Miles Style by Michael Stradford.
But you’ve got to have style in whatever you do — writing, music, painting, fashion, boxing, anything. Miles Davis.
Miles Davis’s restless, rebellious personality found an additional creative outlet through his interest in fashion. From the big shouldered, pleated suits of the forties, to the Ivy League look of the fifties, the sleek Italian suits of the sixties and the more avant-garde looks of the last twenty years of his life, Miles Davis blazed a fashion trail whose impact is still being felt today. MILESSTYLE is the first book to examine Miles Davis, the artist, using himself as a creative canvas. MILESSTYLE features observations from notable fashionistas like Lenny Kravitz, Bryan Ferry and Lloyd Boston, as well as friends and bandmates like Quincy Jones, Ron Carter, Clark Terry and more regarding his sartorial evolution as well as what his style said about the music and the man.
