Rin Tanaka's MY FREEDAMN 8 -1960's Pop Fashions
Rin Tanaka, who I think works on a high genius level, has produced and photographed the new My Freedamn! 8 And like the first seven volumes, this book is an essential buy for those who are clothes and film stylists, or deal in the murky world of vintage clothing.
Over the years Tanaka tracked down and photographed authentic clothing from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. Mostly from the collection of hardcore collectors. One can go into this fanatical world and see incredible amount of clothing that tells that era's obsessions and of course the craftsman’s skill in making these clothes.
