Draping is a technique that involves working with fabric directly on the mannequin. This allows the designer to start out from an idea that can change as the design of the piece progresses. In this process, creative freedom plays a more important and less rigid role than patterns and drawings on paper do. This publication is a practical step by step guide for students and fashion professionals who want to delve deeper into this technique used by big industry names such as Issey Miyake, Margela, Thierry Mugler, Iris van Herpen and many others. Focusing on a range of subjects, from the required tools and different examples of designs to the steps to be followed in creating jackets, skirts and dresses as well as more specific details, this book offers everything that readers need to learn the principles of draping step by step and have a solid basis for making their own creations without limiting their creativity.

Founded in a small town in Bavaria, Germany, the adidas brand has, for nearly a century, been outfitting international sports stars and pop culture icons such as David Beckham, Zinédine Zidane, and Run-DMC as well as everyday men, women, and children across the globe. The story of this evolution—illustrated with numerous historic photographs—is entwined with history, corporate trends, and the emergence of sports as a major factor in the world economy. Starting with the beginnings of the original Dassler brothers’ company in the time of the Weimar Republic and National Socialism, this book reveals the first academically-based look at the history of the family and the adidas company which was officially founded in 1949 after the brothers' separation. Using a worldwide range of sources, the authors also examine brand strategies and globalization since the 1960s. Since its beginnings, the name 'adidas' has been shrouded in legend and, in this special look at the rise of a global company, readers will learn the true story behind the brand.

The Watch Book I and II in one volume: Expansive knowledge from renowned watch expert and historian Gisbert L. Brunner alongside almost 1,000 high-quality color photographs brings together the latest innovations and most important names in top-end timekeeping under one roof.

However, classic timepieces with mechanical movement will not disappear from people’s wrists, because the ticking of a mechanical watch has been and will continue to be the heartbeat of human culture. After their individual success, the bestsellers The Watch Book I and The Watch Book II are finally available together in one comprehensive volume. Readers can feast their eyes and minds on a magnificently-illustrated and well-documented chronicle of the world's best timepieces. Portraits of more than 40 watch brands, from premium manufacturers Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Cartier to watches from the “affordable luxury” segment, right up to timepieces from the chronometric crème de la crème. We explore their unique features and quirks and learn about the remarkable breakthroughs and exclusive technical developments that have contributed to the history of the watch. This volume also includes a helpful glossary of important terms, making it an absolute must for both timepiece experts and collectors and those new to the world of watch artistry.

This extensive volume delves into the world of fragrances—the iconic brands and the creative minds behind the most fabulous perfumes. Fascinating interviews with parfumiers reveal their inspiration and explore such topics as how fragrances can be used at home or as signature scent. Try to describe a smell without thinking back to a place and time and it’s impossible not to have all five senses come into play. Scent is immersed in our lives. It conjures up memories of travels and temperatures, feelings about people and things. Fragrance transports you and can make your heart skip a beat. In A Scented World by author and design journalist Claire Bingham, we step inside the cradle of haute parfumerie and meet the talented aesthetes of the industry who are creating the most soothing and tantalizing scents for our olfactories. Where does the future of fragrance lie? How does the creation of a new scent begin? How do you capture the essence of a moment and release it upon a person’s skin? More than just a nose, their philosophy combines art and science. Part designer, cook, visionary, and engineer, their trade is built on a passion for botanicals and intuition. These fragrance heroes have the ability to take something everyday and with a unique blend of ingredients, craft it into something quite exquisite. This book steps into the lives of the modern perfume elite and discovers how to create an atmosphere just like the pros. As important as good food, wine, or music, fragrance brings beauty to daily life. Perfume is food for the soul.
