Roger K. Burton’s Rebel Threads: Clothing of the Bad, Beautiful & Misunderstood features over 1300 examples of rare vintage clothing from the Contemporary Wardrobe Collection, an over 20 thousand-item archive of street style from 1940 to 1980. Rebel Threads traces how street punk styles were assembled and worn by the mostly teenage sub-culture in the swing, counterculture and blank generation eras.
Burton has 50+ years of experience collecting vintage street fashion. A former mod himself, he supplied much of the original mod clothing for the 1978 cult film Quadrophenia, before establishing the Contemporary Wardrobe Collection, to provide street fashion for TV and Film. He has dressed literally hundreds of influential bands, including David Bowie and the Rolling Stones.
