Gianfranco Ferré Under Another Light: Jewels and Ornament (Paperback)
With more than 100 photographs, Gianfranco Ferr Under Another Light looks at the costume jewelry of Italian designer Gianfranco Ferr (1944-2007). Ferr himself said of this somewhat neglected side of his oeuvre: "intended as a decorative element of clothing, 'my' jewelry becomes a tool for its interpretation, for a subjective and individual reading of the garment. If clothing is an object--the 'thing is worn'--then jewelry is the expression of the way, of 'how it's worn.'"
Amid the diversity of objects presented in this volume, there emerges a connection between bijoux and clothing collections, which Ferr always conceived in parallel with each other, and tied to the inescapable reference point, the human body--giving preference to its key parts, from the neck to the wrists and the waist.
