“Made in Italy” is an internationally recognized mark of style. From the 1940s to the present day, Italy’s fashion achievements—haute couture design and innovative ready-to-wear, artisanal leather and fur production, high-end textiles, knitwear, and fine tailoring—are undeniable. Featuring designers and labels of the highest caliber alongside bespoke tailors and ready-to-wear menswear specialists, this book offers an unparalleled look at the inspiration, marketing, skill, and craftsmanship behind the finest Italian labels. Specially commissioned essays are paired with stunning fashion photography, archival material, and previously unseen objects from private collections to illuminate the secrets of Italy’s la bella moda.
Sonnet Stanfill is a curator of 20th-century and contemporary fashion at the V&A. She curated a number of exhibitions over the last decade and has edited the accompanying publications.
