What kinds of things do fashion and clothing say about us?
What does it mean to wear Gap or Gaultier, Milletts or Moschino?
Are there any real differences between Hip-Hop style and Punk anti-styles?
In this fully revised and updated edition, Malcolm Barnard introduces fashion and clothing as ways of communicating and challenging class, gender, sexual and social identities.
Drawing on a range of theoretical approaches from Barthes and Baudrillard to Marxist, psychoanalytic and feminist theory, Barnard addresses the ambivalent status of fashion in contemporary culture.
