Iconos del Estilo. Capítulo II: Fred Astaire; Elegance made casual and natural

“Few men have influenced American style more profoundly than Fred Astaire. Replacing the stiff-suited, aristocratic uniform of the day with his looser, more democratic look of tweed sport jackets and easy cut flannels, Astaire became a new model for a whole generation, and continues to be considered an icon of style.
A symbol of prewar America democratization, this charming dandy also replaced pomp and circumstance with nonchalance for practical reasons: being a dancer, Astaire´s clothes had to be comfortable, they had to follow him”
