"The catalogue that accompanies the 2016 Costume Institute exhibition "Manus x Machina" features exceptional fashions that reconcile traditional hand techniques with innovative machine technologies such as 3-D printing, laser cutting, circular knitting, computer modeling, bonding and laminating, and ultrasonic welding. Featuring 90 astonishing pieces, ranging from Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's iconic tweed suit to Karl Lagerfeld's 3-D-printed version, and from Yves Saint Laurent's bird-of-paradise dress to Iris van Herpen's silicone adaptation - all beautifully photographed by Nicholas Alan Cope - this fascinating book is an exploration of both the artistry and the future of fashion. Interviews with Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen; Hussein Chalayan, Maria Grazia Chiuri, and Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino; Nicolas Ghesquière of Louis Vuitton; Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler; Iris van Herpen; Christopher Kane; Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel; Miuccia Prada; and Gareth Pugh enhance this expansive and absorbing book." -- Publisher's description
