His underlying aim is to prove that punk was more than just the cliché of mohicans and bad skin, but was a swirling, chaotic period of great experimentation in style. No linear study, the book offers a wide-ranging overview of the persistence of punk’s influence. The big coup of the book is its introductory essay by both Richard Hell and John Lydon, he who previously went by the name of Johnny Rotton. -Charlie Porter, V&A Magazine.

PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Bolton, Andrew, with Richard Hell, John Lydon, and Jon Savage (2013)

PUNK: Chaos to Couture. Bolton, Andrew, with Richard Hell, John Lydon, and Jon Savage (2013). This title is in print. PUNK: Chaos to Couture considers the vitality of the punk aesthetic and its impact on high fashion, from the do-it-yourself ethos of punk's originators to the perfection defined by its couture descendants. Punk has had an incendiary influence on fashion. Although punk's democracy stands in opposition to fashion's autocracy, designers continue to appropriate punk's visual vocabulary to capture its youthful rebelliousness and aggressive forcefulness. Punk was like nothing anybody had seen before, like nothing.

Learn about the punk movement with our book, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, surveying the influence on fashion from haute couture to ready-to-wear as seen.

Since its origins in the 1970s, punk has had an explosive influence on fashion. With its eclectic mixing of stylistic references, punk effectively introduced the postmodern concept of bricolage to the elevated precincts of haute couture and directional ready-to-wear. As a style, punk is about chaos, anarchy, and rebellion. Drawing on provocative sexual and political imagery, punks made fashion overtly hostile and threatening. This aesthetic of violence – even of cruelty – was intrinsic to the clothes themselves, which were often customized with rips, tears, and slashes, as well as studs, spikes, zippers, D-Rings, safety pins, and razor blades, among other things.

This extraordinary publication examines the impact of punk’s aesthetic of brutality on high fashion, focusing on its do-it-yourself, rip-it-to-shreds ethos, the antithesis of couture’s made-to-measure exactitude. Indeed, punk’s democracy stands in opposition to fashion’s autocracy. Yet, as this book reveals, even haute couture has readily appropriated the visual and symbolic language of punk, replacing beads with studs, paillettes with safety pins, and feathers with razor blades in an attempt to capture the style’s rebellious energy. Focusing on high fashion’s embrace of punk’s aesthetic vocabulary, this book reveals how designers have looked to the quintessential anti-establishment style to originate new ideals of beauty and fashionability.

  • I am VERY DISSAPOINTED and would not reccommend this book for purchase. I bought the book before I went to see the exhibition. This was like looking through a very expensive magazine. There was NO REFERENCE to the Met show AT ALL. Where are the cloths from the exhibit??? where are the maniquins with muticolored wigs from the show. The Dresses made of garbage bags????? the versaci boots???? Mc Queen dress????? The recreated Bathroom from CBGB??? the list goes on. This book was a self indulgent experience for Bolton. He is making a lot of money without delivering a thing to the consumer. The Metropolitan should be embarrassed. I don't know how they could have approved this for Production.. I wish i could return this book and get my money back. Don't waste your time or money.

  • Exactly what I was looking for. Very happy customer, indeed.

  • Yes, I like this book, but as another reviewer mentioned, it really smells of toxic chemicals, I hope that will wear off.

  • A great book with an interesting view of the great punk era! Nice photos and commentary on the fashion of the times.

  • So there's been tons of criticism on the actual content of this show that I completely agree with. If you can't visit the show, read 'The Day that Punk Died Again' in the The New Yorker by Sasha Frere-Jones to get the gist. The show completely lacks linear curation, providing no link or association of the past (British roots, NYC club culture and SoCal punk) to present day punk lifestyles and fashion.
    However, with regard to the book, it's decent in that it includes great photography of the mavericks of punk as well as fashion editorial and runway images of contemporary fashion design. Simply, it's nice to look at and a good one to have in any fashion library.
    *were the publishers trying to be 'punk rock' in binding the pages upside down and backwards?

  • Beautiful photos, mostly rich black and white. Very appropriate for the subject matter. Love it! Great price for a beautiful catalog.

  • I love everything about this book.

  • This great book by Andrew Bolton is the only book on PUNK that you need to buy this year!..The inclusion of Wayne County
    (who is now Jayne County) is worth the price of admission alone... this is in association with the current PUNK COSTUMES
    Exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City!.. Don't Miss the book or the show!!
