Uncommon exhibition catalogue featuring retrospective works from the legendary designer from 1985 through 2012.
Near fine or better.
"Thus, Giorgio Armani the purist, Giorgio Armani the meticulous designer, who in show rehearsals takes away from a dress and then takes away some more until reaching a purity of form, Giorgio Armani the minimalist, reveals through this exhibition of dresses and accessories from 1985 to present a fantastical aesthetic, an extravagant vision that appears to transform the very essence of things." — Introduction
A lush production gathering color sketches and photographs of dress, show, jewelry, and other fashion designs, as well as images from the pop-up exhibition itself — which was mounted by Armani throughout 2013 and traveled (briefly) to Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, New York, and Rome. A surprisingly elusive volume, likely because each staging of the show typically lasted only a few days. A beautiful tribute.
(Milan): (Giorgio Armani), (2013). 10.5" x 9.5". String-bound color cloth pictorial wraps with white titles against a dark telescopic view of the night sky.  pages on various stocks. Trace wear at tips. Else bright, clean, and sharp.
