Description
Although separated by decades, fashion designers Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli—both Italian, both feminists—share striking affinities in terms of their strategies and philosophies. Harold Koda and Andrew Bolton, curators of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, present this striking catalogue as a visual conversation between the designers. Archival, sometimes iconic black and white images of Schiaparelli's fashions from the 1920s and 30s are paired with 21st-century color photos and close-up views showing the sumptuous details in Prada's creations; the catalogue itself is covered in lipstick-printed fabric.

"The catalogue is just as brilliantly conceived as the show and visitors who do purchase a copy will be well-rewarded when they consider these women's words without being elbowed by fellow museum-goers."—Studio International
