  • Africa Rising: Fashion, Design and Lifestyle from Africa

    Africa Rising: Fashion, Design and Lifestyle from Africa

    African fashion and design is colourful, unconventional, fresh, elegant, and self-confident. Africa Rising showcases the work of young creatives from the continent's vibrant metropolises. Africa Rising calls stereotypes and archaic cliches into question. Insightful essays from experts and artisans contextualise each portrait and provide insight into talented pioneers, outstanding projects, and the way craft can be a catalyst for social and economic developments. A comprehensive portrait of Africa manifests from marrying Peter Mabeo's furniture made from indigenous wood or Nobukho Nqaba's body of photographic work that handles the themes of migration and foreignness through the clever use of every day objects or the publicly-minded architecture of David Adjaye with the up-and-coming threads of Selly Raby Kane's energetic fashion line or the soundscapes of Spoek Mathambo's Fantasma that fix Bantu lyrics to computerized beats.The volume is co-edited by Design Indaba: a multifaceted design platform that garners worldwide critical acclaim for their annual design conference held in Cape Town. Africa Rising celebrates the way art strengthens and unifies cultures and, most importantly, invokes the multi-faceted richness of Africa.

  • Arabic Script on Christian Kings

    Arabic Script on Christian Kings

    Roger II's famous mantle and other royal garments from twelfth- and thirteenth-century Sicily prominently display Arabic inscriptions. While the phenomenon is highly unusual in the context of Latin Christian kingship, the use of inscriptions as a textile ornament was common and imbued with political functions in the Islamic courts of the medieval Mediterranean. This case study of the inscribed garments from Norman Sicily draws attention to the diverse functions of Arabic textile inscriptions using various contextual frames. Such a contextual approach not only highlights the specificities of the Norman textile inscriptions and emphasises the practical and political choices underlying their use at the Sicilian court, it also pinpoints the flaws of universalising approaches to transcultural ornamental in circulation in the medieval Mediterranean. This new perspective on the royal garments from Norman Sicily draws from a variety of disciplines, including Islamic and European art history, the history of textiles, epigraphy, legal history and historiography, and aims to challenge established notions of cultural and disciplinary boundaries.

  • Brilliant!: The Futures of Italian Jewellery

    Brilliant!: The Futures of Italian Jewellery

    The fine jewels of Admirable Manufacture, the elegance of Everyday Beauty, the artistic experiments of Avant Craft, the interactive jewellery of Precious Technology and the challenges of 3D printing of Collective Creativity: these are the masterpieces of Italian jewellery, admired the world over, and here they become examples to be handed down to future generations in a pluralism of languages that intersects jewellery with art, design, fashion and new technologies. From prehistory to the twentieth century, jewellery has followed a linear, sequential and deductive path, punctuated by precious materials and social symbolism. The timeline of contemporary jewellery has fragmented into multiple reflections of often divergent values and contexts, sitting precariously between the eternal of precious tradition and the ephemeral of fashion. This present fragmentary nature opens up windows on the futures of jewellery. The protagonist is the necklace, the most representative and beautiful facet of Italian jewellery.
