BABITZ, Eve.  Fiorucci: The Book.

(New York, NY): Harlin Quist Book, 1980. First edition. Large format softcover. The story of the fashion brand that helped postmodernism to percolate mass culture awareness in the early eighties. Fiorucci opened a mind-blowing New-Wave boutique on 59th Street in Manhattan from 1976-1984. It basically looked like Debbie Harry’s dream closet: fluorescent jumpsuits, parachute pants, high-heeled sneakers and kooky disco clothes from Italy. It was the go-to place for Madonna’s rubber bracelets, Warhol launched Interview magzine with an event there, Klaus Nomi performed in the store window. It was a merging of art & fashion, all in the era of Disco. The book is the next best thing to having been there. A near fine copy in illustrated wrappers, uncommon in this condition.
