Whos the designer behind the designer? How does a fabric pattern influence the choices of the major fashion stylists? Through a brilliant essay by Bruce Boyer, The Fabric aims to answer these questions, offering in-depth insight into the world of Vitale Barberis Canonico. Excellence is achieved when good taste, good working techniques and experience bring out the qualities of the raw materials to the same high standards. This is the motto of Francesco Barberis Canonico, whose family traces its involvement in the textile business back to 1663. On the occasion of the companys 350th anniversary, Fredi Marcarini has realised the photographic portraits of ten classic patterns symbolizing the exemplary elegance cherished by Vitale Barberis Canonico, one of the largest producers of finest fabrics for tailor-made suits in Italy.

Book Description Skira, 2014. Condition: new. A cura di Boyer B. G. Milano, 2014; ril. in tela in cofanetto, pp. 68, cm 32x40. (Moda e Costume). Un libro - che è anche un oggetto da collezione - racconta il mondo Vitale Barberis Canonico dove classico e contemporaneo si incontrano, si influenzano e creano uno stile unico. Per celebrare i 350 anni della storica azienda del Made in Italy il volume non si perde nel banale racconto storico o nella descrizione del prodotto ma si addentra nei retroscena più nascosti di un lavoro antico ed evoca le peculiarità dei nuovi gentlemen. Attraverso un saggio del giornalista americano Bruce Boyer scopriremo il lavoro dei "designer behind the designer" ovvero di quelle persone che, disegnando i pattern dei tessuti, influenzano i grandi stilisti del nostro tempo. Il fotografo Fredi Marcarini svelerà, attraverso l'interpretazione di 10 pattern classici, le peculiarità umane del nuovo gentleman. Seller Inventory # 2728686
