Italian designer Emilio Cavallini will launch his first book on legwear today. Titled “Emilio Cavallini” and published by Skira, an imprint of Rizzoli, the 200-page book features 250 black-and-white and color illustrations. Edited by Italian actress and model Benedetta Barzini, suggested retail will be $100 in the U.S. and $117 in Canada. Encased in a silver cover wrapped in the Cavallini brand’s signature open-work hosiery, the book’s cover emulates the designer’s point of view: “If I can make a woman wear tights, then I can make a book wear them too. The pattern on the cover was a best-selling tight. I think the reader will be surprised to see what hosiery has turned into,” said Cavallini.
The book and its images are not simply about hosiery but also represent Cavallini’s passion for art and mathematics, said Barzini.
