Foreword / Philippe de Montebello -- From three dimensions to two -- The analytical art -- Pattern and collage -- Modern enterprises -- Fashion rendering -- Persistent cubism -- Art and fashion.
"Cubism and Fashion demonstrates for the first time how the fundamental traits of Cubist art were translated into fashion during the critical years from 1908 into the early 1920s and how Cubism has continued to influence designers even to the present. This volume, by juxtaposing art and fashion, shows how many of the most glittering and elegant dresses of the teens and twenties benefited from Cubist concepts. Significantly, this book does not extol rudimentary drawings for apparel by Cubist artists, but rather presents a critical study of the most accomplished creations by Poiret, Vionnet, Chanel, and other premier designers who assimilated Cubist principles. Here their work is shown next to art works by Georges Braque, Robert Delaunay, Juan Gris, Fernand Leger, Pablo Picasso, and other seminal artists of the early twentieth century."--Jacket.
