520    Since its origins in the 1970s, punk has had an explosive 
       influence on fashion. With its eclectic mixing of 
       stylistic references, punk effectively introduced the 
       postmodern concept of bricolage to the elevated precincts 
       of haute couture and directional ready-to-wear. As a style,
       punk is about chaos, anarchy, and rebellion. Drawing on 
       provocative sexual and political imagery, punks made 
       fashion overtly hostile and threatening. This aesthetic of
       violence - even of cruelty - was intrinsic to the clothes 
       themselves, which were often customized with rips, tears, 
       and slashes, as well as studs, spikes, zippers, D-Rings, 
       safety pins, and razor blades, among other things.  This 
       extraordinary publication examines the impact of punk's 
       aesthetic of brutality on high fashion, focusing on its do
       -it-yourself, rip-it-to-shreds ethos, the antithesis of 
       couture's made-to-measure exactitude. Indeed, punk's 
       democracy stands in opposition to fashion's autocracy. Yet,
       as this book reveals, even haute couture has readily 
       appropriated the visual and symbolic language of punk, 
       replacing beads with studs, paillettes with safety pins, 
       and feathers with razor blades in an attempt to capture 
       the style's rebellious energy. Focusing on high fashion's 
       embrace of punk's aesthetic vocabulary, this book reveals 
       how designers have looked to the quintessential anti-
       establishment style to originate new ideals of beauty and 
       fashionability.
