Replacing the rigid and aristocratic uniform of the time with tweed jackets and trousers
flexible giving a more relaxed and more
accessible, Fred Astaire has become a model for
a whole generation and continues to be a benchmark for style lovers. Symbol of the democratization of post-war America, this naturally charming dandy also sported these casual outfits for a much more practical reason: Astaire was a dancer and his clothes had to be comfortable, of an irreproachable cut - they had to dance with him. Le Style Fred Astaire analyzes the legendary contribution of this dancer to 20th century fashion and deciphers his style, from silk clutches to white suede shoes, including his woolen ties or tweed waistcoats.
