Cally Blackman is a lecturer in the history of fashion at Central Saint Martins College. As one might imagine, she’s written extensively about the history of fashion and garments, and her latest strikes the nerve of our little blog. One Hundred Years of Menswear presents a comprehensive collection of images covering the last century of innovative men’s fashions. Along the way Blackman discusses the elegance of Savile Row, the rough and tumble of khaki and denim, and the impact of designers like Armani and Lauren.
Look out for One Hundred Years of Menswear later this month from Laurence King Publishing.
