Surfers Soulies Skinheads & Skaters- The Library

One of my favorite fashion inspiration books!

Blurb from the inside cover reads that the book "...goes back to the source, charting the circle of street style from the forties to the nineties, and featuring nearly 200 authentic outfits... A fascinating dimension is added as the authors place examples of street fashion alongside the high fashion creations they have influenced, illustrating how these fashions 'trickled up' to inspire top designers including Calvin Klein, Versace, Chanel, and Yves Saint Laurent."  There is info about the original designers, the owners of the outfits (who once wore them and put them on display at the exhibit) and the times the outfits were changing.  But don't take our word for it... here are a couple of images from this book that changed my life!

Need I say more?
