Auspicious moments. The art of being at the right place at the right
time. Just hanging around. Looking sharp. All dressed up and nowhere to go.
Doing nothing in particular. Making history. Expanded and updated, this new
edition of the book on the subject of streetstyle takes this vital, always
exciting aspect of popular culture from its origins in the mid-20th century
right into today's 21st century supermarket of style.
More than just a
history of streetstyle, Ted Polhemus' now updated classic shows how what we wore
always pin-pointed the spirit and essence of each era.
Since it's launch of 2010, Street Style has continued to
make tracks as one of the most influential fashion books over the last decade. A
one of a kind journey though the youth tribes and styles that paved the way for
the fashion designs and nuances of the modern day.
