New York, June 15, 2016 – Elvis Style: From Zoot Suits to Jumpsuits by fashion and design journalist Zoey Goto celebrates the innovative style-world of ElvisPresley. He’s the man who singlehandedly changed the way that America and the world dressed. The comprehensive, full cover 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 was as style king. Elvis Style focuses on Elvis‘ wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothes, cars, and interiors, offering the reader an intriguing and insightful journey though the crazy, cool and at times kitsch world of a true megastar.
“Elvis‘s influence on men’s style is incalculable. You can still see his legacy everywhere – that indefinable but instantly recognizable point where preppy meets rocker meets work-wear meets tailoring.” – Alex Bilmes, Esquire Editor.
Goto spoke to a number of leading design experts shedding 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 includes over 175 photos, many of which show rarely seen before Elvis-worn garments, interiors and cars from The King’s extensive private collection. Published by Redshank Books, Elvis Style is available internationally from July 31, 2016.
