Punkouture is a stunning international catwalk displaying and reconstructing everything that has ever been sewn together in punk style. Divided into different thematic sections — clothing, hair, make-up, footwear, accessories, trademarks, and shops — this illustrated guide includes designs by BOY, Vivienne Westwood, Fiorucci, Shelly’s, and more.
Punk aimed to be a brutal attack to the middle class. They said that to be punk you just had to wear all that was ugly and combine it in the most absurd way: jailed pants and leather braces, straitjackets with chain belts and buckles in abundance, pants made with bags for garbage, leather pants, ripped fishnet tights, tattered skirts held together by huge safety pins and masking tape… Punkouture‘s color and black & white photographs and illustrations capture all the clashing styles and trends.
This collection of texts and images is perfect for fans of the 70’s and 80’s, music, graphic design, and pop and underground culture.
