The sixties was one of the most diverse fashion eras on record. It started out very much in the tradition of the fifties — staid and tailored and proper — and ended up loose and flowing and flowery.
“The decade began with Balenciaga and Givenchy — kings of a fashion that emphasized ladylike elegance,” the Camden, New Jersey Courier-Post recapped late in 1969. By the end of the sixties, the paper noted, camp had dethroned elegance. “The fashion was being set by unknown kids in London streets, hippies, and the weirdly costumed members of rock and roll groups.”
Each of the 48 full-page images inside was chosen from thousands of fashion illustrations — the elegant, the camp, and the many looks in between — published between 1960 and 1969. The drawings are arranged by year, moving from the start of the decade to the end.
Now, a half century after these clothes were designed, you get to grab your pencils or pens and dive into this set of vintage art to make it all your own! Hopefully, some of them will light your fire.
Note: This is not a typical coloring book! It features authentic vintage images that were drawn in the 1960s. See the sample pages on this page for a preview of what’s inside this book.
