FEAR AND CLOTHING: UNBUCKLING AMERICAN STYLE. Cintra Wilson. W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York, 2015. 334 pp. with 62 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9780393081893 In English.
Publisher's description: Cintra Wilson takes her celebrated eye for style on the road, traveling around the "belt regions" of the United States: the Cotton, Rust, Bible, Sun, Frost, Corn, and Gun Belts. She tackles the fashion choices of scantily clad club-goers on South Beach, unpacks the altogether impractical clothing choices at the Sundance Festival in Utah, and digs beneath the sartorial armor of politicians and their wives in Washington, DC. In this smart and rollicking book, Wilson illustrates how every closet is a declaration of the owner's politics, sexuality, class, education, hopes, and dreams. She also documents her own personal fashion journey, tracing her coming-of-age in San Francisco's punk scene to her unlikely appointment to the New York Times Style section. With her signature wit and utterly irreverent humor, Wilson proves that, by donning our daily costume, we create our future selves, for good or ill. Indeed: your fate hangs in your closet. Dress wisely.
