Product Overview

The 1960s, especially in England, witnessed a spectacular renaissance of dandyism--a movement in men''s style that the media called the "Peacock Revolution." This entertaining book takes a fascinating look at the "Swinging Sixties" London scene--all illustrated with photographs, outfits, and ephemera drawn from the V&A''s superb archives. This is a personal memoir of a moment--in which fashion insider Geoffrey Aquilina Ross recalls the era''s most dashing figures, including Savile Row tailor Tommy Nutter, whose clients included Mick Jagger, the Beatles, and Elton John; photographers Patrick Lichfield and David Bailey; and hairdresser Vidal Sassoon; and discusses iconic London shops such as Granny Takes a Trip, Blades, Hung on You, and Mr Fish. Christopher Breward''s introduction places the extraordinary revolution within its social and cultural context.
