About this item
Elvis Style is a celebration of the aesthetic world of Elvis Presley. As one of the most significant pop icons of the 20th century, Elvis’ impact on the music world has been widely discussed and analyzed. Surprisingly, however, his influence on design and fashion remains largely overlooked. Elvis Style investigates why Elvis was, and continues to be, an icon of style, focusing on his wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothes, cars, and interiors. Elvis Style offers the reader an intriguing and insightful journey though the crazy, cool and at times kitsch world of a true megastar. Contemporary design experts have been interviewed to offer fresh insights into Elvis’ style choices. These include Sex and the City stylist Patricia Fields, costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis (Michael Jackson’s Thriller) Oscar winning costume designer Mark Bridges (The Artist), the British celebrity hairdresser Trevor Sorbie, Andy Lecompte (Madonna’s hairstylist), Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton, Andy Spade (Jack Spade and Kate Spade brands) academics from the University of Mississippi, the Victoria & Albert Museum, George Barris (creator of the Bat-mobile and Elvis’ personal car-customizer) and Hal Lansky of Lansky Brothers (Elvis’ favorite tailoring house) who has also provided the foreword for Elvis Style. Elvis Style includes around 150 photos, many of which are full color and show rarely seen before Elvis-worn garments, interiors and cars from Elvis’ extensive private collection.
