Product Overview

A lively and multifaceted portrait of a true icon of the fashion world of the 1970s. Universally renowned as the master of the total look, Walter Albini created his first collection in 1963. After a meeting with Mariuccia Mandelli he worked with the Krizia atelier and, during his latest season, beside Karl Lagerfeld. Research on dress-making and fabric is one of the all-time features of Albini’s work, to whom must be ascribed the birth of a new kind of relationship between the designer and the fabric manufacturer, opening a new groupage concept for advertising on specialized periodicals. This book addresses a crucial moment in the history of fashion: the birth of prêt-à-porter with the definitive overcoming of the atelier and the achievement of a certain democracy in fashion. Walter Albini was a protagonist of this moment, aware as he was of the necessity for change and innovation in people’s taste.
