Description

“Few men have influenced American style more profoundly than Fred Astaire. Replacing the stiff-suited, aristocratic uniform of the day with his looser, more democratic look of tweed sports jacket and easy cut flannels, Astaire became a new model for a whole generation, and continues to be considered an icon of style. A symbol of prewar America democratization, this charming dandy also replaced pomp and circumstance with nonchalance for practical reasons: being a dancer, Astaire’s clothes had to be comfortable. They had to follow him. Fred Astaire Style analyzes the dancer’s legendary contribution to the twentieth century style. From such vivid accessories as the silk pocket to square to the white buck shoes and woven tie, this Mémoire deciphers his seemingly improvisational style.
