Description
Coinciding with the label’s relaunch, iconic publisher Rizzoli have debuted the most comprehensive account of Fiorucci’s history to date. Captured across 192 technicolor pages, Elio’s most celebrated collaborators recount Fiorucci’s legacy in all its hedonistic glory. Marc Jacobs, Maripol, Madonna mentions and more.In the age of the influencer, this book shows us what that word really means. Ask anyone, and they have a story about Fiorucci. In her foreword, Sofia Coppola remembers her first encounter with the brand at its 5th avenue store. “Those were the women I wanted to grow up to be: confident, arty, mysterious and fun.” It worked for her… and Marc Jacobs, also a teenage worshipper at the Fiorucci altar. “I was living with my grandmother in New York City, and I wanted Fiorucci jeans so badly,” Jacobs recalls. “I spent the entire summer of my fifteenth year hanging out at the store.”Alongside Jacobs and Coppola, the book features exclusive interviews from some of the brand’s most illustrious fans, in conversation with David Owen, founder of Idea Books. Terry Jones, Maripol, Oliviero Toscani and more. Fans whose influence spans generations, just like Fiorucci. Longtime devotee and Soulwax frontman David Dewaele recounts his obsessive collecting of Fiorucci memorabilia, whilst Maripol recalls a little known singer called Madonna taking to the stage at one of their unforgettable parties.
