The prince of prints: Pucci's vision and legacy
  Emilio Pucci (1914-1992) had a passion for women, a visionary sense of style, and an eye for color and design. With these talents he created a fashion house unlike any other. By the early ’50s his boutique on the isle of Capri was catering to wealthy sophisticates, heiresses and movie stars buying his "Capri pants", silk scarves and lightweight separates. By the end of the decade, Jacqueline Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe were wearing his dresses, and by the mid-60s the label was synonymous with the gilded lifestyle of an international jetset. Today, the house remains as vibrant as ever – Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley, and Kylie Minogue are adherents.

The Pucci story is a modern epic with its roots in renaissance Italy: the brand’s founder, the Marchese Emilio Pucci di Barsento, was a charismatic aristocrat whose lineage extends back to the 14th century. It is a story of evolution: how a family company grew from one tiny store to an international brand with 50 boutiques worldwide (and a presence in 300 more). And finally, it is a tale of innovation: Pucci was one of the first brands to bear a logo, and a pioneer of diversification into interiors, athletic wear and accessories. It introduced free-moving, lightweight fabrics, pop art prints, and a new color palette into womenswear, and constantly pushed fabric and printing technologies.

Featuring hundreds of photographs, drawings, and candid shots from the archive of the Emilio Pucci Foundation, this tome captures the breathtaking elegance and drama of a unique brand. Vanessa Friedman’s text places Emilio’s achievements in the context of fashion history, and provides insight into the remarkable Pucci dynasty.   Available in four different cover designs, each depicting an original pattern from the Pucci collection.

First published as a limited edition - now available in a standard TASCHEN edition!   Text in English, French, and German

Book Description TASCHEN, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: NEUF. Emilio Pucci (1914-1992) avait une passion pour les femmes, une intuition visionnaire du style et l'oeil de l'esthète pour la couleur et la forme. Doté de ces talents, il créa une maison de mode d'un genre particulier. Au début des années 1950, des intellectuels nantis, des héritières et des stars de cinéma envahissaient dans sa boutique de Capri pour s'offrir ses "pantacourts capri", foulards de soie et autres atours vaporeux. À la fin des années 1950, Jacqueline Kennedy et Marilyn Monroe portaient ses créations et, vers le milieu des années 1960, son label était synonyme du style de vie luxueux de la jet set internationale. Aujourd'hui, la maison est plus vivante que jamais et compte parmi ses adeptes Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley et Kylie Minogue.L'histoire de Pucci est une épopée moderne qui puise ses racines dans la Renaissance italienne: le créateur de la marque, Marchese Emilio Pucci di Barsento, était un aristocrate charismatique hors du commun, dont la généalogie remonte au XIVe siècle. C'est l'histoire d'une évolution, où comment une entreprise familiale installée dans une minuscule boutique se transforma en marque internationale établie dans 50 boutiques du monde entier (et présente dans 300 autres magasins). C'est aussi une leçon d'innovation, car Pucci a été une des premières marques à arborer son propre logo et à diversifier ses activités dans l'habitat, les vêtements de sport et les accessoires. Des tissus légers, aériens, des motifs puisés dans le pop art et une nouvelle palette de couleurs apparurent dans la mode féminine, tandis que les techniques de tissage et d'impression étaient constamment perfectionnées.Illustré de centaines de photos, dessins et clichés issus des archives de la fondation Emilio Pucci, ce livre expose la prodigieuse élégance de cette marque fascinante. De sa plume alerte, Vanessa Friedman replace les travaux d'Emilio Pucci dans l'histoire de la mode et nous fait découvrir une remarquable dynastie.Décliné en quatre couvertures différentes, chacune ornée de l'un des imprimés originaux de la collection Pucci. - Nombre de page(s) : 420 - Poids : 3120g - Genre : Universitaire, ouvrages de références, Essais, Livres en langue étrangère.

Book Description »Der Prinz der Prints« Emilio Pucci (1914-1992) besaß eine Leidenschaft für Frauen, ein visionäres Stilempfinden und den Blick des Ästheten für Farbe und Design. Mit diesen Talenten ausgestattet, schuf er ein Modehaus der besonderen Art. In den frühen 1950er-Jahren fanden sich betuchte Feingeister, Erbinnen und Leinwandstars in seiner Boutique auf Capri ein, um dort seine »Capri-Hosen«, Seidenschals und luftigen Kombinationen zu erstehen. Ende der 1950er trugen Jacqueline Kennedy und Marilyn Monroe seine Kreationen und Mitte der 1960er-Jahre war das Label synonym mit dem aufwändigen Lifestyle des internationalen Jetset. Bis heute kann die Marke zahlreiche Stars zu ihren treuen Kundinnen zählen - etwa Victoria Beckham, Elizabeth Hurley und Kylie Minogue - und hat gerade seinen 60. Geburtstag gefeiert. Mit Hunderten von Fotos, Zeichnungen und Schnappschüssen aus dem Familienalbum illustriert, präsentiert der XL-Bildband die atemberaubende Eleganz und Dramatik dieser einzigartigen Marke. In ihrem lebendigen Text stellt Vanessa Friedman die Leistungen Emilio Puccis in den Kontext der Modegeschichte und bietet Einblick in die bemerkenswerte Pucci-Dynastie. (Text engl., dt. frz.). 30 x 30 cm, 420 Seiten, zahlr. Farbabb., geb., unlimitierte Sonderausgabe. Bookseller Inventory # 603368
