creations, from Mondrian dresses to precious Van Gogh embroidery and the famous Ballets Russes collection. Meanwhile, for Madsen, the house’s towering legacy as it stands today comes down to great style and the elusive properties of taste. Marking Chloé's 70th anniversary in 2022, Chloé Catwalk offers a comprehensive overview of the Maison's collections for the first time.

Prior to this, from 2013 to 2016 Fury was fashion editor of the Independent, i and the Independent on Sunday newspapers.In 1961, Blake Edwards’s film Breakfast at Tiffany’s showcased the couturier’s talent for designing black dresses, whether short or long, which were memorably worn by the film’s protagonist Holly Golightly, played by Audrey Hepburn. Jam packed and beautifully illustrated throughout, such a visual feast and i’m really happy with my purchase. Covering each of the decades images are accompanied with essays by award-winning fashion critic Alexander Fury, based on extensive interviews with Moore, exploring Moore’s career along with key catwalk moments. A dazzling and authoritative look at three decades of Prada’s groundbreaking fashion designs through stunning runway photography Founded in 1913 as a leather-goods house in Milan, Prada entered the field of fashion when Miuccia Prada took the helm of the company in 1979.
