Product Details


A magnificent piece of photographic social history - broken up into chapters about the Black Ivy look in literature, arts, music, film, politics, sports, advertising, civil rights demonstrations and marches and in urban environments. [...] A revealing study of the role clothing played during a period of upheaval and social change.-- "Independent"
It is a rare event when a volume comes along that skews our understandings of fashion as effectively as "Black Ivy: A Revolt in Style--Guy Trebay "New York Times"
The black Ivy era showed how style could be deployed as an intrinsic part of a radical political, intellectual movement and could fortify a person's identity when they needed it the most. And that noble idea's moment has come again.--Justin Quirk "Mr Porter"
The images throughout Black Ivy capture various clotheshorses playing with the codes of the day to create something a little off but beautiful. It doesn't matter that the clothes are ordinary and pedestrian; what's documented here is not a set of breathtaking garments but the flowering and proliferation of a mildly subversive spezzatura.--Melvin Backman "Bookforum"
