About this product
- DescriptionIn What We Wore, crowdsourced family and amateur photos come together to create a makeshift style history of Britain. Taking readers into British homes, onto city streets, into shops, and out to nightclubs and holiday spots, this book features a combination of original images and intriguing personal anecdotes that document the changes in fashion and style in Britain over fifty years. The book encompasses the worlds of Mods, punks, ravers, grime kids, and everything in between, with photos submitted by everyday British people as well as celebrities, including Tracey Emin, Jeremy Deller, Jazzie B., DJ Harvey, and Don Letts. From black-and-white photos taken with Rolleiflex cameras and Polaroid party shots, to 35mm film and selfies, these images and words combine to create a collective family album that feels both private and public, satisfying our yearning for stalgia as well as our voyeuristic tendencies. Most importantly, this book records and explains British fashion trends and gives the reader a rare insider's glimpse into youth tribes and subcultures from the past 60 years.
