Elvis Style: From Zoot Suits to Jumpsuits celebrates the innovative style-world of Elvis Presley - the man who singlehandedly changed the way that America, and much of the world beyond, dressed. The comprehensive, full colour book highlights not only the impact that Elvis made during his lifetime, but also his enduring influence on contemporary design culture - from pop stars and high-end fashion houses, to contemporary Rockabilly-fused street style. Elvis Style focusses on Elvis' wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothes, cars and interiors, offering the reader an intriguing journey through the crazy, cool and at times kitsch world of a true megastar. Elvis Style speaks to a number of leading design experts to shed fresh light on Elvis' design choices and influence. These include Sex & the City stylist Patricia Fields, Academy Award winning costume designer Mark Bridges, Elvis' personal car-customizer George Barris, and Hal Lansky of Lansky Bros (Elvis' favorite tailoring house), who has written the foreword. Elvis Style contains over 175 photos, many of which show rarely seen before Elvis-worn garments, interiors and cars from The King's extensive private collection.
