Fashion at Home CALLWEY



 

Die Designer gewähren private Einblicke in ihre Häuser und ihr Leben, sie haben für dieses Buch aber auch ihre Kleiderschränke geöffnet und verraten exklusiv ihre ganz persönlichen kleinen und großen Stilgeheimnisse. So schwärmt Mafalda von Hessen in ihrem Anwesen in Rom davon, was sie in Sachen Fashion von ihrem Mentor Giorgio Armani gelernt hat, Otto Drögsler und Jörg Ehrlich vom internationalen Label Odeeh präsentieren ihr Wasserschloss in der Nähe von Würzburg und Frauke Gembalies, die ehemalige Designerin von Rena Lange, gibt Einblick in ihre Welt zwischen Mode und Kunst. So ist ein sehr außergewöhnliches Buch entstanden, das durchs Schlüsselloch blickt und dabei überrascht, staunen lässt und zum Nachahmen inspiriert,

Architecture

Edited by William Hall, with an essay by Leonard Koren

Concrete by PHAIDON



 

Concrete takes a fresh look at the world’s most versatile and abundant building material. Collating fascinating and beautiful concrete buildings by some of the most celebrated architects of the last century, it features familiar projects from Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright alongside work from some of the leading lights of contemporary architecture including Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, and many lesser-known newcomers. Arranged to promote comparison and discussion, the selected projects take the reader on a global tour of inspiring and intriguing structures: a German skatepark sits beside an Italian rooftop test track, a Japanese crematorium alongside a Portuguese swimming pool and a Brazilian government building next to a Chinese opera house. An essay by Leonard Koren, author of the best-selling Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, offers an evocative and perceptive view of concrete through the author’s experience of studying architecture in California and living in Tokyo.

WE ARE DANDY by Gestalten



 

From America to Africa to Asia, dandyism is a way of life. It is fashion in the best sense, self-esteem through style. And, in every country, it takes a unique form as dandies draw on the local context and fashion culture to shape their looks. We are Dandy throws open the doors of the wardrobe and explores the dandy as a global phenomenon. With texts as witty as the subjects are stylish, the book pokes between the folds to let us know these exceptional individuals. For them, their dandy fashion is more than a trend or a phase—it is who they are, the outer expression of their inner selves. Photographs and profiles paired with clever histories reveal what it takes to look your best around the world. We are Dandy unfolds with a foreword by the illustrious Dita Von Teese that conveys the authenticity of these aesthetes, their passions, and their bravely curated philosophies.
