Robert Elms on Menswear

活动时间:

活动只在2016-08-04进行
付费入场 (£15.00)

活动地点:

Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF

内容:

Join writer and broadcaster Robert Elms for a social history of London street fashion since the 1960s. In his modern memoir The Way We Wore: A Life in Threads, Elms charts his passion for clothes and how his memory of crucial events is defined by what he was wearing. Challenging the historians who have chosen to treat fashion as an exclusively feminine realm, this event explores the allure of the male suit, the importance of cloth and why clothes communicate more subtly than most objects.

Discover the details that count in Elms’ compelling description of suits past and present, real and imagined. He describes how he developed his taste in clothes growing up in north-west London between the 1960s and the 1980s and, at the same time, honed his skills for remembering what others were wearing when, and why.
