David Johnson con Gear Guide, 1967: Hip-pocket Guide to Britain's Swinging Carnaby Street Fashion Scene
This 'hip pocket guide to Britain's swinging fashion scene', gives a charming and now quite humorous look back at the emergence of London as a major player in the world of style during the 1960s. Opening with an informative and entertaining chapter exploring how the trend began and developed, it lists the most with-it Carnaby St boutiques and looks forward to the fashions of the future.
"This quirky, fascinating little book was originally published in 1967 by Atlas Publishing, London. A facsimile of the original pocket guide to the boutiques of Swinging London, this book is a must- have stocking filler for Christmas, or just a neat affordable addition to your own fashion library...The text is written in a relaxed, witty and humorous style that transports you back completely to when originally written...The final chapter looks at future trends in fashion and states, concluding that 'the pendulum of fashion has always seemed to swing to and fro -- it's just swinging at the moment!' A fabulous affordable little book, that is a quaint period snapshot of a more innocent time." --Vintage Fashion Guild
