About this title:
Product Description: From Chanels coastal couture to Westwoods piratical punk, from Jean Paul Gaultiers beefcake camp to Tommy Hilfigers preppy classics, this is the first and only book to celebrate nautical fashion and all its iconic looks. Nautical style has an enduring sophistication, and this volume is a glorious celebration of its perennial popularity, tracing the history of its trends and impact on the clothes we love. From the beaches of Cape Cod and Nantucket to the yachts of the Italian Riviera and the Cote dAzur, not to mention catwalks everywhere, the nautical look has cut a sartorial swathe for over two centuries. Amber Jane Butchart charts the rise and rise of the nautical influence on fashion over five chapters, each one devoted to an iconic maritime figure. Written in a witty and accessible tone, Nautical Chic is the definitive history of nautical fashion.
