Description
Abandoning his studies in Florence for the Swinging London fashion scene of Mary Quant, Italian designer Emilio Cavallini made his name with wildly colored and patterned hosiery. He designed for Quant, Dior, Gucci, and other major fashion houses before opening his own label in 1980, creating his distinctive open-mesh hosiery and developing apparel based on body stockings. Cavallini's passion for woven materials has also led him to create elaborately engineered art pieces from textiles. This abundantly illustrated monograph surveys Cavallini's five-decade career, and the book is an art object in its own right, with a laminated silver cover wrapped in a webbed stocking.

"The book is an unbelievable paean to this fashion accessory that was raised to the level of an art form via Mr. Cavallini's talents and manufacturing abilities and facilities.... The photography is beyond beautiful and really offers us a visual library of this man's creative abilities."NYJournal of Books
