Contemporary Menswear presents in-depth profiles of more than 50 of the designers, labels, brands, stores, websites and blogs that have shaped and continue to shape menswear in the 21st century. From classic heritage labels such as Albam Clothing through to dynamic new labels such as Tellason, who set the fashion agenda for crafted, desirable denim, this is a detailed and characterful guide to an independent menswear scene that has grown into a respected, mature and yet still highly creative part of global fashion. It features interviews with key personnel from the menswear industry, including Minya Quirk, Nicholas Maggio, Glenn Kitson, Arthur Chmielewski, Jeff Carvalho and Mark Smith. Overflowing with imagery, looks and styles, and featuring interviews with all the key personnel behind each brand, Contemporary Menswear will be essential reading for the style- conscious and youthfully minded and an inspirational guide for all fashion designers, stylists, writers and students.
