If you like Mad Men, you will love Fifty Fashion Looks That Changed The 1960s by Paula Reed (published by Conran Octopus Ltd.). This book contains fifty outfits, fashion houses, and icons from the 60s that helped define the decade. Beautiful photos along with brief essays describing each picture make it a quick read and an interesting look at one of my favorite fashionable decades. Some fashion icons covered in the book include Nico, Emilio Pucci, Granny Takes a trip, and Veruschka. The pictures below are inspired by Megan from Mad Men’s French heritage and the Jean Seburg section (subtitled A preppy in Paris) from Fifty Fashion Looks That Changed The 1960s.
About The Book:
Building on the international success of the Design Museum Fifty series, including Fifty Shoes that Changed the World, Fifty Bags that Changed the World and Fifty Hats that Changed the World, this beautifully designed new title – curated in the series by fashion guru Paula Reed – takes a fresh look at key fashion pieces from the 1960s. Featuring Mary Quant’s mini skirts, Andre Courreges’ Moon Girls, denim-clad hippies and Celia Birtwell’s Romantic Peasants, this book captures and explains every influential look of the decade. For anyone looking to buy vintage pieces to add to their wardrobes of contemporary items, this authoritative and inspiring book will prove to be an invaluable source of reference.(Summary provided by Conran Octopus Ltd.)
