The companion volume to viction:ary´s upcoming publication ´´Palette 01: Black & White - New Monochrome Graphics´´, ´´Palette 02: Multicolour - New Rainbow-Hued Graphics´´ looks at the most engaging use of color in print design, packaging, installations, fashion, and architecture. While other color books have focused on the use of a single color in a design, ´´Multicolour - New Rainbow-Hued Graphics´´ concerns itself with the harmonious or dischordant - but always stunning - interplay of multiple colors in a design. The sheer resourcefulness of the featured designers is evident in this collection of cleverly manipulated graphic elements and forms. Projects within include screenprinted restaurant interior walls, reimagined color wheels, delicate yarn installations, tea canisters in every pantone shade, and even an entire neighborhood of multistory buildings in Brazil connected by painted color rays winding around the dwelling exteriors.

The first monograph on the ´´godfather of streetwear,´´ this book pays homage to Hiroshi Fujiwara´s influence on contemporary fashion, music, and design. The most comprehensive book devoted to the extensive work of Hiroshi Fujiwara-a pioneer in streetwear, music, and art, and the ultimate arbiter of cool. Known internationally as one of the founding fathers of Tokyo´s Harajuku scene, Fujiwara exerts a disproportionate influence over contemporary design culture. Having collaborated with the likes of Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood as a teenager in the early 1980s, he merged a seminal interest in punk with hip-hop and skate culture to become one of Japan´s principal tastemakers. A musician and producer, Fujiwara is also one of the most prolific sneaker designers, and his kicks are some of the most sought-after collectibles. In addition to his very visible and long-standing collaborations with Nike, he has authored a number of fashion lines and is at the head of the Tokyo-based Fragment Design. Chronicling his reign as the arbiter of hip for more than thirty years, this book presents the breadth of his career, including sections on his highly sought-after artwork and graphics, sneakers, product design, and curated personal effects. With contributions by Sarah Lerfel and Ino Hidefumi, this graphically inspired book provides a unique glimpse into one of the most influential tastemakers of our time and is the perfect follow-up to Rizzoli´s Pharrell: Places and Spaces I´ve Been.
The new looks, updated traditions, and influential designers defining men´s fashion today, from the world´s capital of gentlemen´s style. Combining the unique heritage of gentlemen´s tailoring with a progressive approach to street style, London is fast becoming the world´s capital of men´s fashion. For this book, Dylan Jones presents a discerning sartorialist´s guide to the capital, from London´s coolest neighborhoods to the studios of its most influential designers and beyond. Beginning with an exploration of London´s chicest urban villages, the book reflects the extraordinary eclecticism of the city´s street style-from envelope-pushing streetwear in Shoreditch to classic tailoring in Mayfair. Forays into the coolest and hardest-to-find menswear shops in the city at once reveal the sources of the fashions on display and capture the atmosphere of the capital. At the heart of the book are profiles of London´s top designers-from world renowned brands to up-and-coming names, these are the designers whose work is shaping the future of menswear. Legends such as Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, whose flair for subversion colors their refinement, sit alongside younger designers such as Christopher Shannon and Agi & Sam, pioneers of bringing graphics and pattern to luxury streetwear. Icons of classic elegance such as Tom Ford and Burberry contrast with a new generation of designers, from Nigel Cabourn to Mr. Hare, whose redefined silhouettes and innovative materials take the traditions of Savile Row into the new millennium.
