REBEL THREADS: CLOTHING OF THE BAD, BEAUTIFUL AND MISUNDERSTOOD BY ROGER BURTONSKU: AC-BK287
The renegades, the rebels, the revolutionaries. The outsiders, the outcasts, the outlaws. The bad, the beautiful and the bold. Roger K. Burton’s new book Rebel Threads: Clothing of the Bad, Beautiful and Misunderstood is the ultimate treasure trove and reference file for those who are interested in subculture.
The costumer designer-cum-independent stylist-cum-clothing connoisseur Roger has carefully curated together a visual guide to his extensive clothing collection that spans some of the greatest decades for counter culture. From the swing kids to the seditionaries’, from the mods to the dandies and everything in between, the book swirls with the energy of subversion and transgression.
Roger undoubtedly has a claim on the stories: from outfitting Bowie and the Stones, to re-fitting Viv and Malcolm’s new shop; from assisting on the Special’s Ghost Town video to becoming one of the gurus of Kings Road, in Rebel Threads, Roger invites the reader in to his unparalleled knowledge of the past. Each of his items are gloriously displayed and narrated in minute detail, and offers incredible insight into subcultures that are now immortalised.
If you like style, subculture and subversion then this is the book for you.
