Kennedy Fashion

John, Robert and Edward Kennedy, 1960

John, Robert and Edward Kennedy, 1960

With the recent passing of Edward “Teddy” Kennedy, I wanted to write something about Kennedy fashion but for better or worse, I read “The Look of Rich Tradition” article by Robin Givhan that pretty much sums up anything I would’ve said:

“their attire so perfectly captures a not-so-distant era in the culture. Those images of the Kennedy clan — so steeped in mythology — speak of a particular kind of subtly sporty American style that the fashion industry has devalued. It also calls to mind a brand of noblesse oblige politics that our culture now regards with suspicion.”

Read the full Washington Post article here.

And then read the awesome Ad Busters’ rebuttal here.
