Description
 
American designer Geoffrey Beene is regarded worldwide for the originality of his design, innovative use of fabrics, & unerring modernity over the course of some three decades. In this charming book, specially commissioned drawings of Beene’s garments are paired with a fanciful, poetic text. Beginning with the deceptively simple question, “What is beauty?,” the reader is led on a quest that is all about seeing & searching for meaning in life. Clues to “What is beauty?” are found in Beene’s designs for the female body, where seams & net insets point up the horizons of the hip, the dawn of the lower back, the interplanetary curve under the hips. Further hints go beyond the body’s geography to that of our own culture & time. Color illustrations.
