Independent fashion brand Bianca e Blu by Monica Bolzoni is celebrated in this extensive visual survey, spanning the best years of Italian fashion design. Described as "one of the greatest artistic personalities of this century" by Vogue Italia, Monica Bolzoni's designs anticipated many of the concepts of today's fashion, such as modularity and tailoring. Structured as an ABC book, this volume reflects the multiple facets of Bianca e Blu through a wealth of visual material from the company's archives: drawings, vintage images, fabrics, accessories, fashion stories, artworks, film stills, and stage images, accompanied by critical texts, press cuttings, and interviews.Master's students from ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne have conversed with Bianca e Blu Archives, producing new fashion stories and a fresh graphic identity for the brand.
