Hollywood and the Ivy Look
Wednesday, 16th Nov 2011
Publishers Reel Art Press have released Hollywood and the Ivy Look today; a new book by Graham Marsh studying the influence of the Hollywood elite on fashions during the decade 1955-1965 and their continued influence today. Showcasing the sartorial credentials of Steve McQueen and Paul Newman alongside the preppy sensibilities of stars such as Woody Allen and Dustin Hoffman; the book captures the essence of the 'Ivy look'. Much like the Mod movement, these fashion icons chose their clothing to illustrate attention to detail, with every outfit achieving an approachable correctness and laid back confidence.
The Ivy look continues to be one of the most emulated styles in contemporary menswear, with the influence of these silver screen icons clearly visible across the catwalks. From the tailored seersucker suit to the perfectly polished loafer; Hollywood and the Ivy Look is a comprehensive guide to this fashion legacy. Available from today direct from Reel Art Press.
