High heels : fashion. femininity, seduction( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The high-heeled shoe conjures self-assured allure and erotic intoxication like no other item of women's wear. Just recently the high heel has undergone a massive resurgence in popularity, in part reinventing itself through an overt invoking of fetish, with which the heel has of course always had some relationship. Built around a selection of images of heels from contemporary photography, "High Heels: Fashion, Femininity and Seduction" explores the confluence of art, fashion and fetish in the cult of high heels swooping down the fashion show runways and city streets everywhere. Illustrated with works from photographers such as Guy Bourdin, Juergen Teller, Bettina Rheims, Marilyn Minter, Tim Walker, Steven Klein, David Lachapelle and Vanessa Beecroft, among many others, "High Heels" also includes several important texts: an essay by Valerie Steele on the industry forces behind high-heel design; Tim Blanks of Style.com interviews Manolo Blahnik and Nicholas Kirkwood; Philip Delamore describes the technological developments behind the extreme contours of recent shoe design; Stella Bruzzi on high heels, gender, and representation in film; and an introduction by Ivan Vartanian, in conversation with James Crump, discusses the high heel as a vehicle for discussing a fetish for photography in general. "High Heels" is a visual odyssey through the powerful ideas of beauty, danger and seduction that the high heel evokes
The snippy world of New Yorker fashion artist Michael Roberts by Michael Roberts( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Roberts is the Jean Cocteau of the fashion world," wrote the celebrated New Yorker editor Tina Brown in 1997, welcoming her new fashion editor to the most prestigious magazine in the world. Having already served for many years as a style editor (The London Sunday Times, Vanity Fair) and having produced numerous illustrations, photographs, paintings, and columns of fashion criticism for various media, Roberts had already had his name coupled with Cocteau's, but his striking visual style is collected here for the first time. From evocative pen-and-ink sketches to acrylic paintings to intensely witty New Yorker covers created from cut paper, these works capture the fads, foibles, and fashionability of our times

Blahník by Boman : shoes, photographs, conversation by Eric Boman( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blahnik by Boman is a photographic collaboration between shoe designer extraordinaire Manolo Blahnik and his friend, photographer Eric Boman. In over 165 photographs, Blahnik's detailed, unabashedly luxurious and impossibly sexy shoes take centre stage in an array of settings - a furry slipper caught in a mouse trap; a nautical shoe on a jaunty day out at the beach; an achingly romantic shoe next to its love; a full-brown rose; a feather-trimmed shoe ferociously attacked by the owner of those very tail-feathers; a crocodile shoe found lurking in a swamp. Boman's unerring eye and uncanny empathy with Blahnik's creativity make for spellbinding and wickedly amusing pictures, which also allude to the collaborators' many shared and eclectic influences, from the cinema to history, from the natural world to art and literature." "This is a book, complete with snippets of conversation between Blahnik and Boman, and an introduciton by their great friend Paloma Picasso, is a visual dialogue between two outstandingly creative talents."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A shoe is a very complicated object to design. It is art, but involves mini architecture: materials, techniques, tooling. The end result is a fantasy sculpture to look at, but has another life when it is worn."--Kobi Levi Exotic shoes have been around for centuries. Sandals made of solid gold were found in the royal tombs of ancient Egypt. Six hundred years ago, women teetered around Venice in chopines with platforms up to a foot high. And in China, tiny golden lotus shoes were brightly colored and elaborately embroidered. In the twentieth century, Salvatore Ferragamo introduced platform
