Elvis Style: From Zoot Suits to Jumpsuits is a celebration of the innovative style-world of Elvis Presley, from his wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothing and cars, to his unique home interiors.
Written by Zoey Goto, a fashion and design journalist for many of the leading international magazines including GQ, GQ Style, NME, Elle and Numero, Elvis Stylespeaks to a number of leading design experts to shed fresh light on Elvis’ design choices and influence. These include Sex & the City stylist Patricia Fields, Academy Award-winning costume designer Mark Bridges, Elvis’ personal car-customizer George Barris, and Hal Lansky of Lansky Brothers.
Elvis Style includes more than 175 photos, many of which show rarely seen before Elvis-worn garments, interiors and cars from The King’s extensive private collection.
Although Elvis never worked with a fashion stylist, he would gratefully take advice from the designers and tailors who dressed him. Elvis is shown here with Bernard Lansky of Lansky Bros in Memphis. Lansky is said to have been the first person to flip Elvis’ collar – a look that would soon became one of Elvis’ trademarks.
