Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"(un)FASHION" scans the globe to show how real people dress: at work and at play, on the streets, and for ceremonial occasions. This witty, eye-popping book offers a delightfully unconventional view of contemporary fashion as seen in the creative ways that people around the world adorn their bodies. The brainchild of the late Tibor Kalman, one of the graphic design geniuses of the 20th century, and completed by his wife and partner, Maira Kalman, "(un)FASHION" presents its provocative observations through dynamic images by some of the world's foremost photojournalists.

Book News Annotation:

There's no text; simply page after page of intriguing color photos, chosen with sly intelligence, that show how people dress around the world. Arrangement is by theme (e.g. headgear, extreme conditions, eyewear), and the photos are identified at the end. Graphic designer and social activist Kalman (1949-1999)--he was the editor of Benetton's Colors magazine--had finished the picture selection and design of this book before he died, and the work was completed by his wife Maira, a children's book author and illustrator. This is a reprint of the 2000 publication.
