The Day of the Peacock
Available in Stock
In the 1960s, men's fashion witnessed an extraordinary rebirth that media commentators described as the Peacock Revolution. This richly illustrated book recalls the shops, celebrity photographers, tailors and fashionable dressers who made up 'the scene'. The photographs and ephemera, drawn from the V&A's superb archives, evoke the Sixties atmosphere of optimism and opportunity and include some of the era's most stylish figures, among them David Hemmings, Ossie Clark and Patrick Lichfield and iconic shops such as Blades and Mr Fish.
