Michel Deverne a consacré son activité de plasticien à l'art dans l'architecture et dans la cité. Il est l'un des acteurs du mouvement de l'art cinétique. Utilisant notamment l'aluminium, le béton, il réalise de nombreuses sculptures en France et à l'étranger. Ses mosaïques-reliefs sont visibles dans beaucoup d'espaces publics.
Born in 1927, Deverne developed his activity as a visual artist in architecture and the city. Using aluminium and concrete in particular, he works for France and abroad. His creations can be admired in many public places, such as the mosaics decorating the façades of buildings in Colombes, the hospital complex in Lille, or the steel relief of the BNP building in Tokyo. Deverne's approach is in line with kinetic art, giving the illusion of movement by juxtaposing identical elements. In this way, he creates an optical illusion for the viewer who is watching while moving.

Yves Saint Laurent & Art
Mouna Mekour, Stephan Janson, Madison Cox

From the ancient world to pop art, Yves Saint Laurent regularly took inspiration from art history as he combined colours, carved out new forms and rethought the structure of garments in order to create his own masterpieces.
Juxtaposing his creations with art works from the collections of five major Paris institutions – the Musée d’Orsay, the Louvre, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris and the Musée National Picasso – this book explores the couturier’s homages to the masters of art and his never-ending quest for new means of aesthetic expression. Androgynous silhouettes and Proustian gowns stand alongside the elegance of Impressionism; a feathered coat responds to Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings; flowing silhouettes merge with a mural by Raoul Dufy; Lucio Fontana’s neon lights make metallic fabrics sparkle; and bold appliqué motifs echo The Dance by Henri Matisse. This is an unforgettable journey through art history with Yves Saint Laurent as a guide.

Elle in Italia
Il sogno della moda e il racconto della vita delle donne dal 1987
Maura Madeddu
SilvanaEditoriale, Cinisello Balsamo 2021, 152 pag., 110 iil., Brossura con alette,  17 x 24 cm, ISBN  9788836649433

Dal 1945 in Francia, dal 1987 in Italia, “Elle” è il giornale che meglio di qualunque altro è riuscito a unire all’aura patinata del fashion system le esigenze, le battaglie e le gioie della quotidianità. Fondata da Hélène Gordon-Lazareff nel clima di generale rinascita che ha caratterizzato il dopoguerra, si propone come rivista non femminista, ma attenta a sostenere le donne, ricercata senza snobismi, all’insegna di tre parole chiave: stile, impegno, leggerezza. Questo libro racconta l’edizione italiana, ripercorrendone dalle origini l’evoluzione: da mensile a settimanale, dal primo numero all’edizione digitale, rievocando i temi, i progetti e i grandi reportage, con interviste di approfondimento ad alcuni protagonisti del mondo della moda e del costume.
Interviste: Daniela Giussani, Danda Santini, Donatella Versace, Gilles Bensimon, Benedetta Dell’Orto, Adriana Di Lello, Maria Elena Viola, Carolina Castiglioni.

Collana a cura di Franco Bassi, grafica di Luca Pratella
“Divina India”, Libro di stampe popolari indiane a soggetto sacro curata dalla Prof.ssa Marilia Albanese, direttore dell’Istituto Italiano per l’Africa e l’Oriente. Sotto la vivacità cromatica e l’ingenuità dei segni, queste stampe nascondono capacità di comunicazione impensabili. Si trovano un po’ dovunque in tutta l’India e, nonostante le diversità locali, gli indù le sanno capire nei loro reconditi significati. Ogni personaggio divino, dalle sembianze immaginifiche, con i suoi simboli misteriosi e i suoi mitici attendenti, esprime la sua “rivelazione”, contribuendo così alla costruzione dell’immenso mosaico sacro che copre il composito continente indiano. Le stampe di questo itinerario rappresentano l’iconografia più emblematica per accostarsi al pantheon indù. In un mondo etnicamente, linguisticamente e storicamente composito come quello del sub-continente indiano, l’immagine sacra, e tutto ciò che essa evidenzia, rappresenta un veicolo di comunicazione ottimale.

