As bold and vital as the styles that inspired it, Surfers, Soulies, Skinheads and Skaters goes back to the source, charting the circle of street style from the forties to the nineties, and featuring nearly 200 authentic outfits in striking photographs with amazing detail that includes shoes, jewelry and accessories. A fascinating dimension is added as the authors place examples of street fashion alongside the high fashion creations they have influenced, illustrating how these fashions "trickled up" to inspire top designers including Calvin Klein, Versace, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. Accompanying the photographs are detailed descriptions and quotes from the wearers, giving their own highly individual views of their particular outfits. This is a flamboyant, one-of-a-kind survey of subcultural style that no one interested in fashion or design will want to miss.
