The Ivy Look is a pictorial celebration of the clothing and accessories that dominated the American male dress code from 1955 to 1965. From the button-down hip of Steve McQueen, Paul Newman and Miles Davis to the continental Ivy influenced sharp suits of Jean Paul Belmondo and Marcello Mastroianni, from the preppy elegance of the Kennedy brothers to the enduring style of the clothes-obsessed London mods – they all knew the true cool of the Ivy look. The Ivy Look digs deep into the vaults to produce the ultimate guide to the genuine article. New still life shots of original clothing and accessories plus key examples of the cover art of Blue Note, Stax, Motown and Atlantic Records. Contemporary magazine advertisements, French New Wave and key American movie posters and new illustrations will bring the Ivy look into sharp focus.
