Silver - From fetish to fashion

£65.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

PDN Publishing, 2005, First edition. Hardback, bound in black cloth with titles on front and spine in silver; Folio, 416 pp; copiously illustrated with colour images; illustrated D/J. Book condition: As New. D/J condition: As New. A fascination with silver lured Daniel and Serga Nadler onto a global quest spanning many years and countries. Their search for authentic tribal and ethnic jewellery led to the realization that fashion everywhere rules both costumes and accessories. To the famous dictum of male sartorial elegance: "Clothing makes the man." the authors add: "and jewellery defines the woman." Their quest's outcome is this magnificent volume viewing adornments through the prism of fashion. It also details a series of indefatigable and often humorous journeys as the authors scour markets, villages and shops in search of extraordinary silver jewellery and accessories. From the Foreword written by Tiffany & Co's Design Director, John Loring - a noted silver jewellery expert in his own right - plus a brilliant Introduction by Harold Koda, Curator of the Fashion Institute at New York's Metropolitan Museum, to an essay by the fashion world's icon, Oscar de la Renta, silver's reputation as a precious metal is undeniable. The book opens with the chapter"Accessorize!" The reader then joins the authors' travels around the globe, discussing their search for silver and the local customs, workmanships and styles. Their tale explores silver's traditions in Egypt, Tunisia, the Western Mahgreb, the Middle East, Greece and Turkey; Russia and the Caucasus; Turkmenistan; the Indian Subcontinent; the Indonesian Archipelago; the nationalities of Southeast Asia (Burma, Thailand, and Southern China); the Indians of the American Southwest; Mexico; and concludes with contemporary designers. The Nadlers' collection is stunning and the journey which the reader is taken on is - like the pieces themselves - truly magnificent.
