Two interesting fashion books at the library for you this week. Firstly, this new one above is for all you ladies that are fans of jeans, blazers and Patti Smith-type dressing.

“Originally published in Japanese on September 20, 1965 by Fujingaho sha, Tokyo, Japan.” (Syndetics summary)
Secondly, this is for fans of what’s known as preppy style. I guess that could mean if you like letterman jackets and chinos (which are all over Hallensteins at the moment). Its kind of a strange one for a fashion book – just pictures of 1960s college students at American universities. But its been highly influential in Japan, where it was first published, sparking their years-long love of American style.
