Forget platforms and flares, think the Pompidou Centre and Fiorucci. This sensationally illustrated appraisal of all aspects of 70s design celebrates the era for what it really was aesthetically eclectic and iconoclastic, a time when good taste was challenged, but not just in an orange-and-brown-and-man-made-fibres way. Sidestepping the cliches, "70s Style & Design" documents the huge creative scope of a decade which, more than any other, continues to influence fashion, design, music, film and literature today. The book segues between high and popular culture as it harnesses the eras multifarious trends from the Biba-led Art Deco revival to the ecology movement, punk to postmodernism examining the lifestyle shifts and subcultures that shaped them and charting their influence on fashion, design, architecture, interiors and art, from London to Paris, Milan to New York. "Seventies Style & Design" features a roll call of the decades pivotal fashion designers (including Yves Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood, Zandra Rhodes, Kansai Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Antony Price, Barbara Hulanicki, Bill Gibb, Elio Fiorucci, and Mr Freedom) as well as a diverse range of architecture and interiors (from Frank Gehry to Robert Venturi, High-tech to the Habitat look), furniture design (from Alessandro Mendini to John Makepeace), graphic design and illustration (including Milton Glaser, Alan Aldridge, Barney Bubbles, George Hardie, Jean-Paul Goude and Peter Saville) and art (David Hockney, Peter Blake, Cindy Sherman, Andrew Logan and Duggie Fields).
