New book release Icons of Women’s Style is set to provide you with this month’s fix of historic fashion iconography.
Composed and written by fashion writer Josh Sims, this comprehensive history-meets-picture book covers some of the most iconic garments and trends of the last 80 years and the fashionable women who helped cement them into the archives. Sometimes the most covetable of garments have the most humble beginnings – such as the t-shirt – whilst some are just natural born legends from show start.
Exploring the wardrobes of the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Bridgette Bardot, Marilyn Monroe and Jane Birkin, Sims’ book is a living Pinterest board of landmark fashion moments and inspiration. Unearthing a treasure trove, Sims charts garment evolution – from one designer’s brain child to a wardrobe essential –with the help of a few household names. An eye opening view into why we dress the way we do today, forget the 70s throwback fringing du jour and take a minute to delve into the history of your everyday uniform, that ever wearable super-skinny high-waisted jeans and t-shirt combo. The discovery starts here.
