WHAT WE WORE: A PEOPLE'S HISTORY OF BRITISH STYLE. Nina Manandhar et al. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2014. 192 pp. with 305 ills. (253 col.). 25 x 20 cm. LC 2014-936643 ISBN 9783791348988 In English.
Publisher's description: In What We Wore, crowd-sourced family and amateur photos come together to create a makeshift style history of Britain. Taking readers into 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 changes in British fashion and style. 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 M.I.A, Tracey Emin, Jeremy Deller, Jazzie B., PJ 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 nostalgia 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.