Issey Miyake was one of the first designers View on Colour ever interviewed, back in October 1993 for our third issue. Five years later, on the occasion of his 60th birthday and his personal show at the Fondation Cartier in Paris, we are proud to feature him again with our thirteenth issue. Thirteen is a special number for Mr.Miyake, as the characters for “Issey” mean “one life” and those for Miyake mean “three houses2 - thus “I” and “Mi” together make 13, a very lucky number indeed.
A poem of paper and cardboard
Our homage to Issey’s 35 years of creation feauturing paper dresses that outline a few of his major contributions to designs

Issey  Miyake Photographs by Irving Penn
Edited by Nicholas Callaway, foreword by Isamu Noguchi, and an essay by Jay Cocks
Little, Brown and Company, Boston 1988, 96 pages, 46 col.ill., Hardcover, 26x31cm., ISBN  9780821217207

Irving Penn Regards the Work of Issey Miyake displays the wordless harmony of the artistic relationship between Irving Penn, one of the great photographers of the twentieth century, and the designer Issey Miyake, one of the few figures to have taken clothing design into the realm of art. For more than a decade and across different continents, the work of one has provided a mirror for the work of the other. Miyake offers Penn the forms and textures that have been the substance of much of his long career. Penn’s photographs allow Miyake to look again at his designs as if they were completely new. This is an invaluable representation of the intuitive partnership between two artists that Miyake describes as a “silent understanding.”

Martin Margiela à Lafayette Anticipations
Chris Dercon, Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, Friedrich Meschede, François Quintin and Balthasar Laury
Walther König , Köln 2021, 345 pages,  23.5 x 31.12 cm, ISBN  978-3753301013
euro 65,00
email if you want to buy :[email protected]
Published for his first solo show as an artist at Lafayette Anticipations in Paris, this book presents, for the first time, more than 40 artworks by Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela (born 1957). Reproducing images of installations, sculptures, collages, paintings and films, the book also advances the thesis that Martin Margiela has always been an artist. Internationally renowned in the fashion world since the late 1980s, throughout his career as a designer Margiela has deliberately upended the conventions of fashion through his materials and his runway shows.
The works at the Lafayette Anticipations exhibition, most of which were made in the Foundation’s studio, return to the artist’s obsessions. The body is very much in evidence here, from anatomies inspired by the academic tradition to hair and skin in almost abstract form. The catalog was designed by Irma Boom in close collaboration with Margiela as a “making of” the show, presenting both final and in-progress pictures of the works.
Curator of the exhibition: Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel.

All-American Volume Twelve  A Book of Lessons
Editors Bruce Weber, Nan Bush, Nathaniel Kilger, Matthew Richards, Skylar Pittman
teNeues, Augsburg 2012, 192 pages, Housed in slipcase, 26 x 32 cm, ISBN  9783832796679
euro 38,00
email if you want to buy [email protected]
All-American Volume Twelve: A Book of Lessons presents an eclectic lineup of American talents whose potent personalities and creative works exemplify freedom, conviction and inspiration. The “lessons” of the book are discovered through their individual journeys, actor and activist Danny Trejo narrates his unlikely path to fame, Polly Mellen speaks to the importance of curiosity throughout her illustrious career as a fashion editor, and musician/producer Nile Rodgers sheds light on his hit-making alchemy. The evolving art scene in Detroit is considered from two perspectives; first through an examination of student works and the craft tradition at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, then through conversations with prominent arts organizations in the downtown area. The book also features tributes to the late Grove Press publisher Barney Rosset, the Chicago-based oral historian Studs Terkel and the socialite turned Taos activist Mabel Dodge Luhan.
In addition to extensive original photography and interviews by Bruce Weber, “All-American Volume Twelve: A Book of Lessons” includes commissioned work by Poppy de Villeneuve and Carlos Charlie Perez, previously unpublished photographs by John Derek, and poetry by Frank O’Hara and Danielle Faith Green, a young Brooklyn-born writer.
This is the first year that “All-American” is published in conjunction with teNeues Publishing Group, bringing Bruce Weber’s book to a much broader international audience.
This book is dedicated to the memory of Anna Piaggi

Sallandrouze de Lamornaix 1801 - 1878
Histoire d’une manufacture d’exception
Jean-François Luneau
Préface Valérie Simonet
SilvanaEditoriale, Cinisello Balsamo 2021, 656 pages,  Relié,  24 x 30 cm,  Français, ISBN  9788836648740

Le nom de Sallandrouze de Lamornaix a donné le nom a une des plus grandes entreprises française du Premier Empire ; lors de la première exposition nationale des produits de l’industrie à Paris en 1802, l’entreprise se nommait alors Rogier et Sallandrouze, née de l’association entre Jean Sallandrouze de Lamornaix et le maire d’Aubusson Guillaume Rogier. Puis l'ouverture d'une manufacture de tapis velours dans le quartier du Marais, à Paris, et la succession de son fils, Charles Sallandrouze de Lamornaix, propulsent l'entreprise vers des réussites incroyables. Le succès perdure avec la reprise par le fils de Charles, Octave, mais subit de plein fouet les effets de la défaite contre la Prusse et l'entreprise est contrainte de fermer ses portes en 1872, pour mieux renaître quelques années plus tard sous le nom de la Manufacture de Saint Jean. Au-delà des oeuvres produites, c'est tout un pan de l'Histoire de France – politique, industrielle et artistique – que cet ouvrage nous invite à (re)découvrir.

