Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista, Paris, 1990.

Roxanne Lowit

The 90s are back! In a richly illustrated volume, which accompanies her first ever curated exhibition, Claudia Schiffer brings together legendary fashion photographers, designers and supermodels, whose visions captivated and shaped the decade.

The book draws from a diverse panorama of various aspects, characters, and places, the interplay of which made fashion become a kind of ‘total artwork’ during the 90s. Major photographic works by legendary photographers are balanced with unseen material from Schiffer’s private archive. Readers gain insights into a diverse world of images: the extravaganza of Arthur Elgort’s oeuvre is shown next to Corinne Day’s intimate and immediate style. Ellen von Unwerth’s sense of humour and exuberant play with sexiness, meet the sculptural and perfectly composed works by Herb Ritts. The provocative photos by Juergen Teller contrast with Karl Lagerfeld’s elegant and timeless images. Many more iconic photographers are featured in the volume. The accompanying essays by leading heads of the fashion industry shed light on a decade which strongly shapes the culture of the present.
