High fashion unquestionably goes hand-in-hand with sartorial and stylistic perfection. A driving force behind the entire fashion and garment industry, it represents the search for new solutions concerning fabrics, style, or patterns. In this context, the patternmaker is an essential figure, bringing the stylist's ideas into reality. In our richly illustrated new volume of the Fashion Patternmaking series, the prolific author Antonio Donnanno, an offspring of a tailor family, patternmaking teacher, and director of a fashion school network, describes in detail the methods and techniques used in high-fashion patternmaking in an understandable and step-by-step way.

Drawn from the extensive holdings of the Staatliche Museen in Berlin, this collection of jewellery through the ages links cultures and eras to show how the design, wearing, and collecting of personal adornment has evolved over the ages. They range from classic items such as necklaces, rings and earrings to less common items with origins in non-European cultures. The book features jewellery ranging from the splendid crowns of ancient Greece, gold earrings from Babylon and jewelled collars worn by 13th-century Islamic royalty to more modern pieces such as those contained in the imperial collection of Queen Louise of Prussia, Art Nouveau jewellery designed by Rene Lalique, and work by contemporary designers. This chronologically arranged survey includes numerous brief essays and nearly 400 illustrations with detailed captions, making it an ideal reference for anyone interested in cultural history, the history of jewellery, or the art and craft of jewellery making.

Graphic tees have been around for decades now, representing as-pects of our lives we are not afraid to share in public, from social and political affiliations to artistic and musical preferences, life-style pursuits or sense of humor. Freestyle focuses on one distinct style of this artwork on ap-parel: the simple line illustration. Whether representational or ab-stract, there is a looseness there, a studied playfulness which ap-peals to our sense of whimsy. Brands respond by commissioning some of the world’s best artists to create graphics that speak to their consumers while exemplifying their graphic identities. Not limited to t-shirts, this survey includes sneakers, hats, glasses and accessories, all displaying this casualness of form.
