Here at Trend, we love books just as much as we love good thread and sharp needles. In our atelier, we have a library which houses a vast collection of reading material. Today, we are highlighting one of our latest additions, Reigning Men.
Reigning Men is a fully illustrated book which accompanies one of fashion's most comprehensive exhibits. It visually recounts history in menswear from the year 1715 to the year 2015. The book begins with a recount of 18th century style when young Englishmen modelled foreign fashion and mannerisms after touring the European continent. Reigning Men takes readers on an eye-catching journey which covers such iconic moments as the beginnings of Savile Row, post-WWII mod, the 21st-century man and more. With essays written by Style.com's Tim Blanks as well as Peter Mcneil, this riveting read also touches on connections between history and high fashion.
For those that unfortunately missed LACMA's Reigning Men exhibition, consider this book the perfect substitute.
