Elvis Style is a celebration of the aesthetic world of Elvis Presley. As one of the most significant pop icons of the 20th century, Elvis’ impact on the music world has been widely discussed and analyzed. Surprisingly, however, his influence on design and fashion remains largely overlooked. Elvis Style investigates why Elvis was, and continues to be, an icon of style, focusing on his wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothes, cars, and interiors. Elvis Style offers the reader an intriguing and insightful journey though the crazy, cool and at times kitsch world of a true megastar.
