Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear 1715-2015
'features everything from sans-culotte trousers of the French Revolution to mid-’50s Varsity jackets and the Jean Paul Gaultier men’s corsetry of the early 1990s' - The New York Times
This richly illustrated book accompanies one of the most comprehensive exhibitions dedicated solely to three centuries of men's fashion, tracing the history of men's fashion since the 18th century which is being held at LACMA, The Power House Museum, Sydney and Saint Louis Art Museum.
The book explores fashions including the 19th-century dandy; the post-WWII mod, and the 21st-century man. Reigning Men illuminates connections between history and high fashion, traces cultural influences over the centuries, examines how uniforms have profoundly shaped fashionable dress, and reveals that women aren't the only ones who cinch and pad their bodies.
