This book, published to accompany an exhibition at Triennale in Milan, is an example of how a multidisciplinary approach can be used to examine and inform. Work clothes are transformed from uniforms and the symbols of a profession into the expression of an individual identity, but also into a form of cladding that is at times far removed from its original function.

 

This book, published to accompany an exhibition at Triennale in Milan, is an example of how a multidisciplinary approach can be used to examine and inform. Work clothes are transformed from uniforms and the symbols of a profession into the expression of an individual identity, but also into a form of cladding that is at times far removed from its original function. This fascinating new study adopts a comprehensive approach to dress in terms of the work it is for and how the work people do transforms the way they dress. Forty Italian and international designers are featured in this exhibition and catalogue, each one expressing his own idea of workwear. The designers featured include: Afran, Rodrigo Almeida, Gentucca Bini, Denise Bonapace, Andrea Branzi, Klaudio Cetina, CoopHimelbau, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Elio Fiorucci, Nuala Goodman, Mella Jaarsma, Toshiyuiki Kita, Colomba Leddi, Franco Mazzucchelli, Issey Miyake, Frédérique Morrel, Clara Rota, Otto von Busch and Vivienne Westwood.

Silvana Editoriale was founded in 1948 by Amilcare Pizzi, as a way of remembering his daughter Silvana, who died prematurely in 1944. Through his commitment and passion, Pizzi expanded its business by publishing books of enormous value. In the mid-90s, Silvana redefined its publishing strategy, embarking on a path of growth and development on the national and international markets, focused on the fields of art, design, architecture and photography, all of which is documented in the on-site catalogue. Today, Silvana Editoriale publishes more than 400 titles a year in collaboration with Foundations, Research Institutes, Universities and Museums across Europe, the United States and the Middle East.
