International Ivy

The emergence of Ivy League style, in all its vaguely college-affiliated trad and prep offshoots, has been well-documented in print (Take Ivy, True Prep) and online (see your favorite blogger’s blogroll). So one could be easily forgiven for thinking that all bases are covered when it comes to the best and brightest style of the ’50s and ’60s. The Ivy Look (Frances Lincoln) is a pocket-sized answer to that thought. Authors Graham Marsh and JP Gaul look beyond New Haven and Cambridge to view Ivy style as an international, cross-genre movement. Through classic advertisements, film posters, and album covers, Marsh and Gaul track the movement’s influence in the disparate worlds of jazz, Motown, and French New Wave cinema. Time to queue up Band of Outsiders…the movie.
