All That Glitters: inside the Barbican’s “vulgar” catalogue

Vulgar_cover-1

Pearls, glitter, super-sized hats and see-through bodystockings: what do you consider “vulgar”? Barbican is asking that very question in its new exhibition: The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined, which looks at 500 years of fabulous excess across 120 OTT objects from ready-to-wear and couture designers including Chloé, Christian Dior, Pam Hogg, Christian Lacroix, Lanvin, Moschino, Miuccia Prada, Agent Provocateur, Philip Treacy, Viktor & Rolf, Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood.

Rather less vulgar however, is the exhibition’s catalogue. Published by Koenig Books, the publication is thoughtfully and exquisitely designed, with a pale pink and gold cover. The 256-page, hard-cover tome, edited by Jane Alison and Sinéad McCarthy, includes over 200 images of ready-to-wear, couture and historic fashion, photography, manuscripts and textiles from the exhibition. Illustrations by Alice Smith bring to life definitions, quotes and discussions around the idea of vulgarity by the exhibition’s curator Judith Clark and psychoanalyst and writer Adam Phillips.

The Vulgar: Fashion Redefined is on at Barbican until 5 February 2017.

Riikka_laakso_tove_int_list Work / Publication Riikka Laakso’s screenprinted zine is a tribute to Moomin author Tove Jansson

Berlin-based illustrator Riikka Laakso has created this screenprinted zine using sparse colour palettes and simple linework.

Yeji_yun_on_the_rocks_int_list Work / Publication Yeji Yun’s imaginative zine combines frozen lands, whales and cocktails

Seoul-based illustrator Yeji Yun has created On The Rocks, a little zine about “ice and alcohol” which begins with a whale and ends with inuits hunting for ice in the deep blue sea and then serving cocktails to their animal friends. The story was inspired by Yeji’s recent experiences. “I’ve started to enjoy going to bars – all those spirits, whiskies and cocktails are something new and fun to explore,” she says. “I like observing how bartenders make cocktails using different shapes of ice and glasses, which in turn provided inspiration for the story.”

Cdec_cc_its_nice_that_8 Work / Publication Córdova Canillas seek inspiration between nostalgia and obsolescence for Spanish Advertising Annual

Each year the C de C (Creatives’ Club) selects a Spanish studio to design its advertising annual. This year Córdova Canillas has been appointed to create the 17th edition. The studio developed the concept ‘between nostalgia and obsolescence’ and took inspiration from the encyclopaedia for two reasons: “Firstly, as an unifier of content by nature, and secondly, because of its symbolic value as an object,” the studio explains. “Since C de C commissioned us the annual as a reference book, its design should facilitate the task of finding things. The design of this annual will last over time, its conception levitates between modern, for its details, and conservative, for its structure. Its design is part of a tradition and as an object it forms part of our memory.”