Mod New York
Fashion Takes a Trip
Edited by Phyllis Magidson and Donald Albrecht, Foreword by Whitney W.Donhauser
Museum of the City of New York / Monacelli Press, New York 2017, 160 pages, 22,6 x 30,2 cm, ISBN  978-1580934985
euro 50,00

Mod New York traces the fashion arc of the 1960s and 1970s, a tumultuous and innovative era that continues to inspire how we dress today. During this period, demure silhouettes and pastels favored by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy exploded into bold prints and tie-dyed psychedelic chaos and ultimately resolved into a personal style dubbed by Vogue the “New Nonchalance.” Accompanying a major exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York, this book is beautifully illustrated by two hundred groundbreaking and historically significant designs by Halston, Geoffrey Beene, Rudi Gernreich, Yves Saint Laurent, André Courrèges, Norman Norell, and Bill Blass, among many others, all drawn from the renowned costume collection at MCNY. By the mid-1960s, clothing assumed communicative powers, reflecting the momentous societal changes of the day: the emergence of a counterculture, the women’s liberation movement, the rise of African-American consciousness, and the radicalism arising from the protests of the Vietnam War. New York City, as the nation’s fashion and creative capital, became the critical flashpoint for these debates. Authoritative essays by well-known fashion historians Phyllis Magidson, Hazel Clark, Sarah Gordon, and Caroline Rennolds Milbank explore the ways in which these radical movements were expressed in fashion.

George Byrne   Post Truth
Ed. Stephanie Emerson, graphic design by Michael Worthington, text(s) by George Byrne, Ian Volner
Hatje Cantz,Berlin 2022. 144 pp., 68 ills.,Hardcover, 24.70 x 29.80 cm, English, ISBN 978-3-7757-5253-4

Abstract Architecture in Pastel
Turning what architect Rem Koolhaas famously referred to as “junkspace”—the spatial flotsam of the Anthropocene—into candy-coloured dreamscapes, George Byrne depicts the gritty urbanism of Los Angeles in sublime otherworldliness. Arriving a decade ago, the Australian artist was immediately enthralled by the sprawling cityscape, mesmerized by the way the sunlight transformed it into two-dimensional, almost painterly abstractions, underpinned by a distinctive pastel color palette. Extending his practice beyond the confines of the lens by extracting elements from various images, his series Post Truth dwells in the liminal space between the real and the imagined. Reassembling the urban landscape into striking collages, Byrne creates postmodernist oases in the metropolis that masterfully harness the malleability of the photographic medium. His compositions evoke associations with the Memphis Group’s designs, as well as the work of David Hockney or Ed Ruscha, while tapping into the specific aesthetics of today’s visual culture as played out on Instagram. Filled with a sense of suspended reality, they never fail to convey a feeling of joy.

Gian Butturini
Londra 1968 / Derry 1972
Un fotografo contro 
Dalla Swinging London al Bloody Sunday
a cura di Gigliola Foschi e Stefano Piantini
Pazzini Editore, Villa Verucchio 2022, 80 pagine, Rilegato,23,5 x 29 cm, ISBN  9788862574136
euro 29,00
email if you want to buy [email protected]
Questo volume è stato pubblicato in occasione della mostra presso Still Fotografia, Milano, 26 gennaio - 6 marzo 2022
Gian Butturini dipinge Londra da una prospettiva nuova e documenta le incursioni tra le strade della città, popolate da ragazze in minigonna, immigrati, junkie, emarginati, abitanti della City che sembrano vivere in un mondo altro. Una Londra fuori dagli stereotipi Swinging. A tre anni di distanza, Butturini è in Irlanda del Nord, a Derry, una settimana dopo il tragico Bloody Sunday, testimone della radicalizzazione politica e militare in corso. Fissa le atmosfere cupe e minacciose di allora, tra barricate, cavalli di frisia, filo spinato, soldati armati di fucili automatici, auto bruciate ai lati delle strade, e i bambini, vittime innocenti in un drammatico conflitto.
