Bikinis, Bell-Bottoms and Little Black Dresses

70 Great Fashion Classics

Kate Mulvey

lip-flops originated in ancient Egypt, sailors wore bell-bottom trousers – a wide leg could be rolled up while swabbing the decks – and the first people to don a parka-style coat were the Canadian Inuit. Taking 70 icons of style, from berets and bikinis to desert boots, this guide charts the history of each item, with photographs revealing how trends have been inspired by work-wear, film, history and the military.
