Capucci's designs first captured the attention of the international press in 1951, when he presented his collection in Florence. Considered one of Italy's greatest talents, he experimented with construction techniques and unconventional materials such as raffia, wire, and stones. He refused to compromise his artistic vision to commercial concerns, and after withdrawing from the formal fashion world in the early 1980s, he presented one collection a year, each in a different city around the world. Featuring more than 80 extraordinary works, including the iconic "sculpture dresses" with their inventive use of pleating, color, and form, Roberto Capucci is a captivating look at this brilliant designer who transcends the conventional line between fashion and art.

Capucci was an artist in fabric. He dressed Italian aristocracy including recently deceased Dr. Levi-Montalcini who wore one of his creations to the Nobel Prize ceremony. His clothes--color and creativity--are amazing. Ms. Blum is a meticulous and very gifted scholar--this book is great!
