Description
PEPIN is a series of thematic titles on various types of textile and dress - including unusual and overlooked styles. Each volume contains introductory text, fashion plates an/or historical images to show the subject in its original context and high-quality photographs and drawings of clothing, patterns, decorative details, etc. A wide selection of these images is saved on the enclosed CDs. 'Flower power' is an expression associated with Hippie culture of the late 1960s and represents a style in which flowers as symbols of love and peace were omnipresent. On clothing floral imagery was embroidered, woven and printed in all shapes and sizes. FLOWER POWER contains more than 150 reproductions of typical Flower Power designs, ranging from all-over patterns of tiny flowers to giant blooms covering entire garments. The term flower power is an expression associated with the peace movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. It permeated practically all forms of popular culture of the time, including music, painting and design. In fashion, FLOWER POWER represents a striking style, using lots of strong and contrasting colours and bold, flowery imagery. This volume in the PEPIN series contains more than 50 reproductions of typical flower power designs, as well as photographs of many amazing and beautiful Flower Power garments, such as flared trousers, tent dresses, jumpsuits and mini skirts.
