Frida Kahlo’s Wardrobe FRIDA KAHLO’S WARDROBE Edited by CLAIRE WILCOX

Claire Wilcox, ed.

Published to accompany the V&A’s exhibition, Frida Kahlo’s Wardrobe (16 June 2018 – 14 October 2018) In 1954, following Frida Kahlo’s death at the age of 47, Diego Rivera, Kahlo’s husband and Mexican muralist, requested that her possessions be sealed in various cupboards and storerooms throughout the Blue House in Mexico City, where Kahlo was born, lived and died. Half a century later, in 2004, these cupboards were opened and found to contain an extraordinary collection of clothing, jewellery, cosmetics and other personal items, as well as photographs and letters.

The great age of ocean travel has long since passed, but ocean liners remain one of the most powerful and admired symbols of modernity. No form of transport was as romantic, remarkable, or contested, and ocean liner design became a matter of national prestige as well as an arena in which the larger dynamics of global competition were played out. This beautifully illustrated book considers over a century of liner design: from the striking graphics created to promote liners to the triumphs of engineering, and from luxurious interiors to on board fashion and activities. Ocean Liners explores the design of Victorian and Art Deco ‘floating palaces’, sleek post-war liners as well as these ships’ impact on avant-garde artists and architects such as Le Corbusier. Daniel Finamore is Russell W. Knight Curator of Maritime Art and History, Peabody Essex Museum. Ghislaine Wood is Deputy Director of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at the University of East Anglia and Fellow of the V&A Research Department.


Fashioned from Nature Edwina Ehrman, ed.

Published to accompany the V&A’s exhibition, Fashioned from Nature (21 April 2018 – 24 February 2019) Fashion has always sought to celebrate nature – from sumptuous silks and floral patterns, to the spectacular creations of designers such as Alexander McQueen and Christian Dior, the two have long been entwined. Yet this reverence is sometimes combined with a damaging need for raw materials. From the seventeenth century to the present day, Fashioned from Nature examines our dependence on the natural world and the devastating effect of certain trends as seen in the demand for ivory and exotic feathers and the impact of today’s intensive consumerism and thirst for fast fashion.

The Future Starts Here Rory Hyde, Kieran Long and Mariana Pestana, eds

Published to accompany the V&A’s exhibition, The Future Starts Here (12 May 2018 – 4 November 2018) Design will play an ever-increasing role in every aspect of our future. From our DNA to the cosmos, from our planet to our desks, our futures will be mapped by the objects we use and the people who build them.

The Future Starts Here examines the cutting edge of technology and how it shapes our everyday lives. Looking at real objects being developed today – including a UAV (or drone) built by Facebook to beam the internet down from space, and a robot developed by UC Berkeley that will do the laundry – expert authors show how design and technology impact every level of life, from sub-microscopic aspects of the human body to the entire planet. The staggering developments featured here are all happening now, and we all have a say in how they will shape our future. Kieran Long is Director of ArkDes, the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design. Rory Hyde and Mariana Pestana are curators in the Design, Digital and Architecture department at the V&A.

Francis Marshall: Drawing Fashion Oriole Cullen, with a foreword by David Downton This book opens an exciting and extensive archive of fashion illustration by Francis Marshall (1901–1980), held at the V&A. Marshall’s career coincided with the golden age of fashion illustration and commercial art. Active from the 1920s until the 1960s, Marshall’s work was published widely, from Vogue magazine to the more accessible and widely read pages of the Daily Mail and covers for Barbara Cartland’s novels. He also worked extensively in advertising, for companies such as Jaeger, Fortnum and Mason, Liberty and Elizabeth Arden, and released several books – ranging from manuals on drawing fashion or ballet, to the nostalgic records of fashionable society London West and An Englishman in New York. This new book shines a light on this sometimes-forgotten master, at a time when fashion illustration is very much in style. Oriole Cullen is Senior Curator in the Furniture, Textiles and Fashion department at the V&A.

graphs. Surprisingly for the society-conscious author, it also investigates the less sparkling side of the city, with the author traversing the city’s neighbourhoods, capturing tenement-living, backstreets and the play of light and dark in the architectural canyons [spreads from Cecil Beaton’s Portrait of New York here?]. Marshall’s book is more of a souvenir, titled as it is An Englishman in New York and focusing on the social life of the city - from drinks at The Stork Club to the viewing deck of the Empire State Building to a downtown Greenwich Village cabaret. He also includes the minutiae of New York life and the modern habits that were a

world away from austerity Britain, describing places such as Hamburger Heaven and the Soda Fountain and recording the practice of help-yourself shopping in early versions of the supermarket and the discount department store Klein’s. Both Marshall and Beaton’s views of the cosmopolitan demographic are a product of their time. In Marshall’s book a trace of the young illustrator who visited the Wembley exhibition of 1924 (with the globe neatly categorized in Pavilions of the Empire), is clearly present and the Chinese American inhabitants of Chinatown and members of the African American communities are described by Marshall as strange and unusual, which makes for uncomfortable reading today. Whilst in New York Marshall also completed a number of work assignments, including sketching for the Daily Mail at Elizabeth Arden’s famed salon. Although he had been drawing their advertisements in English magazines for many years, he noted ‘it’s rather amusing because my name evidently means nothing to Arden over here as all their advertisements are done by Bouché’ (René Robert Bouché was one of the most prolific and celebrated international fashion artists whose star had risen in the 1930s). Marshall completed a series of illustrations for pattern company McCalls for which he was paid $800 and noted that in England he would expect to be paid £80 for the same work, musing on how much easier it was to make a living as an illustrator in America. Ultimately, despite the invigorating time and the lucrative work Marshall was glad to return to England in time for Christmas 1946.

Hints on Hats: Adapted to the Heads of the People Henry Melton NEW: May £7.00* EB ISBN 9781851779475 BIC: AKT FASHION & TEXTILES ‘It is not easy to write an advertisement which shall fill a hundred pages demy octavo, yet be clever enough to be read, and we congratulate Mr. Melton on his success.’ The Spectator, 5 August 1865

ABC of Men’s Fashion Hardy Amies NEW: May £7.00* EB ISBN 9781851779529 BIC: AKT FASHION & TEXTILES ‘Trust us, the entry for “Gold” alone is worth buying a copy for’, Nick Carvell, GQ, 7 July 2016

Brought up to enter a learned profession, Henry Melton very successfully overcame his ‘aversion to going into trade’ and became hatter to the Prince of Wales. First published in 1865, Hints on Hats is a delightfully idiosyncratic account of Melton’s rise from opening a shop (having seen an opportunity for wealth and fame) to hatter to Edward VII and Prince Albert, whose patronage he was quick to exploit.

Hardy Amies’ skillful eye guides the reader safely through style decisions on everything from blazers and brogues to skiing and sandals. Illustrated with delightful photographs and drawings, it provides a fascinating window into the etiquette of men’s dress in the 1960s.
