Item description for Club Kids: Underground Culture by Raven Smith...
Club Kids is a stunning visual study and rigorous critical analysis of the social trends relating to `club culture'. The recent emergence of high-end clubs, which emphasize fashion rather than music, have become sanctuaries for misfits. Club Kids analyses the way in which club regulars condense all the aspects of their underground, eclectic, emerging culture, into the nocturnal hours. Art, music and fashion are at the forefront of contemporary Club Kid culture. Performance art reigns as performers like The-O (a glittercoated, power ballad mimer) take to the stage. Included in the book are fashion designers Casette Playa, Gareth Pugh and Henry Holland and stylist Kabir with his work for publications like i-D and Dazed & Confused. With an analysis of the importance of the social aspect of clubbing, the book celebrates trendsetters past and present. Club Kids provides a photographic journey through the eyes of the young people who shape our societies trends and celebrates the underground night culture--seeped in glitz and glamour--which has broken through to the mainstream.
