‘Amazing – what perfect timing for fashion’s new wave’ Barbara Hulanicki, Founder of BIBA These 10 classic fashion items are part of the universal language of style: the White T-shirt, Miniskirt, Hoodie, Jeans, Ballet flat, Breton top, Biker jacket, Little black dress, Stiletto, Trench.

While trends may come and go, they remain symbols of perennial cool, part of a capsule collection of chic emblems that represent who we are, who we want to be and how we want to be seen.

The Ten tells the story of each item’s creation, its journey to popularity, and why it matters today. These stories are accompanied by stylish photography and illustrations of the icons – from Katharine Hepburn to Prince – who have worn the pieces so well.
