Overview

What Cameron Silver doesn't know about fashion is not worth knowing. For fifteen years he has owned Decades, the renowned vintage boutique on Melrose Avenue, hunting the world for couture from decades past, matching gorgeous red-carpet gowns to actresses including Chloe Sevigny and Michelle Williams, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lopez. In Decades, Silver commits all his sartorial knowledge to paper in an oversized, visually stunning book: ten chapters, each devoted to the iconic looks of a decade. Josephine Baker and Zelda Fitzgerald show off their legs in the '20s; Jackie O embodies feminine polish in the '60s; Calvin Klein's minimalism meets Marc Jacobs's grunge remix in the '90s. This true fashion bible includes original designer sketches and patterns and photos of rare couture as styled decades ago and today. There are contributions from and interviews with movie stars, models, and style icons, fashion editors and revered designers. Decades is a fashion treasure: a century of colorful history to inspire the stylish of today for years to come.
