In Italy and Mediterranean France the culture of wine and the world of fashion are elegantly entwined and today each holds up one end of the standard of quality and sophistication that consumers all over the world recognize as "European." Designer Paola Caovilla's book shows just how long ago-and how artfully-fashion and design incorporated wine culture into its own. Her selection of iconographic material from fashion and art history shows the connection again and again: the grape leaf as a standard element in illuminated manuscripts to the grapevine chalice as the basis of Capucci's extraordinary dresses in the eighties. Wine's rich colors, shapes and motifs emerge from splendid jewelry, dresses, textiles, accessories and in shop displays that are pictured here with quotes and flashes of insight that dance the reader through the colors, scents, and tastes of the past and present of two preeminently European traditions.

The Invention of Taste provides a detailed overview of the development of taste, from ancient times to the present. At the heart of the book is an intriguing question: why did the sensory attribute of human taste become a social metaphor and aesthetic value for judging cultural qualities of art, fashion, cuisine and other social constructions? Unique amongst the senses, taste is at once a biologically derived sense, private, personal and individual, yet also a sensibility which can be acquired, shared, and communicated. Exploring the many factors that defined the evolution of taste Â? from medieval morals and medicine to social and cultural philosophy, the rise of aesthetics, birth of fashion, branding trends, and luxury worship in the age of mass consumption Â? Luca Vercelloni's ambitious text provides readers with an outstanding introduction to the subject, making it the cultural history of taste. Now available for the first time in English, Taste features a new final chapter and a preface by series editor David Howes. Rich in detail and examples, this interdisciplinary work is an important read for students and researchers in sensory studies, philosophy, sociology and cultural studies, as well as gastronomy, fashion, design, and branding.

African-Print Fashion Now introduces visitors to a dynamic and diverse African dress tradition and the increasingly interconnected fashion worlds that it inhabits: ?popular? African-print styles created by local seamstresses and tailors across the continent; international runway fashions designed by Africa?s newest generation of couturiers; and boundary-breaking, transnational, and youth styles favored in Africa?s urban centers. All feature the colorful, boldly designed, manufactured cotton textiles that have come to be known as ?African-print cloth.? The book tells the global stories of these textiles?the early history of the print cloth trade in West and Central Africa, the expansion of production following independence movements, and the increasing popularity of Asian-made print cloth today. Popular African styles from Ghana, Nigeria, Cote d?Ivoire, Cameroon, and Senegal are featured, as well as groundbreaking runway fashions by some of Africa?s most talented couturiers: Ituen Basi, Gilles Tour�, Lanre da Silva Ajayi, Titi Ademola, Lisa Folawiyo, Dent de Man, Adama Paris, Patricia Waota, Ikir� Jones, and Afua Dabanka. Black-and-white studio portraits illuminate print fashions of the 1960s and 1970s, while works by contemporary artists incorporate African print to convey evocative messages about heritage, hybridity, displacement, and aspiration. Contemporary photographs by Omar Victor Diop, Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou, and Hassan Hajjaj; paintings by Njideka Akunyili Crosby and Eddy Kamuanga Ilunga; and a mural by graffiti artist Docta suggest the ever-present role of fashion in African life. Throughout the volume, African-print fashions are considered as creative responses to key historical moments and the imaginings of Africa in the future.
