Elvis Style

Elvis Style is a celebration of the aesthetic world of Elvis Presley. As one of the most significant pop icons of the 20th century, Elvis’ impact on the music world has been widely discussed and analysed. Surprisingly, however, his influence on design and fashion remains largely overlooked. Elvis Style investigates why Elvis was, and continues to be, an icon of style, focusing on his wonderfully expressive hairstyles, clothes, cars, and interiors. Elvis Style offers the reader an intriguing and insightful journey though the crazy, cool and at times kitsch world of a true megastar.

Contemporary design experts have been interviewed to offer fresh insights into Elvis’ style choices. These include Sex and the City stylist Patricia Fields, costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis (Michael Jackson’s Thriller) Oscar-winning costume designer Mark Bridges (The Artist), the British celebrity hairdresser Trevor Sorbie, Andy Lecompte (Madonna’s hairstylist), Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton, Andy Spade (Jack Spade and Kate Spade brands) academics from the University of Mississippi, the Victoria & Albert Museum, George Barris (creator of the Bat-mobile and Elvis’ personal car-customiser) and Hal Lansky of Lansky Brothers  (Elvis’ favourite tailoring house) who has also provided the foreword for Elvis StyleElvis Style includes around 150 photos, many of which are full colour and show rarely seen before Elvis-worn garments, interiors and cars from Elvis’ extensive private collection.

About the author: Zoey Goto is a fashion and design journalist, writing for many of the leading international magazines including GQ, GQ Style, Elle and Numero. Assignments have included interviewing the actor Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of Sherlock, visiting the world’s most expensive tailoring house in Naples and reporting from the front row of London Fashion Week. For over a decade, Elvis Style has been a work in progress, as the author embarked on research trips taking her from an imitation of Graceland in the suburbs of Denmark, to The Deep South where she met Elvis’ tailor, had lunch with Elvis’ neighbour Al Green, and slept overnight in Elvis’ teenage bedroom.
