Decades: A Century of Fashion
"I'd rather be dressed up than dressed down." Cameron Silver
In Decades, Silver commits all his sartorial knowledge to paper in an over-sized, 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 Jacobs’ 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.
