The modern wardrobe owes its development not just to fashion designers in Paris or Milan, but also to gangs and movements brought together by a shared appreciation of music, sport, or a particular underground culture and a certain style that defines membership. This book is a look-by-look dissection of the key ideas that changed the way we dress—from the middle of the 20th century to the present day—explaining the most iconic items of clothing, how they were worn, what the look was born of, its cultural background, how it was received, and how it still resonates in fashion today. These styles have rocked establishments, created stereotypes, and expressed social division as much as they have united people, entered the language, spread around the world, and, above all, transformed dress for a wider public.
