Restrooms can be the hidden gems of an interior design scheme; every building needs them yet they are often overlooked in favour of the more public spaces. This book sets out to remedy this by covering more than 45 of the best recent designs from around the world by major international designers. Organized into chapters by type of interior restaurants, hotels, bars and clubs, public restrooms and other public buildings for each project there are numerous images together with plans, where useful, showing the location and interior arrangement of the space, making this an invaluable resource for both interior designers and architects.
Menswear is the most creative and dynamic area in fashion today. Changing attitudes, a relaxation of dress codes and larger disposable incomes have all led to men spending more money on looking good than ever before. Modern menswear is defying convention and changing the fashion landscape. Creating this focus is a group of visionaries who have shifted the boundaries of menswear design. Designers who have broken with tradition to visualize radical and directional clothing. They are not concerned with the formalities and traditions of menswear but see their garments as an expression of contemporary thought. With a huge range of imagery, Modern Menswear showcases these fashion leaders, profiling big names and emerging talent from across the world. Designers featured include Marc Jacobs, Yoji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano, providing an insight into their design processes and their contribution to the contemporary fashion aesthetic.
