More About This Book

Overview

Non-wrinkling, silk jersey clothing, with bold and colorful prints signed by the most distinguished fashion designers of the day, became popular in the 1960s, especially for glamorous people who traveled worldwide. It was dynamic clothing photographed by the celebrity press that became coveted by the general public. This book is the first serious record of those textiles that swept the fashion world and inspired copycat items for ready-to wear customers. Over 350 gorgeous color photographs display party and casual styles of "signature prints" that remain classic today. Italy's Emilio Pucci started the rage, and he was quickly followed by fashion designers Mr. Dino, Paganne, Eduardo, and more. See hundreds of signature prints from 18 clothing designers as well as many unknowns. These pages drip with color and high-fashion style, including period shoes, jewelry, handbags, and other accessories that relate the author's keen knowledge of the style and period. The book is nostalgic and inspiring. These originals bring high prices today and contemporary signature prints are again important fashion statements.

    Great mod glamour flashback

    In my mind there's no point doing a collector's book unless it's full color, especially when the subject is so mind-blowingly vivid. The prints and fashions featured are fantastic and the colors are so amazing - psychedelics, pastels, primary - and every point on the color wheel you didn't know existed. The prints and fashions are nostalgic, glamourous, sometimes unbelievable and always enjoyable.

    I love seeing the fashions on actual human models, and the vintage jewelry was carefully chosen to enhance the garments. However, I found it distracting to have the hairstyles and shoes on many of the models not "period" to the garment. My personal preference would have been to see all of the garments "updated" with contemporary hairstyles and accessories, or to have them remain authentic to the era.

    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and plan to keep it as an important reference in my fashion library.
