Fetishism in Fashion by Lidewij Edelkoort
The newest publication from Frame Publishers is a book about fashion which delves into the world of contemporary fetishism. Its release coincides with the Mode Biennale Arnhem 2013.
Fetishism in Fashion by internationally-renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort explores the world of fashion through a fetishistic lens to reveal an instinctive future for style and culture.
The reference book investigates the evolution of taste from birth to adulthood, the elevation of shoes through ever-higher heels, the psychology of branding, the effects of infantilism, the power of the colour black, the fetishising of objects, and the interaction with skin and the body.
With visually-rich – and sometimes shocking – photography and essays by established authors discussing art, clothing, design, textiles, food and beauty, this in-depth publication sheds new light on the fetishism phenomenon.
More than 50 fetishes are illustrated by inspiring visuals from the likes of Leigh Bowery and Erwin Olaf, boundary-stretching works from designers such as Formafantasma and Alexander McQueen, and eye-opening essays by Susan Piët and Valerie Steele, amongst others.
Bolder, crazier and more outlandish fashions are on the horizon, making this new book a key reference in a new era of experimentation and intense creativity, unveiling the intimate ties that bind us.
