True Fit: A Collected History of Denim
Viktor Fredbäck is a denim archaeologist, a true enthusiast of the iconic indigo-blue fabric and the history that soaks into its fibers. His incredible collection includes, in addition to rare vintage patterns and vintage trade posters, numerous artifacts found in old silver mines in Nevada, scraps of fabric and metal buttons mounded from the rubble for more than a hundred years. From this point begins the narration of True Fit: A Collected History of Denim, a journey through the evolution of blue jeans, from genesis to mass diffusion, from rugged workwear to the undisputed king of the 60s and 70s. This one-of-a-kind volume presents Viktor's entire collection through high quality photographs, accompanied by in-depth historical notes, advertisements, newspaper clippings, fashion lookbooks and manic details. True Fit is a true monument to the legendary cotton fabric and its century-old background. Size: 24 x 30,5 cm.
