Rebel Threads: Clothing of the Bad, Beautiful and Misunderstood




Rebel Threads: Clothing of the bad, beautiful and misunderstood is a new book by stylist and collector Roger K. Burton. 

Featuring over 1300 examples of rare vintage clothing from the swing, counterculture and blank generation eras, detailed photographs and factual stories of the clothes origins, alongside many previously unseen fashion and film stills.

The book traces how these distinct street punk styles were originally put together and worn by the predominant teenage sub-cultures that emerged between 1940–1980, and set these kids apart from mainstream fashion.

A prerequisite for all lovers of vintage clothing, collectors, fashion students, designers, costumiers and anyone fascinated by the history of street style.
