'Pride and Glory: The Art of the Rockers Jacket'


Hi Rockers friends !

Our German, London based friend Horst A. Friedrichs do it again with the release of a new book.

Acclaimed and award-winning photographer Horst A. Friedrichs captures today‘s spirit of the rockers‘ jacket with PRIDE & GLORY: THE ART OF THE ROCKERS‘ JACKET – a lavishly illustrated book published by DAAB.
First coming into its own as functional outerwear and later as a symbol of youth rebellion in the 1950s – the leather biker jacket continues to fascinate as much for its beauty as its mythology.

Belonging to that select group of garments that can be described as design classics – no other western clothing has been so customised… expressing the character and personality of its owner.
This book is an evocative showcase by photographer Horst A Friedrichs, which also includes never-seen-before vintage leather jackets from the Lewis Leathers archive alongside contemporary jacket designs… an introductory essay by Colin Fallows, Professor of Sound and Visual Arts at Liverpool‘s John Moores University, and an in-depth conversation with Derek Harris, Proprietor of Lewis Leathers.
Horst A. Friedrichs was born in Frankfurt in 1966. Over the years, he has produced a number of extraordinary photo books featuring fashion and lifestyle beyond the mainstream. Based in London since 1997, his freelance photojournalism work has included commissions by the likes of Stern, Geo, The New York Times and The Independent (UK).

This "Collector" Book will be out in November and we hope to sell it on our Store
