ASIAN STREET FASHION: JAMES BENT Thames and Hudson Inc., New York, 2014. 272 pp. with 282 col. ills. 21 x 15 cm. LC 2014-932785 ISBN 9780500544402 In English.
Publisher's description: Asian fashion is perhaps most widely associated with the quirky, original creations that have come out of Tokyo in recent decades. While Japanese style has undoubtedly influenced the growth of fashion in Asia, there is abundant creativity to be found in cities across this vast continent and unique approaches to dress that have remained largely hidden from the outside world. Rich influences are being absorbed and reapplied in new ways to create bold fashion statements that scream innovation and individuality. From Bangkok's seemingly effortless blend of vintage and modern to Seoul's layered, sleek chic with a daring twist, the diverse results reveal an irresistible quality that unites Asian fashion as a whole; the refusal to conform to a uniform and conservative form of dress. James Bent has been photographing street fashion in Asia for a number of years and has traveled extensively throughout the continent in his quest to capture its wealth of clothing styles. Collectively, his photographs take us on a vibrant visual journey of creative fashion at its best, sparking our imaginations, inspiring fresh interpretations of style, and inviting us to view our own wardrobes in a new light.
