The book of fashion this week has been discontinued for years, until it has finally been reissued again, after thousands of requests of coolhunters from around the world. What this book contains to generate so much interest?

In the sixties, a so-called Japanese photographer Teruyoshi Hayashida He traveled throughout Northwestern United States stop in each one of the headquarters of the Ivy League to document the style of the time. The resulting book, Take Ivy, Publisher Powerhouse Books is absolutely great.

The series of photographs focuses on men and clothing, and that casual style exported to worldwide brands such as Ralph Lauren o Tommy Hilfiger. Whether relaxing in the courtyard of the University, studying in the library, bike or at the jetty, the Ivy League students are impeccably dressed and perfectly defined how was the youth during the reign of the Kennedy at the White House. Take Ivy It has survived the decades and is an indispensable book for anyone interested in the recent history of fashion.

My impressions

This book does not accumulate dust in my house, to my dismay. But at least I’ve been able to browse it, and draw some conclusions style:

  • For lovers of street style, it is curious to see how The Sartorialist finds inspiration among its pages.
  • No one seems to be premiere; everything looks used, and yet the degree of cleanliness is maximum.
  • The shorts are made for men with fibrous calves.
  • All students are combed like a character from the series Mad Men. Or is it the other way around?
  • Nobody carries tracksuit, or even the coming out in photos by sport.
  • Short sleeve shirt does not exist, not even in summer.
