Leatrice Eiseman, Keith Recker – PANTONE, storia del XX secolo a colori

Editore: Rizzoli

Anno di pubblicazione: 2011

Numero di pagine: 208

Prezzo:   29.00

Dall’oro pallido e dal malva chiaro dell’Esposizione Universale del 1900 al ruggine, al rosso bruno e al blu notte di fine millennio: il Novecento è stato un secolo all’insegna dei colori. Con questo volume riccamente illustrato, Pantone – pioniere della classificazione del colore e standard di riferimento per professionisti e creativi di tutto il mondo – documenta la storia “cromatica” di questi cent’anni. Gli autori, Leatrice Eiseman e Keith Recker, identificano oltre duecento pezzi storici d’arte, arredamento e moda rivelando le palette che hanno caratterizzato il panorama visivo e cromatico di ciascun decennio. Il rossetto color “vino” e gli abiti “rosa polvere” che si accorciano al ginocchio incarnavano con sconcertante precisione la nuova donna dei ruggenti anni Venti. Negli anni Cinquanta, il nuovo ottimismo della ripresa economica si esprimeva in colori come “goccia di limone” e “turchese pastello” usati nelle ceramiche e nei piani di lavoro in Formica. In seguito, nel corso degli anni Settanta, la ricerca dei paradisi esotici e dei tramonti bordeaux e blu scuro in stile Hotel California vira poi nel nero che ha segnato la disillusione dei primi anni Ottanta. Un libro che racconta le tendenze sociali e la storia del colore con l’apporto di bellissime immagini e con un “vocabolario” e una tavolozza che solo Pantone può offrire e che, attraverso lo studio del secolo passato, regala ispirazione per il futuro.

PANTONE® fashion. Un secolo di colori nella moda – Leatrice Eiseman, E. P. Cutler

Anno di pubblicazione: 2014

Numero di pagine:130

Prezzo: 29.00

“Dalla passione anni Venti per il verde foresta (Hunter Green, Pantone 19-5511) al fascino vampiresco esercitato nel 2000 dalla sfumatura del vino rosé (Rose Wine, Pantone 17-1623), la moda evolve anzitutto attraverso il colore. C’è poi un motivo se Pantone è un’autorità e un punto di riferimento per gli stilisti di tutto il mondo: conosce meglio di chiunque altro la relazione tra i colori e la storia dell’abbigliamento. In queste pagine l’esperta di colori Leatrice Eiseman e la storica E.P. Cutler rileggono la colorata vicenda della moda con tutta l’autorevolezza di Pantone: il testo, accompagnato da foto di sfilate e immagini d’archivio, ripercorre non solo la nascita e la rinascita delle tendenze cromatiche nella moda, ma anche i significati assunti da ogni tinta nei diversi decenni. Il rosa (Heavenly Pink, Pantone 12-1305), per esempio, negli anni Cinquanta era un colore infantile e iper-femminile, ma nel nuovo millennio è stato impiegato da Sarah Burton di Alexander McQueen per creazioni surrealiste e fantascientifiche. Una molteplicità di fattori, dagli eventi di cronaca alla psicologia collettiva, influenza l’alternarsi delle sfumature dominanti nella moda di ogni epoca. Con un’appendice sul colore Pantone dell’anno – quindici nuance di tendenza che hanno ispirato gli stilisti nei primi anni del nuovo secolo -, questo libro è una guida alla storia del colore nella moda, negli ultimi cent’anni e per il futuro. “
