Elvis Style: from zoot suits to jumpsuits
THE ETERNAL STYLE OF A KING.
It was not only his voice or movements which made Elvis very popular, but also the way he expressed himself by using his clothes, cars and jewellery. These things made him to the man he was.
There are many books about Elvis his life, but lesser books about his style. We came across the book by Zoey Goto, author of: “Elvis Style: from zoot suits to jumpsuits”.
The name of the book says it already: it focusses on the style which Elvis had. From hairstyles, clothing and cars, to his unique home interiors. It gives you a deeper look into the background behind Elvis and his unqiue style.
Zoey Goto did speak with a number of design experts about Elvis, his design choices and influences. These include Patricia Fields (stylist from Sex & the City), costume designer Mark Bridges, Elvis’ personal car-customizer George Barris, and Hal Lansky who has written the foreword for the Elvis Style book.
With much bright and sharp pictures included as examples, Zoey Goto made the book suitable for everyone and makes it an interesting read.
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” is a quote by Yves Saint Laurent which applies well to the style which Elvis had.
We surely recommended this book to all the Elvis fans out there, but also to people who love fashion! Can’t wait to read Elvis Style: from zoot suits to jumpsuits? It’s available on Amazon.
