Details

Rare photography and illustrations reveal the elegant tailoring of Savile Row and tough khaki and denim of the uniform and workplace giving way to an exuberant array of styles and colours as the century progresses. Packed with images of Hollywood style icons, the artist personalities of the 1930s and more, the evolution of menswear from practical to peacock is explored in an array of rarely-seen photographs and illustrations. The impact of Pierre Cardin, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and other designers is contrasted with the street fashion of the 1960s, punk and the clubbing scene to bring together the story of the flourishing menswear scene in one invaluable book. A unique collection, 100 Years of Menswear will prove indispensable for all fashion students, historians of dress and lovers of men's clothes. Cally Blackman is a writer and lecturer with degrees in Fashion Design and History of Art, and an MA in History of Dress from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. She teaches on the BA Fashion History and Theory course at Central Saint Martins College. Her previous publications include Costume: From 1500 to the Present Day (2003) and The 20s and 30s: Flappers and Vamps (2000).
