Rock & Roll is about sensual transcendence--about uproarious sounds and incredible visual drama. As the lights come up and the band hits the stage, the first impression is of what
the musicians are playing--and what they're wearing. Now, from Tommy Hilfiger, the fashion designer most embraced by popular musicians in the 1990s comes this compelling revue of rock style--the clothes musicians have worn for the stage and camera and for sheer, outrageous fun--from the 1950s to right now. From the patched jeans and fringe leather of Neil Young to the chameleonlike transformations of David Bowie, the looks musicians have defined for themselves is as integral a part of their message and artistic identity as their music. Drawing on an assembly of brilliant, many rarely seen images from rock's best photographers, Hilfiger (working with renowned music journalist Anthony DeCurtis) guides readers through the wild visual world of artists whose sartorial coolness has defined what's hip. Focusing on the icons of rock, hip-hop, pop and R&B who have daringly pushed the edges of fashion and set trends--icons like Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Madonna and Prince--Hilfiger offers unique insights and sharp anecdotes to tell the ongoing, ever-evolving story of rock style. ' Rock Style 'is the quintessential book to define fashion as it has been molded through the music of the century. Tommy Hilfiger takes you on a visual journey, from the rootsy threads of rock and roll's beginning with Buddy Guy and Fats Domino to the androgynous techno-warfare regalia of Marilyn Manson. Rock Style charts the visions, defiance and creativity that continues to change music, fashion and youth culture. Spurning tradition, the past 50 years' most outrageous and stylish musicians are featured in dazzling color on enormous 12"x16" OVERSIZE pages.
