"Dior: The Legendary Images/Great Photographers and Dior" (Rizzoli).
The book showcases the work of the legendary couturier and his successors at the fashion
house in classic images by major photographers which capture the models and clothes of their time. There's Henri Cartier-Bresson's 1951 photo of Christian Dior and the model
Lucy laughing in the models' cabine; Richard Avedon's 1955 "Dovima With
Elephants," and Loomis Dean's 1957 shot of models in Dior couture clothes for spring 1956, which include a smart, sharply tailored suit and a voluptuous emerald green evening dress.
"100 Ideas That Changed Street Style" (Laurence King) by Josh Sims.
Sims writes about everything from burlesque to acid jazz and how it
influenced street style. There are also essays on Goth, biker culture,
militant style, gang culture, Rasta, rave, graffiti, BCBG (the style of
the Parisian bourgeoisie) and even the cell phone. He describes
psychobilly as "Take rockabilly -- an exaggerated style inspired by 1950s
Americana -- and cross it with 1960s garage, 1970s punk, extreme
hairstyles, excess tattoos and a love of the lurid, and the likely
result is psychobilly."
