Cally Blackman launched her new book, ‘100 Years of Menswear’ at the Margaret Howell store last week on Wigmore Street. Blackman signed copies of the book in the packed out store whilst Margaret Howell herself also popped by. The writer and lecturer with degrees in Fashion Design and History of Art and an MA in History of Dress from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London who teaches on the BA Fashion History and Theory course at Central Saint Martins College presents her book as a rich, comprehensive collection of images covering the revolution in menswear over the last 100 years with text by the fashion historian herself. Images span the course of hundred years from the elegant tailoring of Savile Row to Hollywood style icons to clubber’s culture, covering the evolution of menswear from the practical to the indulgent, explored in an array of rarely-seen photographs and illustrations.
‘100 Years of Menswear’ published by Laurence King out now.
