9780500518335: A Life in Fashion: The Wardrobe of Cecil Beaton

The first book to focus on the evolving wardrobe of Cecil Beaton, whose brilliant style is being celebrated afresh as classic tailoring comes back in vogue

When fashion photographer and costume designer Cecil Beaton died in 1980, it was not surprising that one of his tailors was telephoned with the news before Buckingham Palace, despite his close association with the Royal Family. From the moment he arrived at Cambridge University in 1922 wearing an evening jacket, red shoes, black-and-white trousers, and a large cravat, to his appearance nearly forty years later at Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball, Beaton expressed a flamboyant sartorial nonchalance. He had accounts with the best Savile Row tailors; he bought his shirts from Excello in New York; and his clothes from Lanz of Salzburg now reside, along with other elements of his wardrobe, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

A Life in Fashion is a lively and informative study of Beaton’s style, which kept evolving over the decades, driving and reflecting the transitions in men’s fashion that followed the Second World War. Drawing on unpublished records and interviews with Beaton’s former tailors, Benjamin Wild delightfully scrutinizes Beaton’s approach to fashion as well as his influence on designers such as Giles Deacon and Dries van Noten. 80 illustrations in color and black-and-white

About the Author :

Benjamin Wild is a Guest Lecturer at Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design in London and a leading authority on the history of fashion.

Tim Walker's work appears regularly in fashion magazines including Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar, and Vogue. His book Tim Walker: Story Teller was published to critical acclaim in 2012. He lives in London.

Review :

“Many books record Beaton’s sharp-eyed views of what other people wore; this one examines his own wardrobe as another legacy of the prolific photographer, designer, and writer. Using photographs, diaries, archival records from Beaton’s tailors, items donated to museums or given to friends, and conversations with those who knew the man and his wardrobe well, fashion historian Wild analyzes Beaton’s distinctive style alongside changes in 20th-century fashion. For fans of the man and his style.”

Description du livre Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. When Cecil Beaton died in 1980, it was not surprising that one of his tailors was telephoned with the news before Buckingham Palace, despite his close association with the Royal Family. From the moment he arrived at Cambridge University in 1922 wearing evening jacket, red shoes, black-and-white trousers and a large cravat, to his first meeting with Greta Garbo ten years later in pristine white kid coat, sharkskin, and new white shoes and socks , to his appearance nearly forty years later at Truman Capote s 1970 Black and White Ball, Beaton expressed a flamboyant sartorial nonchalance - a sprezzatura. He had accounts with many Savile Row tailors; he bought his hats from Herbert Johnson and Lock Co, his shirts from Excello in New York; and the clothes he bought from Lanz of Salzburg are now, along with other elements of his wardrobe, in the Metropolitan Museum, New York, and the VA, London. His wardrobe went through many changes, beautifully documented and illustrated in this virtuoso study, which will delight and inform the big new audience for men s clothes that are distinctive, supremely well made, and carrying authority with style.
