Fifty Looks That Changed the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s by the Design Museum and Paula Reed


Not just one book, we're talking three separate books, collectively known as Fifty Looks That Changed the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s by the Design Museum and Paula Reed.

A joint project between Paula Reed, the Design Museum and Conran Octopus, the series focus on the most revolutionary, influential and definitive looks of three decades in fashion.

In Fifty Fashion Looks That Changed the 1950s, Reed examines the bombshell glamour of Marilyn Monroe in 'How to Marry a Millionaire' (1953) to the emergence of teenage style, via the sculptural forms of Christian Dior's New Look and Balenciaga's double A-Line.

The 1960s instalment captures and explores some of the most influential looks that defined a decade from Mary Quant's miniskirts, Courrèges' moon girls, denim-clad hippies and Celia Birtwell's romantic peasants.

Finally, the 1970s book delves into the fashion looks of Bianca Jagger in Halston, Diane Von Furstenberg's first wrap dress, the rise of punk and the influence of BIBA.

Each is a hardback and each is available as a Kindle download. The physical copies sell from £9.09, while the downloads are £5.99.
