What Artists WearRegular price £14.95
'This hand-sized tome is not merely an assemblage of photos; Porter ventures into studios and wardrobes, investigating what artists’ choice of garments can tell us about their work, their personalities and the societies in which they lived' - FT Books of the Year
An invigorating, eye-opening journey through the iconic outfits worn by artists, in the studio, on stage, at work, at home and at play
From Yves Klein's spotless tailoring to the kaleidoscopic costumes of Yayoi Kusama and Cindy Sherman; from Andy Warhol's signature denim to Charlotte Prodger's casualwear, Porter's roving eye picks out the magical, revealing details in the clothes he encounters, weaving together a new way of understanding artists, and of dressing ourselves. Part love letter, part guide to chic, and featuring generous photographic spreads, What Artists Wear is both a manual and a manifesto, a radical, gleeful, inspiration to see the world anew-and find greater pleasure and possibility in the clothes we all wear.
